If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
You are looking at an example of what is arguably the world's first mass produced two seater sports car. The Mg TC precedes Porsche, Jaguar, Corvette, Thunderbird et.al.. Ten thousand were built, many still prowel the roads with an active and supportive owner's community. This one runs at a high level. The Carroll Shelby museum displayed an example of a TC as the first car Carroll raced. It sold at auction in the six figures.
I Purchased this car through Barry Briskman in 1999. I have done the mechanical work to a point where I can say everything works to factory specifications or better. I have renewed front and rear springs and bushings, the Luvax/Girling shocks have also been rebuilt. The original TC steering box (1.5 turns from lock to lock) is rebuilt. The rims are new, trued and balanced with proper Dunlop 19 x 4.5 (made in Great Britain) tires. The engine has been rebuilt and maintains 40+ lbs. per square inch of oil pressure at idle. A Moss Magna supercharger has been fitted and works well. This modern style supercharger has parts available. The transmission has been rebuilt and a high ratio rear axle fitted. Brakes are rebuilt with bronze wheel and master cylinders.
The body work is very good with no dents, rust or dry rot. the red Paint is bright and shiny. The convertible top and side curtains are custom fitted Stay Fast material as is the full tonneau. The carpets and floor mats are new as well as the floorboards.
Every part for these cars are available so that they can be kept running indefinitely.
This TC is sold as is where is. Best Reasonable offer.
I have enjoyed owning and driving this car this car for twenty years. Is it your turn next?
