This car was purchased as a "basket case" in December 2007 after having lain "in limbo" for over 25 years in the hands of several would-be restorers.
Nearly 2 years of constant work has seen the car progress from a pile of rusted bits to a driveable machine. I have executed the majority of the work aside from the use of some specialists for machining, welding, upholstery fitting and panel refurbishment.  Parts have been supplied by Sportsparts and Heritage MG in Sydney as well as Moss Motors, Abingdon Spares and Doug Pelton's fromtheframeup in the USA. Bruce Smith from Sportsparts and Doug Pelton have been particularly helpful with advice on originality. Many thanks chaps.
Since this photo was taken on 30th August 2009, the weather hood and sidescreens have been completed. The rear wings have been trial-fitted and, along with the front wings, running boards, engine hood (bonnet) and valence are in the paint shop under the care of Ron Taylor. All being well the TC should be registered in early January 2010. A period white-on black number plate, HN 681, will be used as this was the number on my paternal grandfather's 1949 Ford Prefect sedan.
TC 7346 was built on December 9, 1948 and arrived in Sydney on the SS Northumberland on March 4, 1949. She was sold to a Mr. Williamson on March 24.
We have won first place awards for "Cars in restoration" in two successive MG CC (NSW) Concours d'Elegance/Display days in 2008 and 2009.
On completion I plan to produce a hard-cover book on the restoration. This will feature many full-colour photographs with captions. I expect it will be about 40 pages in A4 size.
The car will be available for weddings and TV/film production.
