TC Parts For Sale

Contact Steve Simmons for info or purchase.  See club directory for phone number or send an email through the contact page on this web site (send to “Webmaster” and it will reach me).  Sandblasting services are available on most items, inquire for details.

Rear D-Lamp
Original Lucas D-Lamp in poor condition. No lens.  See photos. $10 obo.

D-Lamp Lenses
ST-51 single lamp lenses.  These are solid red to fit single lamp housing, not split housing.  Original Lucas lenses with very heavy glass in good original but used condition. $15 each.

XPAG Cylinder Head
Head is stock thickness (3.022″).  68422 casting, round hole with 3/4″ reach spark plugs.  Has some cracks around the valve seat which I have been told are repairable.  Bare head, no valves or rockers. $50

Deep Hellings air filters
These are period originals.  The shells are a bit weathered but there is a second set of nice original shells included with the original and rare (and very cool) Hellings Co. of North Hollywood sticker.  Make offer.

Pre-War Headlamp Reducer Rings
Set of reducer rings for 9″ headlamps as found on pre-war cars, to adapt 7″ headlamp lenses.  Good for putting sealed beam lamps on an early car.  Very nice condition.  $20.

TC Gas Tank Panels
Side panels for fuel tank.  Red color.  Chrome is a bit pitted so you will want to restore for a show car, but they are straight and solid.  Asking $50/pr.

MG TC-EXU Steering Wheel Core
Spokes and rim only, in need of complete rebuild and restoration.  $20

Fan Blades
TC/TD fan blades in good condition. $15 / pair.

TC / TD Radiator Brace
This is the bar that bolts to the rear of the radiator and acts as an anchor point for the headlamp supports. $25.

Brake Drums
Set of 4 TC brake drums. They were measured (not by me) and three of them were found to be worn beyond comfortable limits. Possibly a good candidate for re-lining? $20 for all 4 drums, or FREE for TC Motoring Guild members.

More Brake Drums
8 TC brake drums.  None are measured yet.  If you want to take a gamble, make an offer.  Or wait a while and I’ll have them measured when I get time (price will go up if they measure good!)

Seat Bottom Cover
Driver’s side (right side) seat bottom cover. Black vinyl, used but in good condition.  This is the cover only. There is no wood or foam, just the vinyl for the top and four sides. $10, or FREE for TC Motoring Guild members.

Connecting Rod
Single rod, no cap. 439 grams. $20

Used Pistons
Various. See photos and make an offer.

TC / TD Water Pump Pulley

TC 3rd Brake Lamp
Vintage aftermarket tail lamp, metal body and plastic lens.  Bracket bolts to stock TC spare wheel carrier and sits behind the spokes of the spare.

TC Front Hubs
(See photo of 4 hubs) Pair of used TC front hubs with Timken tapered bearings. Bearing condition unknown.  Splines look good enough to use, although I never recommend putting brand new wheels on old hubs so if you have new wheels, consider buying brand new hubs. $20 for both hubs with tapered bearings.  (Rear hubs in photo are already sold)

Door and Side Curtain Hardware
See photos. What you see is what you get.  All original parts except for one striker assembly marked Moss Motors.  Looks like a very old repro, maybe from the Al Moss days? Make offer. (SALE PENDING)

TC 0630 For Sale

Mileage: original unknown; Less than 100 since full frame off restoration
Transmission: Manual RWD
Condition: Mint
Exterior: Black
Interior: Red Leather
Asking Price $36,000.00

Located in Columbus, Indiana USA

This MG TC (Chassis # TC0630, built April 1946) received a comprehensive restoration to a high standard of quality and originality in 2015. Nothing was left undone to make this a visual knockout and a great driving car. Just enough miles on the car since restoration to thoroughly debug.

The rebuilt engine (it was a BMC factory replacement) runs smooth and strong with plenty of power. Gearbox shifts crisply. Brakes stop the car smooth and straight. I have personally driven this car and it drives and handles beautifully.

All sheet metal was stripped, repaired, and repainted. Body tub is new, made by Steve Gilbert. Body fit up is very good, and the doors hang and close properly. Chrome has been re-plated. Original steering wheel restored by Ben Cordsen. Gorgeous red leather upholstery (Moss kit) looks great. All gauges and lights work. New Optima battery. New correct top and tonneau cover. Original side curtain frames and kit included (but not completed). Correct, original 48-spoke wire wheels with excellent tires. This TC is ready for the road; drive anywhere in confidence and style.
