The right-hand drive TC Midget appeared in 1946, and was almost identical in appearance to the pre-war Types TA and TB. These MG’s had many endearing features, including a slab fuel tank, 19-inch diameter wire wheels, folding windshields and octagonal dashboard instruments. Sales got a great lift when a Life Magazine photographer shot one being driven underneath a big lumber carrier on a Los Angeles street. Many soon found their way into amateur racing, and almost every one of the legendary American sports car champions of the post-war era began their careers in a TC.
The MG TC on offer today is an original UK car, which was exported to Vancouver Island and then repatriated back to the UK where it was the subject of an in-depth restoration. Bills on file total over £23,000 for the work. Most recently the car has been fitted with a new Pickering hood, along with side screens and tonneau covers and is running on Dunlop tyres with new tubes. For those collectors looking for a well presented T-Series MG, capable of participating in driving events and Concours shows alike, this example is worthy of serious consideration.
