This example, TB 0566 underwent a complete restoration by a highly regarded marque expert, and is accompanied by a large file of receipts approximately 12 years ago. During the restoration, louvers were added to the bonnet, while otherwise this car remains at stock specifications. Wearing a stunning combination of grey over grey (at a cost of nearly $10,000) this TB still remains as fresh over a decade later.
After restoration was completed, it was then purchased by a longtime prewar collector and vintage racer. This TB was then set up to perform as a competitive yet reliable “drive to the track, race, and drive home example”. It can be raced around Lime Rock Park at approximately 1:25, and remains competitive in its class.
TB 0566 has participated very actively in the VSCCA, and is documented in its log book. A regular participant at hill climbs, including the Hershey Hill Climb (Hershey, PA), Mt. Equinox Hill Climb (Manchester, VT) and the legendary Mt. Washington “Climb to the Clouds” (Gorham, NH) just to name a few. While this TB currently features period correct bucket seats, the original bench seat is included, as is the slightly larger MG steering wheel – replaced with the classic Bluemel’s Brooklands wheel. Full tonneau cover and all weather gear are present, and in very nice condition, as well a nearly complete took kit fitted properly under the bonnet.
Maintained exclusively by one vintage race shop with no expense spared, TB 0566 has been a very enjoyable, and reliable companion to it’s owner for the last decade. Currently riding on period correct Blockley shod 19 inch wire wheels, TB0566 is a turn key prewar racing entrant, and rare addition to any collection.
