Martin Curren’s TA Tickford Rebuild Project

Martin Curren describes the rebuild of his TA Tickford which he has owned since 1968. The details of the car are

  • MG TA chassis number 3184, engine number 3442,
Tickford body number 4674
  • MG build date 13th March 1939, Salmons & Son build date 15th to 21st April 1939

His ownership of the car starts with a very common tale of buying it as a cheap car when he was a student, it being laid up in the 1970s with every intention of restoring it … and then adult life took over!

Martin has been very thorough in his description of his rebuild which is especially interesting as his car is a Tickford bodied TA. So it’s a detailed description which you can read by clicking the image below.
