Looking for 'Betsy', probably an MG TA, although perhaps a TB or TC, last known whereabouts, England, 1957

A sentimental shot in the dark, I am attempting to determine the fate of the car described above, and shown in the attached scan of a 60+ year old photograph.

My father met and married my mother in England, and returned with her to Canada in October of 1957, departing from Liverpool. I believe the car was sold and remained in England upon their departure. I am not in possession of chassis or serial numbers.

My father and mother have both been deceased for many years, so I have no means of obtaining or providing further information.

I would be pleased to receive any further insight or advice.

IMPORTANT - Please Read

  • It is sad to report that even in our little corner of the internet there are fraudsters and scammers operating. A T-Typer who recently posted a "Wanted" advert has received a response from someone who claimed to have "the parts" he was after, asking for payment via Western Union money transfer (a haven for scammers) and quoting a PO Box address. We can only echo the cautionary note given by Craigslist at the top of every classified ad: Beware any deal involving Western Union, Moneygram, wire transfer, cashier check, money order, shipping, escrow, or any promise of transaction protection/certification/guarantee.
  • When you receive a response to a Wanted advert on ttypes.org, apply common sense. Does the person sound like a T-Typer? Ask for photos of all of the parts, including close-ups on serial numbers or other distinguishing features. If the person refuses or makes excuses, do not continue with the deal. Likewise, if you are selling parts, then be absolutely sure that any payment has cleared completely before shipping anything. Where possible, deal locally, face-to-face, or failing that, use PayPal, which affords you a level of buyer protection.
  • The worldwide MG T-Type community is close-knit, and at ttypes.org we know personally many of the individuals that are part of it, so if you have any doubt at all about a transaction, contact us in the first instance before proceeding with any deal.
