History of the MGC GT:
The fixed-roof MGC GT was introduced in 1967 and produced until August 1969. The MGC GT sported a ground-breaking greenhouse designed by Pininfarina for the MGB GT and launched the sporty "hatchback" style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the MGC GT offered the utility of a station wagon while retaining the style and shape of a coupe. This configuration was a 2+2 design with a right-angled rear bench seat and far more luggage space than in the roadster. Relatively few components differed from the roadster, although the MGC GT did receive different suspension springs and anti-roll bars and a different windscreen which was more easily and inexpensively serviceable.
