BGB 348 was built on the 6th October 1937 and UK registered on the 18th October. Whilst we do not have an early history with the MG, the V5 only records one former keeper up to 26th November 2010. In 2010 the MG was purchased by one of our regular customers in South Yorkshire and during 2011 was part exchanged and in our ownership for the first time. We sold the car immediately on arrival to a local couple who have covered over 1000 miles over the past three years and the MG has come back to us beautifully presented and in strong mechanical condition.
When the MG initially arrived with us in 2011 it appeared to be a nicely aged, honest car that had been restored many years ago. We put the MG through our workshop and carried out some brake re-commissioning, adjusted wheel bearings, greased round as necessary and put the MG through and MOT. We also replaced oils, spark plugs and carried out a general service. The paintwork had lost its shine and the new owners decided to spend several thousand pounds having the car fully stripped down, wings removed, all chrome including the radiator removed and the body prepared and treated to a full professional re-paint at our body and paint facility Malton Coachworks.
The most recent owners were relatively new to classic cars and were keen to purchase a usable pre-war MG that could be used during summer months. The MG has fulfilled the purpose and has been cherished, thoroughly enjoyed and treated to regular local journeys throughout each summer. The MG has proved totally reliable and runs and drives superbly. The MG has a strong correct engine holding excellent oil pressure and the unit has been treated to a rebuild. The gearbox feels tight, the MG brakes and handles correctly and performance is generally very good.
BDG 348 has a very sharp, clean body with an excellent deep, gleaming paint finish and the upholstery was most likely re-trimmed during the 1980'a/1990's and is very smart with excellent seats, door cards and well-presented carpets. The MG comes with an excellent hood and a full set of sidescreens in very good condition. The wood frame was inspected and checked when the MG was stripped down three years ago and was found to be in good, strong condition. The MG has been in dry storage, carefully owned and the frame remains in the same condition several years later.
MG TA's are becoming harder to find and the last time we had a TA in stock was this very car over three years ago. They are highly desirable and this particular cars offers excellent value for a usable, honest and very smartly presented example.
