Only 57 MG TBs were manufactured with the exclusive Tickford body designed by Salmons and Sons of Newport Pagnell. This special body featured roll-up windows, a top with inner lining that hid the top mechanism from view and rich walnut trim through out the interior, further separating it from the standard roadster. The Tickfords were three-position drophead coupes with top that could be folded halfway back or all the way down. A rare car when new, it is believed that only 30 examples of this remarkable MG survive today.Presented is a charming Tickford that was discovered in the hands of an MG collector who had disassembled the car for restoration just before he passed away in 1982. After more than a decade spent gathering information on TBs and Tickfords, the subsequent owner and Pebble Beach entrant and judge began to rebuild the car in his garage, aiming to achieve the most authentic restoration possible. Meticulously restored in a color scheme that was available from new; green with green top and tan interior. This car also features several items from the MG-Approved Extra Equipment list such as spare bulb carrier, dipping headlights, inspection lamp, fire extinguisher, master batter switch and turn signals. Other period correct accessories include polished aluminum valve cover and block side cover, supercharger boost gauge and Bluemels-Brooklands racing steering wheel. A past Pebble Beach award winner, the TB Tickford offers a unique opportunity to own a very limited production British sports car.- Supercharged 1250 CC 4 cylinder engine- 70 HP at 5,500 RPM- 4 Speed Transmission- One of 30 TB Tickfords believed to exist
