The MG TA was the first of a line T series MG cars that covered 2 periods of pre and post war motoring. The TA was only available in 2 seater form and remained virtually unchanged throughout it's short production. From its launch in 1936 to its demise in 1939 just 3,003 examples were built.
The quite exceptional example we offer for sale here came off the Abingdon production line on the 14th of September 1936 and would appear to be the 323rd TA built. The car was then first registered in Doncaster on the 13th of November the same year and still carries it's original registration number. Previously owned and restored by a well known MG car club luminary and scribe. The extensive history file contains an article written by him outlining the car's expensive rebuild, including photographs and copy invoices. The history file also contains a list of previous owners, some listed in a 'buff' log book that goes back to 1954.
The car was built to be driver friendly.It has been fitted with the later MG XPAW engine, rebuilt by MG Guru Peter Edney and type 9 five speed gearbox.The steering box has been replaced with a VW unit. The head lamps have been replaced with 7'' tripod halogens and the flashers upgraded to include new units in the sidelamps. The brake cylinders were re-sleeved with stainless steel inserts and a new master cylinder together with new brake linings all round. At the same time the dynamo and starter motor were rebuilt and a new fuel pump installed. The interior was treated to new trim, at the same time all new weather was purchased which includes a new hood, new half tonneau and new sidescreens. All this work was carried out between 2002 and 2010.
To sum up, here is an opportunity to acquire a superb example of pre war British Automobile engineering with superb provenance and modern upgrades. I really defy anybody to find a better example.
