MG TC Technical Data and Resource Library
As I gather literature and other resources for my MG TC, I like to share them electronically whenever possible to assist other TC owners and those who just have an interest in these beautiful cars.  I've done this quite successfully for the Centaur Motor Scooters.  To view any of the resources, click on the link.  To Save a resource, right-click it and use the 'Save As' option.
The MG TC Provenance List (CLICK HERE) - (Updated 07/16/2022) An unofficial directory of MG TCs by serial number gleaned from various published club rosters, magazines, advertisements, and  Internet sites.  Updated sporadically as new information comes available. No contact information is provided, only the data source year, general location by state or country, owner name where available, engine number, color(s), and any special notes.
The Red Car -by Don Stanford: illustrations by by George Tricoglou and Alan Hicks.  The original 1954 publication had 15 illustrations which were dropped in later editions of the book.  Here they are all scanned from a 1954 edition I bought at a book sale as a kid back in the 1960s.
