MC TC - SOLD
On offer is this rather lovely 1947 MG TC finished in gloss black with a period red leather interior. The car is in super condition throughout having come from a fastidious long term owner who has lavished much care and attention to maintain its current condition. It performed beautifully on test with light steering and benefiting from a more modern five speed gearbox which allows it to keep up more easily with modern traffic. The car comes with full weather equipment, is on the button and ready to enjoy.
For sale on behalf of the owner.
Subject to an older restoration, the bodywork remains in excellent condition with good panel fit and no noticeable marks.
All of the mechanical components were either rebuilt, replaced or restored which is evident through the way the car drives which is spot on. It starts easily and idles without fuss, the clutch is light and the Ford derived gearbox is a delight.
Within the receipts there is a recent invoice for a recent carb rebuild by Burlen and an extensive mechanical overhaul. Previously, the car has had the engine rebuilt including a new crankshaft, flywheel and clutch together with a modernised rear crankshaft seal.
All of the chrome is in excellent condition with all of the brightwork free from damage. The hood and side screens are present and in good condition with a little staining on the beige canvas but perfectly serviceable - most of the time, you'd have the top down anyway!
Restored some time ago, the interior leather is settling in nicely, the red really suiting the black exterior. All of the gauges work well.
Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.
