The MG T series was a range of open top roadsters with very little weather protection produced in various models from 1936 to 1955 until being replaced ty the MGA. The earliest of the models, the TA, was built until 1939 with just 3003 produced. Power of 50HP was claimed from the 1,292cc OHV 4 cylinder MPJG engine with twin SU carbs, the transmission was 4 speed with synchromesh on 3rd and 4th gears. Top speed back then was almost 80mph with a 0 – 60 time of 23 seconds, how things have changed.

Sold previously by ourselves, this is a beautifully presented matching numbers RHD home market car with just 4 keepers recorded in the past 40 years. We are delighted to have taken the car back in part exchange and are thrilled to be able to offer the opportunity for the next discerning client who respects top quality.

Finished in gleaming black coachwork with a stunning interior with burgundy red leather, black carpets and a classy wood dashboard it’s difficult to believe the car is 82 years old! A lengthy, top quality, detailed full nut and bolt restoration was completed around 2011 and the car has now nicely settled down and is still of show quality or very usable for those sunny post lockdown days we all look forward to.

The quality of the restoration was obviously second to none with invoices on file for in excess of £38,000 which excludes the price of the car. The majority of the work was carried out by MG Guru Robin Lackford Motor Engineering of West Sussex with the leather interior and trimwork entrusted to well renowned classic restorer and specialist trimmer, Bryan Purves of East Sussex. Along with the huge history file, there are also two additional files full of information showing the great lengths the owner took to source the correct people, parts and knowledge required to restore the car to this exceptional standard.

The vehicle is new into stock and we will add a detailed video and more photos to our website Woldside Classics as soon as time permits. If you are in the market for a TA of this collector quality, please make contact to express interest.
