1999 MG TC
Gulfport, MS, 39503
Engine: 4 cyl.
Drive Type: RWD
The history takes up from the previous owner (deceased many years ago) based on info from his daughter.
Car was purchased out of Texas in mid to late 50s by Mr. Ohr in Laurel,MS.
Was driven by his daughter in high school during that period
Some years later a restoration was started . Mr Ohr became ill and car was put in dry storage. It remained in dry storage for some 30 years or more when I purchased about 5-6 years ago from daughter.
When purchased car had excellent paint, interior fair, flat tires and of course not running.
I stored for about 3-4 years when I moved it to local import shop- Rebuilt carbs, new wiring harness, new lamps front and rear, new tires, fuel pump, plugs and wires,new floor boards, gear box cover, new spin on oil filter kit
Garage rebuilt carbs, changed oil, etc before trying to crank- Once this done engine fired right off and has not been touched to this day- Runs excellent (40+-) oil pressure
The interesting part pf the history
Chassis is TC 6210 and engine is XPAG 7099
Interesting is that the id plates identify the car as TC/EXU/7576. TC 7576 is actually Dan Leonard’s TC racer .I’ll attach an article on that. Through research it shows that the original owner of 7576 took off all the sheet metal, chrome, instruments, etc to build a racing body for TC 7576. Somehow that equipment made it to TC 6210
