Beschreibung

Registration Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: TA 1779
The MG Midgets originated with the 847cc M-Type in 1928 and progressed to the 939cc PB in 1936, all fitted with an overhead camshaft engine, and with the power output doubling during this period. The TA appeared in July 1936; it kept the slab tank, folding windscreen and cut-away doors which had been popularised by the J2 and its successors, but there were several major changes. These included fitting a 1292cc pushrod overhead valve engine based on that of the then current Morris 10, lengthening the wheelbase by nearly 7", and replacing the cable brakes with hydraulics, which reduced the diameter of the drums from 12" to 9". The cars turned out to be more comfortable and practical than their predecessors, as well as being faster and handling better - tuned versions were lapping Brooklands at well over 90 m.p.h. Around 3,000 TA‘s were made before they were followed by the 1250cc TB in 1939. This was almost identical,
