Summer Vacation: ’47 MG TC Supercharged
We had one of these not too long ago. Perhaps you wanted that one and missed it because it sold quickly. Now you have a special opportunity. You can buy this one in the south of France. Imagine a summer vacation driving the roads lined with hedgerows of sage and lavender. You could head over to the Camargue and picnic while the TC sits patiently waiting to head to the next exciting destination and memorable meal. Then you can ship it home, memories intact and put it on eBay. Strike the eBay comment, it is disturbing. A little about these superchargers from TTtypes.org: The superchargers originally offered for the XPAG engines fell into two basic categories: “Roots” pump type superchargers such as Marshall- Nordec, Wade and SCoT and concentric compressors, such as the Shorrock, Arnott and Judson. These two different type superchargers achieve the same result of pressurizing the intake system of the engine, but go about in two different manners. The Roots design is an air pump; it makes no pressure internally in the supercharger, but pumps the manifold with fuel and air faster than the engine can ordinarily consume it, creating pressure in the intake tract. The concentric superchargers trap a volume of air and then internally compress it before releasing it into the inlet tract. This really lovely car not only has the Shorrock version, but it also has the Alfin brakes and big Lucas cat-eye headlamps. These are very simple cars and support for them is global. So you should have no worries on vacation. Just bring a few spares along. See the eBay listing and book your flight by clicking here.
