Description

The TC Midget was the first postwar MG model. It was quite similar to the TB, and shared nearly the same inline four-cylinder engine with 1,250 cm displacement and overhead valves. The main difference was the increase in compression ratio to 7.4: 1, which resulted in a power development equal to 54.5 hp at 5,200 rpm. Many specimens were modified to suit the customer's needs. It was only produced with a single body type, a two-door roadster.

The TC was also exported to the United States. These models had modified headlights and chrome bumpers.

The car body was about 100mm wider than that of the TB to provide more space in the passenger compartment. The length was the same. The tachometer was installed in front of the driver, while the speedometer was positioned on the other side of the dashboard, in front of the passenger.

Exactly 10,000 were produced from September 1945 to November 1949, the highest number of any previous MG model. The TC cost £ 527 in 1947. The model accelerated from 0 to 97 km / h in 22.7 seconds, and this was a very respectable performance for the time
