We are very pleased to offer for sale this super example of the highly desirable pre-war TA Midget. This car was first registered in October 1938 and comes with a comprehensive history file, which includes a photograph album charting its complete restoration over a 26 year period from 1974 to 2000. Originally finished in Saxe Blue (in our opinion not the best colour for a T Type), it was repainted during its restoration in the current, more attractive colour scheme which is reminiscent of the earlier pre-war MGs. The restoration work carried out was extensive, including a total strip-down, new body tub and rebuild of all mechanicals to include engine and gearbox rebuild. A new wiring loom was fitted. Much of this work was carried out by a well-known MG restorer, Andy King and the beautiful, mostly leather interior was provided by Collingburn. The car remains in excellent condition including paintwork, interior and underside. The bespoke canvas hood, side screens, and full and half tonneau covers are pretty much like new. The spoked wheels are in good condition. All the dials are correct and seem to be working (not sure about the clock) and there is even the original reserve petrol switch, slow running cable and fully fitted tool box. The doors on this car do fit very well. Driving this car is great fun, with an easy start-up, nice gearbox and clutch, and good brakes for a pre-war car. The large file of paperwork includes V5C and continuation book, along with a useful lubrication chart, wiring diagram etc.
