On December 10, 1945 R.W. Hearns bought TC 1882 from University Motors Ltd., Stratton House, 80 Piccadilly, London W1 for his daughter Joan. She had the car shipped to New Zealand after the war and it was instrumental in her meeting and marrying the father of Jeremy Kidd who provided this provenance.

The car was raced in New Zealand and Australia before it found its way to America.

T-ABC member Gene Wescott then purchased the car. Gene was living in Alaska, but trying to restore the TC in California. He was part-way in the process of restoring the TC to its original condition when he sold it to T-ABC member Art Ludwick.

With the help of T-ABC member Mike Goodman, the restoration project was completed. Included in the restoration was a decision to change the color of the TC from Red to British Racing Green.

The TC was then named "Green Limey" and so it will remain. California vanity license is "TC 46 MG". The new keeper and preserver of the breed is T-ABC member Ron Wong, a fourth generation Californian who had driven his old TC at USC and then had it shipped to Japan for two years service when he was a Captain in the USAF and creator of the first pediatric dental clinic in Asia.
