This lovely MG is one of the earliest TCs, having rolled off the production line on the 22nd July 1946 and registered for the road only 4 days later to it’s first proud owner on the 26th July.

A super little car, finished in black with apple green leather upholstery. It drives beautifully through it’s XPAG 1250cc engine with twin SUs mated to a 4 speed gearbox with synchromesh on 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

She comes with full weather equipment, the chrome luggage rack (not fitted), and indicators for modern driving. Further enhancements include a smaller Bluemels steering wheel (original included) and the superior steering rack which gives 2 turns lock to lock which makes the steering light and precise.

FTX 495 is also famous, or infamous, as being the first car towed off the newly opened M1 in 1959, as shown in an accompanying picture!

A comprehensive file containing many invoices for parts acquired during the rebuild plus a pictorial record are included with the car.

60 miles an hour is maintainable with ease and with brakes to match, this is just a great car to drive and enjoy when Summer finally arrives.
