Green over Tan
World War II interrupted MG production, but the TC carried on where the short-lived pre-war TB left off — the epitome of tradition unspoiled by progress. With a 4-cylinder, 1,250-cc overhead-valve engine that produced 54 horsepower, and the Top speed was around 75 mph.
The MG TC was the first postwar MG launched in 1945 and production ended in 1949 with an estimated 1900 of these cars reaching United States of which 494 were imported as 1949 models. It was exported to the United States, even though only ever built in right-hand drive. The export version had slightly smaller US specification sealed-beam headlights and larger twin rear lights, as well as turn signals and chrome-plated front and rear bumpers. The tachometer was directly in front of the driver, while the speedometer was on the other side of the dash in front of the passenger.
10,001 TCs were produced, from September 1945 to Nov. 1949, more than any previous MG model.
In all, the MG TC offers a joyful way to experience motoring as it was at the dawn of the post-war era.
