1949 MG TC Sells for $490,000

Published 18 January 2015

A 1949 MG TC has sold for for $490,000. Okay, it was Carrol Shelby's first race car, this was Barrett Jackson, Scotsdale Arizona, and as part of the Ron Pratte collection the money was going to charity.

But us folks over in little old England are more used to a £20,000 - £30,000 price range for MG TCs.
