MG TC 1947 - SOLD £23,320

This remarkable MG Midget TC was manufactured in 1948 and exported to South Africa. It was then imported back into the UK in 1987. We now have a list of all previous UK owners from the DVLA who also confirm that the car came from South Africa. In the late 80’s or early 90’s it underwent a full body off restoration but unfortunately there are no bills as they have been lost but the condition of the vehicle speaks for itself. At the same time it was re-trimmed and a new hood and side screens were fitted. There are a few MOT’s going back to 2006 when the mileage read 1811, now reading 2752. It is possible that this could be the total mileage since the restoration as we know the two previous owners never used the car. Little things like the tyres, the cleanliness of the underside all point that way. It has a stainless steel exhaust, aluminium sump and rocker box and the cylinder head has larger valves fitted than standard. The head has been reconditioned, new valve guides etc and it has a re-conditioned radiator fitted. Casterbridge Motor Company who carried out the work fully serviced the car, changed the oils, checked the brakes and went through it from top to bottom. Comes with a 99% complete tool roll and maintenance book. Has electronic ignition. The car shows a lovely patina and the engine pulls well and holds a good oil pressure. Finished in shires green with tan hood and trim. Matching engine and chassis numbers. We think this car is very fairly priced.
Cylinder head nuts need tightening down after 500 miles.
