The 1949 MG TC Roadster featured here is finished in stunning all black over a wonderful green leather interior and beige folding convertible top. This stunning example was completed at the factory in 1948 and by the early 1970’s was being maintained by a Chicago, Illinois, based enthusiast.

Today, this MG TC presents wonderfully and has just been fitted with a new convertible top, side curtains and top boot. Still powered by its numbers matching XPAG engine, this exmple is accompanied by its instruction manual, brochures, MG Car Club letter verifying the numbers matching engine, and various records dating back more than 45 years!

HISTORY OF THE MG TCThe MG TC was unveiled to the market in 1945 and was the first post-war MG model. The new MG had the same layout and lines as the pre-war TB with some minor improvements. MG widened the body of the TC by four inches which improved interior space while the 1,250cc inline 4-cylinder engine saw an increased compression ratio that and raised power output. Handling was also improved with new shackled suspension springs verses the trunnion mounted springs of the TB model. Despite the TCs’ dated appearance, the car was widely accepted, especially by American GI’s who had begun to export their cars back to the U.S. upon their return after serving in the war. Despite being only produced in right-hand-drive, the TC was exported and sold new to the U.S. market. America fell in love with the TC’s nimble handling and simplicity. The car proved that it could be easily modified for sporty drivers and professional racers. Only 10,000 TCs’ would be produced by the time production ended in November 1949, approximately 2,000 of which would be sold new in the U.S. The MG TC is the perfect combination of pre-war style with post-war performance which solidified MG’s reputation as a sports car company. Today, the MG TC is a viewed as a charming British roadster with timeless appeal. It is no wonder why examples are respected and collected in both professional and enthusiast circles.
