Colour dark brown over cream (beige) combined with a brown leathercloth interior, and a brown mohair tonneau cover. Here we have a recreation of a famous MG ‘Cream Crackers’ works team car. The MG TA ‘Cream Crackers’ were successful in the U.K. trial competitions in the late 1930s. The presented 1936 MG TA was imported to the Netherlands in the year 2000, and it has known only one Dutch owner ever since. The car comes with a fully documented history, all the previous owners are known. The MG TA was modified to competition specifications by an MG specialist in the Netherlands, the original parts like the original windscreen and hood frame are still present. Costs nor effort were spared to build a truly competitive MG TA ‘Cream Cracker’ recreation, our test drives were impressive experiences; this is one of the best tuned naturally aspirated MG T-types we have ever driven! Hereby a listing of the most important modifications and updates: A tuned MG XPAG engine was mounted. The engine features a ‘billet steel’ phoenix crankshaft and a sports camshaft, two S.U. HS4 1 ½ inch carburettors, a Laystall airflowed aluminium cylinder head and a ‘free-flow’ exhaust manifold. Further mechanical updates are a Ford 5-speed gearbox and Alfin aluminium drum brakes around. The car is fitted with 19-inch wire wheels shod with 4.50×19 Blockley tyres, Brooklands aero screens, Hartford schock absorbers and twin back-mounted spare wheels. To avoid any confusion towards the real ‘Cream Cracker’ team cars, this desirable recreation flashes the words ‘Cream Crackered’ on the bonnet. This MG TA drives perfect and the driving experience, and the engine sound are truly exhilarating! This MG TA can be imported / exported to any country around the globe.
