1938 MG TA Police Car in Historics 12th March Auction

Published 25 February 2016

This 1938 MG TA ex Lancashire Police Car features in Historics 12th March Auction estimated at £24,000-£28,000, which is the normal price range for a TA or TC.

Some facts about 1938 are that there were around 2.5 million vehicles on UK roads compared to 31 million today. And there were 7,500 road deaths, v/s 1,775 in 2014, which clearly shows how much safety has improved.

CTF 921 was first registered in February 1938, to Lancaster Police.  When its duties were done, it had a more sedentary life in the ownership of a Canadian who took such a shine to the car that he shipped it across the Atlantic when he returned to his homeland.  

A subsequent American owner treated the car to light restoration before the car returned to the UK and now graces the Historics sale on March 12th. This 76-year old is resplendent in its black coachwork and red interior trim, and mechanically is said to be faultless.

The distinguished 1938 MG TA is one of 160+ fine classic motor cars, across a wide range of values, eras and marques, on sale on Saturday, March 12th at Historics at Brooklands, Surrey, where all consignments can be viewed on the Thursday and Friday prior.
