- Wonderful and rare MG TC, this well-known TC has been object of a fastidious and fantastic restoration and it's for sure one of the most prestigious example of the 10,000 cars ever built in the world: in our opinion this is the best example in the southern hemisphere let alone New Zealand! The car is a matching number and matching color example in an exclusive clipper blue livery, that has been delivered in only a few examples in 1949. The car is excellent, ready to drive and complete of a marvelous interior. Simply spectacular!
- The MG TA Midget appeared in the spring of 1936 as a replacement for the MG PB. It featured many components borrowed from Morris. Channel sections replaced the tubular cross-members making the vehicles ride more comfortable. The suspension was provided by leaf springs and beam-axle in the front and rear. The brakes were hydraulically operated drums, a first for MG. The body shell was assembled around the MG traditional way of using a wooden frame. All this added up to a total weight of 1, 765 pounds.
- A 1292 cc, overhead-valve, pushrod, four-cylinder engine was placed in the front and powered the rear wheels. Outfitted with dual horizontal SU carburetors, the engine produced 50 horsepower. The four-speed manual gearbox was synchromesh, another first for MG.
- When first introduced, the two-seater vehicle could be purchased in open and closed configuration. Later, the open coupe, referred to as an Airline Coupe, was replaced with a Drophead style. The Drophead used a soft-top that could open and close depending on the driver and the weather conditions.
- In 1939 World War II was beginning. MG was introducing its latest vehicle, the TB Midget. It was basically the same as the TA, but was equipped with a larger, 1250cc, engine. The four-cylinder over-head valve, XPAG power plant was borrowed from the new Morris 10. It produced 45 horsepower and was much more reliable than its predecessor. When the war began, production ceased. MG shifted its focus to creating equipment for military purposes.
- The TC Midget was very successful. During its four year production run, lasting from 1945 through 1949.
