Stunning, post-war, British sports car.... Somewhat of a rarity in original right-hand drive form as TCs were built primarily for the US market, so it's a treat to see a home market car with its original registration number, GOF 335. Launched in 1945, the basis of the new car was the pre-war MG TB. It was to have a similar 1250cc pushrod-ohv engine, gearbox, and axles, and the only significant changes would be to the body which was widened by nearly 4"" across the seats without changing the basic chassis, wings and running boards or fascia layout. The TC was improved in detail too, the side screens now had flaps to facilitate hand signalling, the electrical equipment was also updated with the twin 6-volt batteries removed from the underfloor position of the TB to a bulkhead box containing a large 12-volt battery. There were also changes to the suspension, hydraulic lever arm dampers were fitted and the road springs were mounted in shackles rather than the traditional sliding trunnions.
This 1946 MG has only had three owners from new and was stored from 1963 up until 1995 and subsequently duly stripped down in readiness for a total rebuild. This took place from 2003 up to 2006 and there is a substantial photographic record of this classic car's return to its sparkling best. Initially supplied by MG with a 'Stage 3' option, (modified head, wider wheels etc) those features were retained during the restoration
Although the odometer is showing 36,300 miles this cannot be warranted, however, as its effectively a two-owner car (the third being a spouse) it may well be accurate.
Now presented in a delightful shade of French Blue, complemented by a Tan interior, Light Tan hood and chrome luggage rack, this charming MG's condition is as you would expect having only covered a few 'cossetted' miles since its renaissance. Accompanied by a huge file of invoices etc. from the rebuild, and photographs of various recent 'Club' events where “Daisy” has won a prize or two, this bright little 'TC' is ready for some new adventures.
