The MG TC was unveiled to the market in 1945 and was the first post-war MG model. The new model 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 and improved interior space while the 1,250cc inline 4-cylinder engine saw an increased compression ratio that and raised power output to 55 horsepower. 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. after they returned from serving in the war. Despite being only produced in right-hand-drive, the TC was exported and sold new to the U.S. market, who fell in love with the nimble handling and simplicity of the TC that proved to 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 and when new, helped to solidify MG as a sports car company. Today, this charming British roadster is one of the many post-war classics that are highly respected and collected in both professional and enthusiast circles.
