Kay Einhorn’s TC For Sale

After 43 wonderful years of owning my cherished TC, I regrettably have to part with it. Unfortunately my eyesight will not allow me to drive it anymore. As much as I absolutely hate to part with it I know just having it sit here and not be driven is not a good idea. It would be painful to see it every day and not be able to take it for a spin.

My 1949 TC was restored by Mike Goodman from the frame up in 1978 and as I said, I have had a great 43 years of enjoyment from owning it.  The car was maintained for decades by Mike and since then by two other mechanics. It has a 5 speed transmission and steering box that Mike put in from Australian Datsun parts.  The engine is a Gold Seal engine that was completely rebuilt and then installed in 2018 and only has 250 miles on it. You may remember that I bought the motor from Gene Roth and Malcolm installed it. It starts right up and runs fine. The top and side curtains are in fine condition.  Even though the license plate says “IT LEAKS” I have looked at where it is sitting now and there is hardly any oil on the cardboard mat.

I want to find a good home for it so the new owner will be able to get the same enjoyment from it that I have had for the past 43 years.

MG TC For Sale

After 33 fond years, Mimi and I realized our ’48 TC isn’t getting too old for us:  we’re getting too old for it.

It’s not a show car, it’s a venerable driver (original factory black paint) but with redone interior and top by Joe Namnam (Jaguar biscuit leather) and matching carpets by Little John, new chrome, rebuilt wheels (stainless spokes, powder coated silver-grey rims and hubs) with five new Blockley tyers.  It’s cosmetic appearance is top-notch, (except for weathered driver’s door and bonnet top).

In order to keep up with today’s traffic, I built a second engine: late parts, bored and sleeved to 1500 cc. reusing only the original crank and rods (the testing lab said they’re fine).  With 9:1 compression, a stock late cam and many improvements to reduce parasite drag, and to improve safety (Datsun 240z alfin drums.) It is quite quick.

Included are the original engine parts, MG manuals, and onboard tools.  $29,000 fob Newport Beach

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

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

Distributor Plates
Five original distributor plates to fit XPAG distributors.  All are untested but these original condensers seem to last forever. Three are complete with points, condenser, hardware and insulating block at $15 each.  One is missing the insulating block and some screws at $10.  One is plate and condenser only at $5.

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.

One clutch disc is rebuilt.  Plates and discs are both original and Borg & Beck parts.  Two date stamps visible are 1966 and 1968.  You can specify if you want a particular unit.  Extra pressure plate has two thrust plates with it but no springs to clip one on.  Surfaces of pressure plates have some surface rust which should be easy to clean up.  Wear varies from minor to normal.  I don’t know anything more than this so plan to have them rebuilt.  Price is $50 per assembly.  Extra pressure plate is $25.  Or corner the market on TC clutches and take everything for $200.

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

Used Pistons
Various. See photos and make an offer.

Gearbox Mounts
Rubber is deteriorating but could be replaced if you know how. $5.
