Harry's Thoughts

I love the look of the Competition enhancements on this particular MGTC, It looks downright menacing- and with a supercharger it performs, too!

THE ESSENTIALS

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!

Interesting Fact: The MG TC was a part of the MG T-Type series that was produced from 1936 to 1955. This series comprised of five different models including the MG TC, and all are considered sports cars for the time they were produced. Specifically, the MG TC was only produced in 1945 and features an open two-seater body that sits directly on top of a frame. Fascinatingly enough, the MG TC was the first postwar MG vehicle produced and is credited for starting the Sport Car “craze” in the United States. In fact, this car was exported to America even though it was only ever built as a right-hand drive. From September to November of 1949, just over 10,000 TCs were produced which was more than any other MG model. The going price was equal to around $27,000 in 2020. The MG TC also uses a 1.3-liter XPAG engine that allowed the car to accelerate from 0 to 66 in a respectable 22.7 seconds. Car enthusiasts and collectors strive to find this model wherever they can due to its historical significance!
