1949 MG TC SpecialShorrock Supercharged, Hill Climb Competition Cycle Fenders
ONLINE AUCTION on www.classicpromenade.com from October 27th through November 7th!!! Bidding is free!
This is a beautifully restored 1949 MG TC that has been enhanced with several upgrades including a Shorrock supercharger and hill climb competition cycle fenders (Sterling Moss raced with similar Shorrock superchargers back in the day!).
This TC Special was built on August 8th, 1949 and remained in England most of its life. We have a huge stack of 30 years of receipts from the UK dating back to August of 1966. This MG was fully restored in England in 2000 and its last MOT was from 2009. It has been in the US since about 2013.
During the restoration, this TC was taken down to the frame rails and every component was rebuilt, refurbished or replaced. The engine was completely rebuilt and the supercharger was bought new.
The body and paint are in excellent condition with a few touch up scratches from normal use. The cream and olive green two tone livery looks stunning and the chrome is overall very nice.
This is well accessorized with badge bars and badges, a tonneau cover and black canvas top. The MG has two windshields, the normal rectangular windscreen and the aero racing wind screens. Each of the windshields fold down to make it a true rally or hill climb racer. We love the “Mig”, the ominous hood ornament embellishing the front of the TC. This TC is also equipped with a badge bar fitted with several badges.
We love the apple green leather and carpeting. The wood dash has full instrumentation and is ready for use!! A period correct Jaeger water temperature gauge and a discreet turn signal switch have been added to the dash fascia. Also, a boost gauge has been added to confirm the extra air being forced into the carburetor. This extra power allows the MG TC to keep up with modern traffic, unlike most TC’s.
This TC comes with two complete sets of wheels and tires. For hill climb racing or use, it comes with 19″ x 2.50 on the rear (and spare) and 18″ x 2.50 on the front. For everyday modern day-to-day use it comes with 15″ x 4.50 60-spoke wheels and radials. You can choose your use and look!
