1948 MG TC

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

To many en­thu­si­asts the MG TC is not just the MG, but the British sports car. As the model that spear­headed British sports cars sales in the post-war pe­riod, their pop­u­lar­ity never re­ally wane – a trait that continues to­day. Charterhouse’s car was im­ported form the USA in 2006 and sub­jected to a body-off restora­tion. Eleven years later it still looked su­perb, with its ‘Peter Rab­bit’ blue paint, body and in­te­rior all in first-class order. The en­gine had been re­fur­bished with new pis­tons and valves, the orig­i­nal gear­box re­placed by a Ford Type 9 five-speeder and the steer­ing box was a later VW re­place­ment. A de­light.
