Lot Number: 238
Estimate: No Reserve
  • V5 Present

This MG TC was built into a race car in 1985, raced for a few years before being acquired by the vendor in 1991. From 1991 to 1998 it was used for both sprints and hill‑climbs as well as being road legal. In 1999 it was returned to racing and continually competed through to 2017, although has remained unused since.  It is currently set‑up for sprint/hill‑climbing with a Ford Type 9, 5 speed gearbox. It comes with a TC 'box, but this requires rebuilding as it jumps out of second gear, and matching propshaft. The engine is supercharged via an M45 Eaton making it tractable from low revs. A full, detailed mechanical description is available. The history file includes an extensive quantity of invoices dating from 1996 to the present, 1991 bill of sale, various photos and a few MoTs dating between 1994 and 2001 and one in 2011 when last issued.
