The TA was to be the first of a line of T series MG cars that spanned two eras of pre- and post-war motoring. There were to be six models in all; A-F, and they were the last of the traditional MG sports cars. The new TA was longer and wider than its predecessor, the P-Type Midget, the car was also much more comfortable and roomier and had the luxury of hydraulic brakes. The quality and straightforward design soon won over the stalwart overhead camshaft brigade as the TA had kept all the most desirable features and the larger engine provided much more pulling power throughout the range. This ensured that the car held its own in competition and the roomier body and improved and more comprehensive weather equipment made the car altogether a more exciting prospect for touring. The TA was only available as a two-seater, unlike many of its predecessors, and the car remained virtually unchanged throughout its production life.

This example was first registered on 7th July 1937 and is presented in good condition throughout. The dark red coachwork is in very good order as is the interior which presents very well. Acquired by our vendor in 2021 he has used the car primarily during the summer months and maintained this MG where necessary. Maintained regardless of cost, this example comes complete with a history file containing the V5C Registration document, sundry bills, and maintenance records. A wonderful example which is ready to be enjoyed by its new custodian.
