1948 MG TC
The 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.
