“MG cranked out 81 new TCs in 1945, when materials (and everything else, for that matter) was in short supply, then another 1,600 in 1946, and finally 3,000 in 1948. In all, 10,000 were made until the model was discontinued in 1949. South Africa and Australia bought quite a few, but the big surprise was America, where 2,000 were sold and about 1,500 others were imported privately. There was even a North American model, still RHD, but with turn signal flashers and vertical chrome bumpers. In all, the MG TC offers a cheerful way to experience motoring as it was at the dawn of the post-war era. The T-Series MGs are fairly robust mechanically, though some engine and transmission parts are becoming more difficult to find. Keep in mind that T-Series cars were designed for weekly maintenance, so make sure everything is properly greased and oiled before driving far.” Hemmings.com
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this well-restored and highly original example of the 1947 MG-TC for your consideration. This excellent looking, excellent running model has seen a full frame up restoration which was completed by April of 2011 and has seen very little road action since keeping it in a “like-new” condition. We are told that the numbers match on the frame to the vin plate and with what appears to be the original engine which has been rebuilt before and again during the most recent restoration. When the current owner purchased this model they were informed that all engine parts and items were inspected and found to be within specifications of the original and was then repainted and reassembled with new rings and seals. Moss Motors elastomer seals were used in the front and rear of the crankshaft, cast aluminum valve covers were used, most of the original bolts and clips were kept and refurbished to keep originality intact, the frame, front and rear axles were sandblasted and powder coated, the shock absorbers were rebuilt with silicone seals, the steering column was rebuilt with Tomkinson rebuild kit and silicone seals were used for that as well, they really didn't skip a step in recreating this rare and beautiful model! With plenty more list of the quality work completed, a wonderful curb appeal and all the drivability you could ask for, call or email us today to get your chance at something really special!
