This 1936 MG TA has just emerged from a comprehensive chassis up rebuild. The car had been stored in a barn for over 40 years prior to this. The restoration has included a good upgrade which is an XPAG engine that has been fully rebuilt although the original engine block will come with the car. The full list of works includes the following:

All body panels blasted, primed and painted

Front brakes renewed, rear brakes overhauled

New brake master cylinder

Kings pins and rear trunnion bushes renewed

New tyres and tubes

Radiator re-cored with all new hoses

Chromework re-chromed where needed

Engine re-sleeved, re bored, new pistons, crankshaft re-ground with new bearings, cylinder head overhauled

Fast road cam fitted

Stainless steel exhaust fitted

New wiring loom

All instruments overhauled

New interior trim and new carpets

New hood, sidescreens, new frame and fixings

New clutch drive plate - a later MG TD gearbox has been fitted which is all synchro.

New ignition system and light switches

New road wheel spinners

New petrol tank straps and rubbers

New wood as required, floor boards, rear panel and storage panel

New battery and isolator switch

New instrument mounting panel

Direction indicators fitted

Dynamator fitted.

As you can see the list is very comprehensive and the total cost of the restoration has come to a little under £20k and that does not include a large element of labour. There is also the useful upgrade of a Dynamator which is effectively an alternator packaged as a Dynamo.

The end result as the pictures will show is a lovely looking MG TA in a very attractive colour combination of black with red leather. The car runs and drives as it should and provides a lively performance with the fast road cam that has been fitted.

The history files contains a thick pile of invoices relating to the restoration. The car is the perfect way to start a summer of motoring.
