Guide price: £38000 - £48000. •    Recently part of the famed Robert "Bob" Koons Collection in the US
•    Expertly prepared for (US) vintage racing and competition
•    Extremely well built with period-correct upgrades and no expense spared
•    Eligible for a host of events and welcome anywhereOffered here is an absolutely stunning MG TC racer that was originally prepared for the late Robert ‘’Bob’’ Koons forming part of his renowned US collection. It was expertly prepared by Robert and Roy Gane; a team that worked for the Penske Racing Team in the glorious 1960s and early 1970s. The work was carried out at Bryn Mawr, PA-based Updraught Enterprises from 2007 until 2009. R&W Enterprises of East Fallowfield, PA built up a competition engine using a later MG TF1500cc block, Carrillo rods, billet crankshaft, forged Arias pistons, and various other vintage speed parts, resulting in 125bhp and 123ft/lbs. at 5,500rpm. The original, matching numbers engine was retained, in case anyone might want to re-install it in the future. A Lucas Laystall head, Vertex Magneto, 1½" SU carburretors, and duel SU fuel pumps were fitted as well.In addition to the performance work, the car was restored cosmetically, with high-quality respray in Woodland Green and a leather interior with exact replica MG competition seats. Throughout the whole process, the intent was to engineer, construct, and finish the little MG to the sort of standards Gane and Koons were renowned for when they worked on Roger Penske's cars. The TC debuted at the U.S. Vintage Grand Prix at Watkins Glen in September 2009 and subsequently has raced successfully at other SVRA events, including the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, New Jersey Motorsports Park, and Pocono International Raceway. Although prepared to US competition regulations it should be possible to convert it to be eligible for UK events or remove the American roll hoop and return it to a road car. Simply lovely.
