The TA was the first of a line of T series MG cars to span two
eras of pre and postwar motoring. There were to be five 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 whilst
the roomier body and improved and more comprehensive weather
equipment made the car altogether a more exciting prospect for
touring. Unlike many of its predecessors. the TA was only available
as a two-seater. and the car remained virtually unchanged
throughout its production life.

Registered in 1938. this MG TA was originally registered to
Lancaster Police Department and is mentioned in the book 'MG's On
Patrol'. After completing its life in the Police force. this MG was
purchased by a Canadian who was studying in the UK; when he
returned to Canada he loved the car so much he shipped it back with
him. In 1970 the car was purchased by an American and underwent a
light restoration - he then kept the MG until 2013. This handsome
car eventually found its way back to the UK shores. where it has
created substantial interest; ex-Police cars are always highly
sought after and one that is 78 years old is rare and highly
desirable. This MG. finished in black with red trim. comes supplied
with a V5 registration document together with some spares and tools
and we are advised by the vendor she drives with no known faults.
