1937 MG TA Special with 14hp Honet engine For Sale

History of this car as reported: MG TA, 1937, brought to Austria by a British army officer in the 1940s. (Officially registered in Austria in 1948) Between 1945 and 1955 British troops were stationed in Parts of Austria The car was left back in Austria and became the first racing car of the young Erich Breinsberg. He raced in a few hill climb competitions, after the engine broke, he replaced it with a Triumph mechanic and raced again, but he later focused on small formela series, where he was successful driver in the late 1960s. Breinsberg won the Formula V Europe-Championship, the Austrian Championship and raced and won the Europe Gold Championship as well in Formula Super V and the Trans Atlantic Challenge in Daytona/USA In his last years, he drove since 1967 in the racing team of Kurt Bergmann together with Dieter Quester (who focused on the European Touring Car Championship and won it in 1969, later formula 1 Driver), Helmut Marko (won Le Mans in 1971) and Niki Lauda. In 1969 he won the Austrian Formula Car Championship ahead of the almost 9 years younger newcomer Niki Lauda. In a time were his teammates became successful at international races, Breinsberg, also a generation of racing drivers older, retired from his active motorsport career, because of his wife, the daughter of LIEWERS, the biggest Austrian Volkswagen Dealer and worked there in the following years as CEO. This TA was bought from "AUTOHAUS LIEWERS" in the year 1991. Has got complete Austrian registration papers and a copy from the vehicle department of Vienna with the deregistration (probably to avoid taxes and insurance) from Erich Breinsberg dated 6. Aug. 1965. 2015 I bought this car (bits and pieces) via Darren Goodgame from Brooklands Bodycraft, and assigned Darren the Job of rebuilding the car to my and his ideas. The job of Rebuilding the engine was assigned to John Seeber, who is very well known. The engine was completeley stripped, ballanced and built up new from scratch. Exact details will be available soon. The Axles and Frame where sandblasted and repainted with a rustproof coating and then painted in black. Over 2015 the car was rebuilt as you can see the different stages documented in the enclosed pictures. At this very moment the car is being prepared for registration in Germany and gets a Tourneau cover tailored to it. It will be ready and road registered beginning of April. If you have any further questions give me a call, or e mail me. The car is currently in England and can be viewed there anytime.
