We have a superb 1948 MGTC for sale. This is by far the most stunning MG we have ever seen here at Left Coast Classics! With over $80,000 spent and less than 400 miles since its completion, this wonderful TC is ready to take anywhere! The paint is smooth as glass, the leather soft and supple, the undercarriage is just as immaculate as the rest. No corners were cut on this exhaustive restoration and it truly shows. If you are a serious collector who wants an amazing car built better than new, look no further.
This beautiful 1948 MGTC was sold new in Santa Monica, California. The current owner purchased this TC in 1966 from Lucien Remy, founder of the Abingdon Rough Riders who bought it from Howard Auto Co. in Belmont, CA. The car has sported the name "Byron" for over 50 years.
Soon after purchasing, the current owner began an extensive frame-off restoration. The car has been driven about 200-300 miles per year since and has been maintained all the while. Features comfortable leather interior and a wonderful handmade walnut steering wheel. The car looks nice, runs well and is always garaged here in sunny, dry California. She was originally British Racing Green.
Everything works great on the car, the crankshaft was recently replaced as well as the pistons, it has a TD Mk II head and a set of 1-1/4" SU's.
This is a rust-free, California MGTC with great history and a lot of documentation! Included are the original spoke wheels in good, usable shape as well as many spare parts.
