Pre-war MG Midgets had proved immensely popular, thanks to low sale prices and running costs and their effectiveness for amateur use in virtually any area of motor sport. Indeed, this was a trend that was true of the Midget right up until the 1960s and ’70s. The first samples were built in the late 1930s and were the ‘TA’ and ‘TB’ models. MG’s first post-war sports two-seater was the ‘TC’, basically a mildly updated version of the limited production ‘TB’.
Being very popular to collectors was acquired by the Museum through auction in Great Britain.
