Following the close of WWII, Britain’s “export or die” industrial mantra spurred MG’s development of a TC Roadster variant specifically for the hot American market. Coded EXU for “export unit,” the first MG TC EXU Roadster was delivered in December 1948, and production continued on an ‘as needed’ basis. In total, only 494 such roadsters were built, accounting for less than 5 percent of total TC production. While the EXU had only limited success in the USA, it paved the way for the later TD and TF variants.

Features unique to the EXU included full-width bumpers, a centrally mounted MG medallion on the rear bumper, twin Lucas Windtone Horns under the bonnet, central license-plate mounts, laminated windscreen glass, flashing turn signals, and US-specification Lucas head- and tail-lights. The cockpit featured a gold pearl finish on the steering wheel as opposed to the traditional black, the rearview mirror was mounted atop the dashboard, two map lights were added, and the positions of the ammeter, oil pressure gauge, ignition and light switches were altered. Superchargers were often fitted to add power to satisfy American tastes, often bringing power output to approximately 70 BHP and increasing torque as well.

The magnificent MG TC featured here is finished in stunning Sequoia Cream with a gorgeous green leather interior and tan convertible top. This incredible motorcar was, after 42 years in storage, fully restored with no expense spared by Marquis Specialists Napa Valley restoration. Was shown at many Concours d'Elegance and recipient of multiple awards. Just released from nearly 70 years of single collector ownership. Opportunity to acquire one of the best at an investment price! Offered to the most sophisticated investor collector or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this great classic.
