MG TC 1948
This charming TC was built on 17th March 1948. It was purchased by a Mr. Maxwell of Illinois in 1968 and then taken off the road some eleven years later. Maxwell however retained the car until it was sold to the previous UK owner in 2006 as a complete restoration project.
Re-imported to the UK in November 2006 the car then underwent a six year full restoration with parts costs alone reported to exceed £ 22,000.
The opportunity was taken to up-grade the car with a type nine 5 speed gearbox, improved charging and headlamps along with an improved steering box. The rebuild incorporated a new ash frame, body panels etc. In fact all areas seem to have been replaced or rebuilt. The car comes with a very large file of papers, invoices etc. plus some photos of the rebuild.
Today the car presents really well with a particularly attractive colour scheme. It is lively and fun to drive. This is motoring from a different era and all the better for it.
Very much the traditional British sportscar. Often credited as introducing this type of car to the America, as they were popular with visiting US servicemen.
Only produced in right hand drive. Powered by the XPAG engine of 1250cc.
The last MG to feature 19" wire wheels.
