The History
The T-Type is a car produced by Morris Garages from 1936 to 1955 in the TA, TB, TC, TD and TF Midget models.
The T-Types were sports cars with separate chassis, front engine, four-speed gearbox and rear-wheel drive.
When the TA Midget was unveiled, it replaced the PB model with substantial modifications such as the Wolseley head valve thruster with modified camshaft and ducts and a double-body carburetor. It had a displacement of 1,292 cm³ and output power of 50 hp at 4,500 rpm.
The four-speed manual gearbox had the two highest gears synchronized and there were also hydraulic brakes with 230 mm drums.
Much TA came out of the house with open roadster bodywork, two doors and ash wood frame with sofa seats and, behind them, a space was created for the transport of the cargo.
In 1938, the two-port convertible version was introduced.
Produced in 252 pieces, it had more luxurious features than those of the roadster.
The capote had three different positions: fully open, fully closed and open only above the seats. The latter were singles, and there was a whole set of mats. The vehicles were supplied with a small body part mounted on the chassis so that the Newport Pagnell coachman could complete the car. Coupe models were also produced over the years.
The model, in the standard version, reached 130 kph of maximum speed and had an acceleration of 0 to 97 km/h in 23.1 seconds.
When the model was introduced, it was called the T-Type, and only after the advent of TB was it called TA.
