We are proud to present this beautiful 1947 MG TC Midget Roadster. This car showcases a nut & bolt restoration after a lengthy storage. This extensive restoration has just over 70 miles logged,.and 1211 hours of labor logged by the owner. He kept track of every minute he spent on the restoration. From 1946 until 1950, only 10,000 were produced. This was considered very successful for the little post-war Roadster. Only a fraction of these were imported to the United States. It is unknown how many remain today. This example is in pristine condition, one of Moss Motors Limited' finest. The picnic basket is very rare, vintage, English, complete and the perfect compliment to the open air roadster MG TC. Just after the war, many people started importing these cars into the US, sparking a new era in open air motoring and better times.
These are extremely rare items, made in England. These came from the long time owner along with the MG. We have photos detailing the restoration work. Here are a few photos of the work in progress. The chrome is just breathtaking. Many thousands have been spent on the chrome work alone. The gentleman in blue was the long-time previous owner of this TC.

Many, many tens of thousands of dollars have been invested along with hundreds of hours to get this car in the condition it is in.
