1947 MG TC - £37,500

A matching numbers 1947 MG TC in excellent condition throughout. A car for the purists, it's a time-warp with a known history from day one.

The car was fully restored in the 1980s and has been used very sparingly since, we believe it has only covered just over 3000 miles and has not been used in the wet. There is an extensive file with the car detailing the work. The paintwork and leather are in great condition.

This car is chassis number TC3841 and is very correct in detail. It has the correct engine and bulkhead colour (these were matched to the original factory paint), all original panels, an original horn, headlamp lenses, dynamo (dated 47), regulator (dated 47) and FT27 fog lamp (Lucas).

In the last year the car has also benefitted from a new hood, new stainless brake master cylinder, bronze wheel cylinders and an upgraded Volkswagen steering kit (original box also included). The car is sold with a UK V5 and I can assist with delivery.

1949 MG TC - Sold STC

The previous owner had the car from 1966 and kept a record of all maintenance during his ownership. The engine has been rebuilt to stage 2 with ~2000 miles since. The car was restored and then dry stored, hardly being used.

A new ash frame from Toulmins has been fitted. For some reason he never fitted the doors but all the parts are there (hinges, locks etc.) and we've sent them away to be skinned.

The original air filter assembly, D-lamps, hood frame and sidescreens (currently trimmed in vinyl) are with the car as well as a set of homemade trim panels. There is also a new canvas hood with it.

The car drives, steers and brakes very well and everything works. The body, chassis and panels are in excellent condition. You could use the car as it is or make improvements as you like. It would be an easy restoration project. Sold with UK V5 & old buff log book.

1937 MG TA - Sold STC

1937 MG TA which has been upgraded with an XPAG (TB, TC) engine and gearbox. The car was originally restored with a new ash frame & we have done further work to improve the car.

The engine was rebuilt by Peter Edney MG (2016) and has covered less than 500 miles since. She is sitting on new MWS wheels with Blockley tyres. She's ready to go, drive her home.

UK car sold with it's original registration, old buff log book & V5 all present.

Here are some of the cars that we have recently sold:

1936 MG TA - Sold

This rare, original MG TA was last on the road in the late 1970s. You don't see many UK cars for restoration. She has also retained her original registration number which is on a V5 (and there is a buff log book with the car).

Chassis appears to be in good condition, all of the braking system is complete (including all the bits you can't buy). The axles, springs, fittings etc. are all there. She has her headlamps, sidelights, horn, regulator, lots of items not yet photographed.

She is fitted with an MPJM engine (same as original) appears to be in good condition, no obvious cracks or frost damage (as is common) and the original gearbox/remote are with the car.

There's a few small items missing, most notable are the rev counter & shock absorbers (which have been replaced by telescopics). Considering she's 80 years old, it's not a lot! I can help you to source replacements and guide you through the restoration process.

1954 MG TF1500 - Sold

A driving MG TF 1500 (with the correct XPEG engine) restoration project. We've driven it on a private road and everything seems to work as it should but it all needs checking over.

The car was bought by Mrs Hudson in 1957 for the sum of $1695, she spent a further $100 at the time having it repainted red from it's original dove grey. It still has it's original handbook and bill of sale.

She is 100% complete, any small items that have been removed are boxed and with the car. We're currently organising the paperwork for the car, she will be sold with UK V5.

1939 MG TB - Sold

A rare opportunity to buy one of the most desirable pre-war MGs, this is a numbers matching UK car with her original registration.

Only 379 MG TBs were made before the outbreak of war in 1939. It's a fantastic combination of TA handling and TC reliability, a very usable car. This is the first numbers matching TB I've owned!

She is eligible for both VSCC events and the prestigious Mille Miglia. A TB has also recently won the Flying Scotsman rally and the HERO 1000 mile trial.

This car has been restored by it's previous owner but would now benefit from cosmetic attention. Everything works but the wiring is a bit untidy. We will be fitting a period correct FT27 foglamp. The panel fit and body tub are excellent and she drives beautifully.



MG TB, Steve Baker MG

1939 MG TB - Sold

My own personal race car which I have restored over a long period with no expense spared. Fewer than 400 TBs were made and it's especially rare to retain the original registration. She also has FIVA papers in my name.

A TB won this year's flying Scotsman rally as well as the RAC 1000 mile trial - they can also regularly be seen in the Mille Miglia. She left the factory with a Tickford body fitted but this was sadly beyond repair when I acquired the car. I love building specials and so I decided to make something a bit different. A friend of mine made the bodywork for the restoration of K3001 and I asked him if he could make me the same for my TB. This car is the result.

Please enquire for full details and photographs.

1947 MG TC - Sold

A rare opportunity to acquire a matching numbers MG TC for restoration.

This car appears to have never been down to a blank chassis, as all of the original clips are present and where you'd expect to find them.

It is a very complete car with a number of original parts including all four shock absorbers, 8" L140 headlamps and a complete set of gauges.

All panels are with the car and all can be salvaged. It will need a new ash frame (i.e. body tub) but I can put you in touch with a supplier.

It's best to call if you're interested, it's just too much to try to write down. We can assist you with delivery.

1954 MG TF - Sold

Here we have a numbers matching, UK, MG TF restoration project sold with her original registration (we have an old buff log book and V5). We believe the car was originally supplied to Lancashire police force. The gentleman from whom we purchased the car had her over 50 years.

An extremely original car, as far as I can tell only the air filters are missing (or maybe they were removed for performance?). It has survived well, the gauges are spot on, the engine turns freely and the chassis looks to be in great condition.

The body tub has been replaced with a restored original which can be used as is but the doors will need to be fitted. All panels are with the car and in good condition, one front wing needs a repair to the rear. There are also a pair of new running boards with the car (not photographed).

1948 MG TC - Sold

A stunning TC which has been rebuilt to a very high standard. The car is "numbers matching" and has covered less than 12,000 miles since total restoration.

She has kept nearly all original parts, the panel fit is exceptional (especially for a TC!) and the doors fit beautifully. Has the correct shock absorbers, air filter, gauges, original engine and gearbox.

The car is totally correct in detail apart from additional period correct gauges (e.g. oil & water temperature), lights added for rear indicators and the grab handle. The car has an interesting history, you may also recognise her from the cover of the Moss parts catalogue.

Recently she has benefited from 5 new wheels, a rebuilt differential, upgraded steering box and a new hood and tonneau cover. Drives beautifully and is "ready to go". Sold with 12 months MOT and fresh service.

n.b. I should point out that there was a spot of dust on my camera lens when I photographed the car. I will take more in due course.

1946 MG TC - Sold

I don't often describe a car as concours but this one really stands out. We haven't sold a better TC.

It is beautiful to look at, is immaculate underneath, has a full set of tools and is totally correct in detail. The cars full history is known and there is a huge file of invoices with the car.

Notably, the vehicle is fitted with Collingburn seats, full custom made weather gear, original shock absorbers, correct air filter assembly, stainless steel nuts & bolts where appropriate, all correct clips, fittings and conduit, a working 30 mph light, original gauges. You just don't see them like this.

The car is UK registered with a V5 document.

The engine is a factory replacement TC unit.

She drives as well as she looks and has been meticulously and continuously maintained. An absolute delight of a car.

1953 MG TD - Sold

Well this might look like a normal TD at a glance but I suggest the purists look away now. This is a well sorted and very quick car which benefits from an extensive recent restoration and a number of performance upgrades.

The car has been stripped to a blank chassis, shot blasted and power coated then rebuilt with almost every conceivable performance modification, including but not limited to rebuilt shock absorbers, uprated bushes, new tyres all round and an anti-roll bar.

The entire car has been rewired with a new loom, an electronic rev-counter has been fitted to keep up with the engine but she of course retains the original gauge. For good measure a rebuilt starter motor and dynamo have been fitted and there is a new electric fan & thermostat assembly.

The engine has been fitted with an unleaded cylinder head, new bearings, a supercharger profile camshaft and new cam followers as well as a new water pump. A new Eaton supercharger kit has then been installed and set up at Peter Burgess' rolling road. She also has wide bore stainless steel exhaust system.

A rebuilt five-speed gearbox has been fitted to the car with brackets professionally made to avoid altering the chassis in any way (as is common with other conversions). This, along with the new high ratio differential allow the car to cruise comfortably at motorway speeds:

As you would expect the interior of the vehicle is like new with new leather seats and trim panels, custom fitted carpets, a new custom fitted hood, side screens and tonneau cover.. All spot on. This is a UK car on a V5, please contact me for full details and more photographs.

1954 MG TF - Sold

A home market, UK, RHD MG TF sold with it's original engine (matching numbers) and registration (on a UK V5).

The car is in good condition generally but with room for improvement; I've tried to price the car to reflect that and allow the new owner plenty of scope.

Mechanically she is very good indeed, starts easily, no smoke, knocks bangs or rattles and pulls well. Being a later "T-Series" the steering is very precise - quite a change from the pre-war models and the brakes pull up well too.

The paintwork shines beautifully (it looks as good as the photographs) but has a few spots that need attention. The tips of the front wings have some cracks in the paint and there are areas around the doors that would benefit from attention. I have photographed these to the best of my ability.

The trim is in good condition, with a decent hood and lovely custom tonneau cover. The gauges are correct, original and working as well as ever (the speedo is vague, very common).



MG TA Tickford, Steve Baker MG
MG TA Tickford, Steve Baker MG

1938 MG TA Tickford - Sold

A very rare, unrestored 1938 MG TA Tickford which has not been driven since the late 1950s. A proper "barn find" with fantastic provenance.

When the vehicle was taken off the road the previous owner removed the panels, seats, original carpets and several major components from the car and stored them in the attic of his house. These have survived extremely well. Sadly the car itself was not stored well and she will need a total restoration. Not for the feint of heart but a rewarding and a valuable experience. She will be a very desirable car when complete.

Only a few items are missing, others haven't survived but she is nearly complete and there's a good network of suppliers available for these cars. She is sold with a huge number of original parts you simply cannot buy. Even the original interior light is present, I had never previously seen an original in thirty years of working with MG T-Types.

The car still has an original letter from the body manufacturer Salmons & Sons to the first owner, the original factory instruction manual for the car as well as for the factory upgraded adjustable Hartford shock absorbers (a premium option also fitted to Lagondas, Rileys..) which are present and correct. The original, matching numbers, engine and gearbox are with the car.

Tickfords have been increasing in value (£50,000+ for a restored example) in recent years and they don't often come to market. Here's your chance to grab one. She is sold with original "MG" registration and is on a UK V5.

1936 MG PB - Sold

A change of circumstances brings about this extremely rare opportunity to own an MG PB in project form, only a handful have come to the market in recent years and I don't remember one as good as this.

The car is complete with a number of valuable and hard to find original factory items, the gauges are all present and correct and beautifully set in the correct dashboard panels, the correct headlamps are both present and in good condition, even the Autolube plates are still with the car.

The panelwork is all in good condition with just the doors to skin - there's a little work to do but it wont be long before the new owner is debating which colour to go for. All major components for the engine are here, including a new steel crankshaft, original carburettors and the correct rocker cover and sump.

In addition the work that has already been undertaken has been done to a very high standard, including a new ash frame by Rique Llinares and new leather seats are also included. There are still odds and sods to find but it's the easy stuff, you'll be able to walk around Beaulieu with a smug grin knowing you'll be able to finish your car.

The car is known to the MG MMM register and I can assist with registration.

1955 MG TF 1500 - Sold

A rare home market MG TF 1500 with it's original and correct 1500 "XPEG" engine fitted. She retains her original registration "RNC 336" and is sold with her UK V5 and buff log book.

This is an older restoration but has had a lot of money spent keeping her in good condition with over £5,000 of invoices for the last few years alone. There is a lovely folder with the car including photographs of the car dismantled and invoices for work from Naylor Brothers.

By no means a concours car, I really won't apply that term to anything that I'd consider driving! She is however, as you'll see from the photographs, in very good condition indeed. All she needs is a loving owner who's going to drive her. She's on the button and ready for summer.

1937 MG TA - Sold

I'll start by saying you could eat your dinner off the chassis; this car has been well restored and beautifully maintained. She also benefits from recent paint and chrome and sits well on 4 new 18" Blockley tyres.

The bespoke aluminium bodywork is of a similar design to the factory's Q-Type race car but with room for 2. It's well made and very sturdy (unlike some I've encountered!). I love the Bugatti style Aeroscreen mounts.

This is a very usable car, fitted with a supercharged MG XPAG engine and gearbox. The car runs well with good oil pressure and pulls like a train. The gearbox feels good and doesn't jump out of third (which is a common fault).

Not one for the shy or feint hearted, it's lively with the supercharger and loud with a custom made stainless steel exhaust. Certainly turns heads but for the right reasons.

Car is sold on it's original UK registration with V5 logbook.

1950 MG TD - Sold

Not "the best in the UK", not "concours", no hyperbole necessary. This is a really nice and genuine, numbers matching MG TD which has just come out of long-term ownership by a true enthusiast.

As you will see from the photographs the car is in good condition all round, there are a few signs of it's age but none that would stop you from displaying and driving her with pride. The paintwork shines beautifully.

This is an original RHD car (the vast majority of TDs were LHD) which was originally exported from the UK, first returning in the early 1990s. She is registered in the UK as "HSK 251".


MG TA, Steve Baker MG

MG TA, Steve Baker MG

1936 MG TA - Sold

The car has been subject to a ground-up restoration by the previous owner with a eye-watering file of invoices (and photographs) to support the work.

Correct, MG crested, MPJG engine, which has been rebuilt. Gearbox is spot on. This car has been absolutely sorted and is a credit to the former keeper (who had the car nearly 20 years).

The body tub is solid, woodwork is in great condition, four new wings have been fitted. Paintwork is good. Chrome is good with a lovely patina.

New seats were fitted, they are as new. The gauges have been restored by John Marks and are absolutely stunning. Surely better than new. Believe the car has only covered just over 2000 miles since restoration.

She is a UK car, with V5 and original registration.
