Feedback from the important American market led MG to develop this special model for sale to the U.S. Beginning with car number 7380 in December 1948 and produced "as needed" throughout 1949 only 494 were produced -- less than 5% of all MG TC production.
Such cars were recognized under the coding "EXU" (for export unit) and stamped "EXU" on the chassis number on the guarantee plate.
The MG TC featured here is finished in beautiful Sequoia Cream with a gorgeous green leather interior and tan convertible top. After 42 years in storage, this car was fully restored with no expense spared by Marquis Specialists Napa Valley restoration. Was shown at many Concours d'Elegance and recipient of multiple awards. Just released from nearly 70 years of single collector ownership. Most recently the car was fitted with brand new Chrome wheels, brand new tires, a 5 speed transmission, all new brakes, gorgeous burled walnut dash and much more! Absolutely spectacular!
