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”.
