The MG TA was introduced in 1936 and developed from the PB model. Compared with the PB it was slightly wider and had the 10 HP 1292cc OHV four cylinder engine developing 50 bhp at 4000 rpm. The 1292cc unit was equipped with twin SU carburettors, modified camshaft and manifolding.
This very sound MG TA is excellent mechanically and has benefitted from a light restoration in 2005. A photographic record of the work is with the car showing substantial restoration and improvement work being carried out. The work included some bodywork and mechanical work relating to the rear axle, brakes and suspension. This is a very tidy car that has been sympathetically restored to a good standard. The bodywork and paint are not of a concours standard but as you would expect on a good, usable car that can be improved and detailed further over time. The upholstery has been re-trimmed and presents very well. Full weather equipment is present and the car sits on a good set of painted wires.
The TA is a delight on the road with a strong engine giving very good performance. The car accelerates well with a fit and healthy 1292cc engine. The gearbox is very nice to use and the car sails along gracefully making the car a delight to drive.
