The TC Midget was the first postwar MG, launched in 1945.
It was quite similar to the pre-war TB, sharing the same pushrod- OHV engine with a slightly higher compression ratio of 7.4:1 giving 54.5 bhp (40.6 kW) at 5200 rpm but using more modern interior elements allowing a wider cockpit. The makers also provided several alternative stages of tuning for "specific purposes". It was exported to the United States, even though only ever built in right-hand drive. The export version had slightly smaller US specification sealed-beam head lights and larger twin rear lights, as well as turn signals and chrome-plated front and rear bumpers. The tachometer was directly in front of the driver, while the speedometer was on the other side of the dash in front of the passenger. Exactly 10,000 were produced, from September 1945 (chassis number TC0251) to Nov. 1949 (chassis number TC10252), a larger number than any previous MG model. It cost £527 on the home market in 1947. The engine was a 4-cylinder 1250cc(76.27CID) OHV engine that produced 54 hp and got 28mpg. O-60 time was a slow 22.7 seconds.
Released by Monogram in 1977.
