1947 MG TC - Restored to a very high standard
To many MG enthusiasts, the TC is the definitive model of the ‘T’ Series. Still with pre war appearance and character, but with a few more refinements, including the extra width of the body, giving a less cramped feel in the cockpit. The excellent XPAG Type engine provided brisk acceleration and a top speed of 75 mph - very respectable at that time. Handling was taut and responsive, as was expected from an MG. With some 10.000 examples built between 1945 - 49 and a considerable percentage of these going for export, the TC won many friends both at home and overseas.
This fine example, dating from 1947 and finished in British racing Green, was exported to New Zealand when new. It was supplied to its first owner, a Mrs Bobbie Barwell, on 6th February 1948. Mrs. Barwell was clearly extremely fond of her MG, as she kept it until 1986, when it passed into the hands of its second owner who eventually embarked on a painstaking restoration from the bare chassis.
Such was the standard of the restoration that the car was to achieve several concours awards. The car was to change hands again during 1993 and was acquired by its current owner who bought it back to the UK three years ago.Presented in truly fine order throughout, this super TC is sure to please the most fastidious purchaser. The original Instruction Manual is included.
