Lot 1955

Description:

1948 MG TC
Reg. no. 793 YUU
Chassis no. TC5049
Engine no. XPAG5672
The TC was MG\'s first post-war offering and it was powered by a slightly improved version of the XPAG first introduced to MG in the TB. Notable improvement was through the addition of a hydraulically (oil pressure) adjusted timing chain tensioner. This new model was exported to the United States in large numbers, even though it was only ever built in right-hand drive. Just over 10,000 TCs were produced, from September 1945 to November 1949, more than any previous MG model. This lovely example was fully restored over a period of ten years following importation from the US. Finished in a rather attractive light blue with a faun leather interior, this car was given a new ash frame and the original engine was restored. In addition, the car is far more useable, as now being fitted with a five speed type 9 Ford gearbox and a VW steering box. The cylinder head is also converted for unleaded fuel. With new brakes all round, it is now highly useable in modern traffic and should be a joy to use for the new owner.
