1949 MG TC For Sale - Rebuild In Progress

Posted on January 28, 2014 at 4:55 AM

You may have spotted on the "Cars for Sale" page that I have a TC in the workshop at the moment. It's a cracking car that had been sadly neglected for a number of years. Rebuilt by an elderly gentleman, the car arrived with us having hardly been used. Sadly the paint, particularly the chassis had started to show it's age. 


With a quiet garage over Christmas I decided the car deserved some attention, you'll see from the photograph below that I've been busy. 



My son Luke & I have entirely dismantled the car, inspecting, restoring and replacing components as necessary. It's been a while since I've done this to a TC , a good reminder for me and a great lesson for Luke. In order to achieve the best finish we have had several components, including the entire chassis, axles, backplates and drums powder coated. You can see yourself in the reflection. As you'll see we've also fitted all new brake lines and will be replacing the fuel lines as well as rewiring the car. 


Our painter has been busy too, giving attention to every panel and we have had the radiator shell and headlamps fully rechromed. I'll be fitting a new hood too. Having worked so hard to restore the rolling chassis, we really want this car to be spot on. It will be one of the best TCs we've sold in a long time, everything checked over wanting for nothing.
