I bought the TC in 2021 from a woman who saw my 1967 MGB GT in a parking lot.  She dropped a note in the window of the GT asking if I knew anybody that would be interested in a TC.  Her husband had purchased the TC in South Carolina, but had passed before even getting to drive the car.  She kept the car about a year before I met her.
 
Previous owners that I know about is one from PA, where much of the restoration work was done over several years.  Best I can tell from some old photos included in documents file I was given was the car was originally burgundy.  I can’t discern the interior color from any of the pictures although it appears from the wear on the seats they may be original, while I doubt the top (hood) and side screens are.  I have some sense the PA owner that did the restoration work may have been a prominent “TC club” person at the time.
 
From PA, there were two owners in South Carolina, one is the husband purchased the car from and previous to that was Bob Lane from Charleston, SC.

I have done mostly routine service, safety work on the car over the last year, since my purchase intending to maintain the condition as I obtained it, stored/original vehicle.
