The MG TB was announced in 1939 at the MG Car Company in Abingdon-on-Thames, England, as a successor to the MG TA. Production was limited to 379 cars when later that year England entered WWI and MG began military production. Only 60 of these cars were manufactured with the exclusive Tickford Drop Head Coupe body design from Salmon and Sons of Newport Pagnell. Approximately 25 survive today. This TB Tickford was built in July 1939, and purchased by Mr. G. Kitchingman. Five owners and 38 years later, the car was shipped to Australia, where it remained until 2002, when the present owner purchased the car and shipped it to the United States. A three-year restoration was completed, with parts sourced and imported from England. The four-cylinder engine, which powered MGs from 1939 through 1954, delivers 54.4 HP through a four-speed gearbox.
A Rare MG by Salmon & Sons
The MG TB was announced in 1939 at the MG Car Company in Abington-on-Thames, England as a successor to the MG TA. Production stopped at 379 cars later that year when England entered World War II and MG began armament production. Only 60 of these cars were manufactured with the exclusive Tickford Drop Head Coupe body design from Salmon & Sons of Newport Pagnell. Approximately 25 survive today.

The MG TB came with a four-cylinder XPAG engine, which powered MG's from 1939 through 1954. It delivered 54.4 horsepower through a four-speed gearbox.

This TB Tickford (440) was built in July 1939 and was purchased by Mr. G. Kitchingman of Leeds. Five owners and 38 years later, the car was exported to Australia, where it remained until 2002, when the present owner purchased the car and shipped it to the United States.

This car has undergone a three year restoration, using parts sourced and imported from England.

The Tickford Drop Head Coupe was a special body built by Salmon & Sons on the MG chassis in Newport Pagnell.

TB 0440 won Best of Class at Amelia Island in 2006. And Best of Show in Gatlinburg in a field of 380 MGT-cars.

This MG TB Tickford was built in July 1939, only months before the outbreak of war in Europe, by Mr. Kitchingham, who owned it for 38 years before the car was shipped to Australia. The current owner acquired it there in 2002.

A complete restoration was undertaken that took three years to complete. Since then, it has been a consistent award winner at shows at which it has competed.

Only 60 special-bodied Tickfords were built; 25 are known to exist. The TB was powered by a four-cylinder, overhead cam engine that developed 50 horsepower.
