This is a 1948 MGTC with a good clear title. The car was used for road rallys for a long time so way back it had some changes made to it like a V-8 ford flathead 8 60hp with dual carbs and aluminum  intake. offenhauser finned heads. ford aluminum oil pan. a racing windshield only and a custom ford radiator. The motor is out and apart as it had cracks in the water jacket and was welded but never put back together. clutch. flywheel. and misc. other parts are there. The steering seems good. the tires are bad. the gauges are good and clear and the interior is still real leather and in fair shape. the left fender has 2 dents in it and the hood has 2 small dings near the front. the radiator chrome cover has a ding in it on the top pass side. hood only has the top pieces not the sides. The firewall is great but the dash needs new wood as it is showing wear. Frame is great as the wood is also. I blasted this and put no filler into it as I wanted all to see how clean it is and not all filler. It has its good and bad points but is a barn find and would make a great roadster. I even sandblasted the 48 spoke wire wheels on both sides so they are ready to paint. The rt. headlight has surface rust and needs to be refinished but the left is nice. I am supposed to have the front bumper this week and will come with it if I do get it. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have if you email me. ask all you need to as I want whom ever buys this to be happy. I hope I covered everything but most likely forgot something.
