History:- The very last of 50 Airline Coupes made, and the only survivor of two on TA chassis. There are 24 known Airlines surviving around the world, and now the first (PA0286) and last (TA0355) are here in Australia.
It is often said that only one TA chassis was fitted with an Airline body but recent research has revealed that a second car was built but the body was deemed unrepairable and removed by its UK owner in the 1960s.
This car has had only seven previous owners since 1936, and remained in England until 1971, before being shipped to the USA until 1983, and then to Switzerland where it remained until 2012.
The car still wears it’s original registration plates – “MG 4952” issued in 1936. This car was featured in “The Sacred Octagon” in February 1978. Any further history or photos of this car (her name is “Grace”) would be appreciated by the owner.
Previous Owners:- Colonel & Mrs Maitland, Edward Lines, Terry & Barry Bone, Martin Shantz, Mark Gibbons, Kurt Baer, Wolfgang Fisher.
The rolling chassis was despatched from Abingdon on 27th July 1936 and delivered by Carbodies on 1st December, 1936
