Classic Car Overview

West Coast Classics are proud to present an exceptional and very rare example of this 1949 MG TC Roadster with its original matching #s engine and a truly superb example of the diminutive, classically styled two-seat Roadster that is credited with sparking Americas love affair with imported sports cars after World War II.Chassis no.

Featuring glossy British Racing Green paint over supple Tan leather upholstery, and a striking matching Gold grille! It retains its original XPAG 1,250 cc engine and correct mechanicals, plus excellent ash wooden body framing and a clean undercarriage. This Elegance Classic English MG is one of the MG TC models built between 1945 and 1949. It has the original matching engine, XPAG 8665, with four cylinders and 1250 cc displacement yielding 54 horsepower. Its top speed was factory rated at 75 miles per hour with acceleration from 0 to 50 mph at 14.7 seconds.Riding on correct painted 19 knock off wire wheels with period style BG Goodrich Silvertown Bias-Ply tires, this 1949 MG TC is a wonderful example of one of the worlds all-time most important sports cars and an archetypal prewar British sports car design that carried over into the postwar period.The TC was built between 1945-49 and was the primary influence in turning Americans onto European sports cars. It has since achieved rare Milestone status and with its classic lines, freestanding headlamps, upright radiator shell, sweeping front fenders, rakish cutaway doors, fold down windshield, abbreviated tail which houses the fuel tank and spare tire, and 19 diameter wire wheels with knock off hubs.The simple 1250cc cast iron four cylinder engine was a revelation and the cars agility made a strong impact on American car racers, including famously Carrol Shelby whose first race car was a TC and which sold at Barrett Jackson in 2015 for over $500K. No left hand drive models were ever built and now any good example is a cult favorite and sure fire collectible British Sports car and rare matching #s well sorted examples like this one will always attract the most discerning of collectors.This extraordinarily charming and obviously exceptionally well preserved and restored stock TC presents absolutely beautifully inside and out. It is apparent that some extremely high-quality and factory correct restoration work was performed in the past, with many original factory finishes remaining intact, including much of the chrome and brightwork. The car also drives as well as it must have when new, mechanically it has absolutely no known issues, turn key ready. Very rare to find original matching numbers engine with ID plates and factory stampings are in place with classic silver painted wire wheels fitted, with a 5th spare strapped to the back.In summary it would be hard to find a finer matching #s example available anywhere else.
