has always tried to make buying as easy and thrifty as possible promising to try always to meet or beat the competitor prices. Once a published price is in place that policy becomes somewhat of a problem on several levels. My returning customers know that I strive to give a line item discount to all I sell and promote one stop shopping for a total bottom line savings when certain items may not fall into the parameters above. I still have a no hassle guarantee of: "If you find it cheaper somewhere else simply tell me where and how much and I will do all I can to beat or meet that price!"  This of course is based upon equal quality and retail or retail "sale" prices.

MGC provenance
The MGC differs most from the MGB from the firewall forward and the rear brakes/wheels.

We enjoy working with people and feel we can advise good and better prices and product when given the opportunity.  This comes at a cost of time but we are more customer oriented in our approach.  For those who prefer the internet shopping basket, use any link, copy and paste the cart or part numbers and email me for a quote.  We have direct cross references to our principle suppliers Moss, or OEM part numbers;
Below is a compilation of the 3 parts manuals BMC published for the MGC.  It is completely searchable and printable....feel free if you wish.  When ordering from Kirks the OEM part numbers are my first line of reference so this can help us both to insure we are speaking about the same parts.  You may not find all the parts, for instance carburetors are not included, but I am happy to assist with rebuild kits or associated parts that often need replacement.

Complete MGC Decal Set - $125  ...VERY limited supply and end of production.

All correctly sized and duplicated from original samples, this set of MGC decals is the perfect finishing touch for your MGC restoration.  All decals are printed on 3M ControlTac ® transfer material for long lasting good looks and ease of installation.  The Tudor decal is furnished as a paint mask so you can duplicate the original silk-screened logo.

Application instructions included with each set.

Complete MGC decal sets includes:

•    G.T. or Tourer tire pressure decals
•    Cooling system drain warning
•    Odometer warning (printed on clear)
•    Coopers air cleaner
•    Tecalemit oil filter
•    Overdrive
•    Negative earth
•    MG valve cover
•    Emission valve cover
•    EPA firewall label
•    Smiths heater
•    Battery disconnect warning
•    Smiths rotation decals (one early, one late)
•    Tudor paint mask

I have been asked why these are so costly in comparison with what other ‘major vendors” sell for much less.  Simple answer…these are the closest to OEM ever available:

“Their” sets are incomplete, inaccurate, and printed on sub-standard materials.
•    Smiths heater rotation - rotation arrows are on the wrong side
•    Smiths heater, missing mfg date, incorrect serial numbers
•    Coopers - wrong size
•    Tecalemit - unavailable
•    O/D - unavailable
•    Emissions (valve cover) - incorrect settings information
•    MG (valve cover) - die cuts are incorrect for MGC (should be rounded not squared off), MG logo is incorrect
•    EPA firewall - unavailable
•    Tire pressures - incorrect information and/or incorrect fonts
•    Odometer - unavailable
•    Battery warning - incorrectly die cut

Kirks-Auto’s offering via Plan B are built using high resolution photographs of original labels and is accurate in every detail including errors original to each piece. They are printed on 3M ControlTac material which is meant to do the job.

If you want something that's inaccurate and incomplete but cheap, go to the major vendors.. If you're looking for a product that is worthy of your car and restoration, then the Kirks-Auto set would be a better choice. You get what you pay in some cases.


MG V-6 and V-8 guys need to know I stock two styles of 3.07 crown wheel and pinion gears.
One that fits the factory MGB the other fits the factory MGC and V-8s.  The rear ends are otherwise identical but the MGC got a larger carrier and its CWP is thicker than the MGB stock rear end carrier.  3.07 is the ultimate cruising CWP set up.  Both styles in stock.  One used 3.30 CWP with carrier and one MGC carrier available all POA

As you may or may not know I tend to market price my parts rather than get locked into a stock list of parts and prices which literally changes with every currency fluctuation, UPS whims of brokerage fees and transportation.  This is a current list and a jumping off point for reference later on.  If you find a comparable part for less, I am happy to quote based on bottom line delivery charges and my paid by check discount on totals. 

I'll be sending out a new "flyer" shortly with some new parts including the GT stainless trims around the rear hatch, pics of the exclusive vernier cam gear, new air cleaner hardware "tubes" at a lower cost, and the very popular silicone valve cover gasket impervious to synthetic oil leaks, etc.  To get these occasional updates in private emails simply email me with subject line, "add me to preferred customer list."
