1947 MG TC
The TC Midget was the first postwar MG, and was launched in 1945. The TC is quite accurately well known as the car that caused the sports car "craze"in America. It was quite similar to the pre-war TB, sharing the same 1,250 cc pushrod-OHV engine with a slightly higher compression ratio of 7.4:1 giving 54.5 bhp at 5200 rpm. The TC engine was a slightly improved version of the XPAG first introduced to MG in the TB. Notable improvement was through the addition of a hydraulically adjusted timing chain tensioner. All TCs utilized a 12 volt electrical system. All TCs came with 19" Dunlop wire wheels. 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 twin tail lights, as well as turn signals and chromed front and rear bumpers with over riders.
