Beautiful Colors 1949 MG TC Roadster54 bhp. 1. 50 cc overhead valve four-cylinder engine. dual SU semi-downdraft carburetors. four-speed manual gearbox. rigid front and rear axles with semi-elliptic leaf springs. and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 94"Few initials have enjoyed such immediate worldwide recognition as “MG. ” An acronym for Morris Garages. the place where Cecil Kimber transformed ordinary Morris cars into sporting machinery. the letters have become virtually synonymous with the term “sports car. ” Lightweight two-seater bodies. quick steering and modified suspensions made the cars very nimble. and an enthusiastic “works” racing program spread their fame. During the 1930s. MG won 37 major events in five years and set a number of records. among them the first 750 cc car to break 120 mph. as well as the first 1. 00 cc vehicle to top 120 mph. The first of the long-running T-series MG sports cars. the TA. arrived in 1936. a 1. 92 cc overhead valve engine. it set MG’s iconic styling direction for nearly the next 20 years with its upright grille. deep-cut doors and slab-shaped petrol tank at the rear. The TB debuted as war loomed in 1939. equipped with a shorter-stroke but more-powerful 1. 50 cc XPAG engine that ultimately powered MG’s roadsters through 1954. MG’s postwar return was marked by the new TC at the 1945 London Motor Show. which was somewhat wider and more substantial than the TB. representing an improved version of the vehicle. It has long been reported that returning GIs gave America its first glimpse of the MG. but in fact. followers of the nascent American motor sports movement had already imported a few prewar models. That enthusiasm. combined with regular imports of the new TC after the war. cemented MG’s growing reputation in the United States. This beautifully appointed 1949 MG TC Roadster was sold new through Plimley Motors of Vancouver in 1949. It has been a Vancouver car for the past 66 years (its entire life). Most recently it was owned by the Young family of Octagon Motors. and was part of their private collection. This TC received a high quality. frame-off restoration that is highlighted by a beautiful dash and excellent brightwork. The TC also features a tidy engine bay and runs and drives exceptionally well. It is rare to see the grills painted to match interior colour. as they were when new. instead of the more modern trend to plate them in chrome.
