The MG TA Midget replaced the PB in 1936; it was an evolution of its predecessor and was 3 inches wider in its track at 45 inches and 7 inches longer in its wheelbase at 94 inches. The 1292 cc engine fitted was the Overhead Valve unit from the Wolseley 10; but with twin SU carburettors plus modified camshaft and manifolds consequently the power output was 50 bhp at 4,500 rpm, whilst the four-speed gearbox now had Synchromesh on the two top ratios.
The new T-type was capable of reaching almost 80 mph in standard tune with a 0 to 60 mph time of 23.1 seconds.
In 1936 it cost £222 on the home market; 3,003 were made.
Our 1936 example chassis number TA 0291, engine number MPJM 39011, presented in Teal Blue with Tan weather gear and interior has been extensively rebuilt by the previous and current owner. In 2005 the body was fully rebuilt with a new ash frame and re-sprayed in this very attractive current colour. In 2013, the engine was rebuilt by Colin Groom, with a new crankshaft at a total cost of over £7,000. The rebuild has two files of receipts and notes with photographs the first having receipts and information from 1966 to the present day, and the other covering the engine rebuild.
