STORY

The MG TC is a British sports car manufactured by the MG (Morris Garages) division of Morris Motors. First introduced in September 1945, it was a development of the MG TB, with "TC" standing for "Tourer Competition". The MG TC was the first MG model to be released after World War II, and it was produced until 1949.

Production of the MG TC began in 1945 after the end of World War II.

The design of the MG TC was inspired by the pre-war models, especially the MG TA. The car retained the characteristic vintage look with an open top and fenders.

The MG TC had a 1.3-litre four-cylinder engine with an SU carburettor that produced around 54bhp.

 

The MG TC was particularly popular in the USA. Many GIs who were stationed in Great Britain during the war got to know the car and brought their enthusiasm for British sports cars home with them.

 

A significant portion of MG TC production was exported to the United States. The vehicle's lightweight and agile nature appealed to American car enthusiasts.

 

The MG TC is now a sought-after collector's item, especially among lovers of classic British sports cars. Its nostalgic design and connection to an era of automotive history make it a popular vehicle in the classic car world.

PERSONAL STORY

This MG was owned by a large car dealer for many years. The senior boss has extensively restored it and given it the very elegant color combination of blue and black.

This British classic has long been part of the Manro collection.

What is special about this vehicle is the view of the cockpit, which is truly breathtaking and makes the trips even more beautiful.
