1946 MG TC - Now Sold
For many years the MG TC has been regarded as one of the archetypal British sports cars of its period – purposeful in appearance, with the classic rear ‘slab’ type fuel tank, long swept front wings and a brisk performance, the car was every young man’s dream in the early post war years. Demand from North America was to take precedence in those ‘export or die’ times and the waiting list for home market cars was very long indeed.
The example offered here is one that didn’t venture overseas, however. The build date is shown on the MGCC T Register records as 20th June 1946 and the car was first registered in Birmingham on 3rd July that year.
The car has been the subject of considerable refurbishment with body frame receiving attention in recent years and a quality repaint in MG Orient Red being carried out. The radiator has recently been re-cored and the carburettors rebuilt. The car retains its original engine and has the optional luggage rack. The windscreen side deflectors are a welcome addition.
Maintenance for some years has been entrusted to a well known specialist and this is evident in the way the car drives – it is remarkably taut and lively with a very positive feel. The hood, sidescreens and tonneau cover are all in good, serviceable condition and the car is in very pleasing order and ready to enjoy.
Much paperwork is supplied, including photos of work being undertaken, plus the original Instruction Manual. A buff RF60 logbook, dating back to 1957 is also on file.
