Caroline Writes:
This charming and classic 1948 MG TC open two-seat Roadster benefits from a comprehensive restoration performed by renowned British car restorer Jason Len of XK’s Unlimited fame, and less than 250 miles have been recorded since the work was completed in 2014. Len finished the MG in the appropriate British Racing Green exterior color seen on the car today, with a neatly contrasting Olive-Green touch on both sides, while the interior was trimmed in a matching green color. A period-appropriate Supercharger was fitted to the XPAG 1,250cc engine. Although, it is not the original engine for the car and an oil cooler was fitted to keep things cool. The original-type fold-down windscreen is in place with Brooklands racing windscreens in situ just behind, and a black convertible top and tonneau cover is fitted, along with twin rear-mounted spare wheels. Inside the cockpit, the wood trimmed dashboard features the stunning TC green/grey instruments, and appropriate switchgear. Everywhere you look the level of detail in Jason Len’s work is apparent, with stunning chrome and brightwork, a neatly detailed engine compartment, and photos on file of the undercarriage reveal an equally well-detailed chassis and running gear. These nimble, well-handling MG sports cars are excellent for Sunday drives on twisty backroads and remain the classic MG T-Series icon which helped spark many sports car and racing drivers’ interest in going fast on four wheels. With a restoration of this level and a Supercharger fitted, this example stands out and deserves serious consideration.

My husband owns a 1959 MGA that he has owned since he was 13. He did the restoration himself as a child in Denmark, but has been in the US for about 20 years now.
