Only 379 MGTB models were ever built by the MG Car Company between April and September 1939. World War II forced the company into wartime production. Post war, the company quickly introduced the MGTC model and went on to produce over 10,000 TCs. A primary reason for the success of MG was the factory had never been bombed during the war and they were able to immediately resume car manufacturing. This car was the 23rd MGTB produced with a build date of May 2, 1939. It was first registered in Surrey, England on July 5, 1939. A log book provides ownership back to 1961. This car was pulled from a scrap yard in Anniesland in Glasgow, Scotland in 1963 by an enterprising young man who intended to restore the car for his girlfriend whom he later married. The car passed through 4 other owners in Scotland before finally being owned by a US Naval officer stationed in Edzel Scotland. The car was shipped to the US in 1972 and was purchased by William Sillhan of Pensacola FL in 1990 and went into storage for the next 23 years.

The current owner purchased the car in 2013 and intended to restore it for vintage pre-war racing. He found another car for that project and decided to resurrect this real piece of British MG history. Of the 313 2-seat roadsters built in 1939 only about 15 have made their way to the US.
