It’s not very often we get an MG TB in the shop. Let us rephrase that: this is the first one! At first glance it looks like an MG TC, but on close inspection it’s a very different animal. The TB shared the body and chassis of a TA, but sported the same XPAG engine that was found in the TC. Very few of the TBs were produced because production started in mid-1939 but was quickly brought to an end due to the start of the Second World War. It is said that only 379 cars were ever built, with only fifty surviving to this day—making it the rarest of the T Series MGs.
This particular TB is very well restored and finished in a gorgeous color combo. It’s been sitting for some time and has been brought in for us to once again make it roadworthy. In addition to the TB, we currently have a 1938 MG TA and a 1948 MG TC in the shop, so it’s really cool to be able to compare the three models and see all of the slight differences with our own eyes. We’ve always got rare and interesting cars coming through the doors, so be sure to check back to see all these beauties we’re privileged to get our hands on.
