For Sale: 1946 MG TC in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

STK 3197 1946 MC TC

This award-winning 1946 MG-TC is 'Best in Class' and has won in virtually every show entered including the highest award offered in the 'AACA Senior Division'. It is that ... and more. Just over 10,000 MG-TC roadsters were produced from 1945 through 1949 (1,600 in model year 1946). Despite the fact that all were right-hand drive, the TC models were exported to the US - many say these cars started the sports car craze in America. This MG-TC has had only one owner for the last 49 years. It was restored to this outstanding state in the mid-70s and has been carefully maintained in a climate-controlled garage since. The stunning body was professionally prepped and beautifully refinished in Dark Burgundy. All chrome is virtually perfect and accents include a chromed windshield frame, driver mirror, 7" headlights, factory fog light, grill frame w/contrasting copper insert, rear luggage rack and dual spare tires (racing option). The interior has been completely restored and carefully detailed back-to-original. Tan leather seats, carpeting, door panels, wheel and dash are all in excellent nick, as are all of Jaegar/Lucas gauges. The roadster has the rare 'American' dealer option - a heater. There is cream cloth top w/side curtains and fitted tonneau cover. The XPAG series1250cc OHV 4-cylinder was completely rebuilt in 1975 and the number plate on the motor matches the number on the factory chassis/engine plate. In stock trim the XPAG has a rated output of 54bhp at 5,200rpm w/7.4:1 compression and dual SU carbs. The owner states that this engine has the 'Stage 1' upgrade that includes a boost in compression to 8.6:1 (by milling the cylinder head), porting intake/exhaust chambers and porting/polishing the intake manifold. Carb needles were replaced to match larger .090 jets. Resulting horsepower is said to have increased from 54hp to 60hp - a 10% gain. The 4-cylinder sounds great and is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. Electrics are 12V/positive ground, brakes are hydraulic 4-wheel drum and the chassis is fitted with front/rear leaf spring suspension. Knock-off wire wheels mount Dunlop 4.50x19 tires. This MG-TC is an icon - British history that will anoint your garage with royalty. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
