The TC was announced within five weeks of the end of WWII. The newcomer featured the familiar dual-cowl dashboard, fold-flat windscreen, cutaway doors, swept wings and rear mounted spare wheel of its predecessor. The major change was the welcome 4in increase in the width of the cockpit. Other refinements included: improved sidescreens, the replacement of the twin six volt batteries with a bulkhead-mounted 12 volt one. Power came from MG's proven 1250cc OHV XPAG unit, a slight rise in compression ratio lifting output to 54.4bhp and raising the top speed to almost 80mph. Though only available in RHD, it was exported worldwide, with exactly 10,000 examples produced before the model was replaced by the TD in 1950.
