EXCLUSIVE: 1932 MG to 1965 Jaguar British Hoard

If you are a fan of British classics and have been on the hunt for something rare, you will definitely want to have a closer look at this Barn Finds Exclusive! Reader Jeff F is helping find homes for over a dozen classics from the Bobby Gunther Collection. There are several desirable MGs, a handful of even more desirable Jaguars and even a couple Triumph 2000s. While $245,000 will take home the entire collection, you can contact Jeff about individual cars via the form below!

What Makes It Special? A wonderful collection of British Cars from one mans passion. The Bobby Gunther Collection was at one time over 35 cars, several have been sold, while several remain. From a rare 1932 MG F1 Magna to a rare 1965 Jaguar 3.8S with 4 speed and overdrive. Tens of thousands have been spent on restorations that have not been completed due to the passing of the owner. Cars that remain are as follows: 1932 MG F1 Magna, 1936 MG PB, 1938 MG TA, 1949 MGTC, 1954 MGTF, 1959 MGA Coupe, 1948 Jaguar MK IV, 1954 Jaguar XK120 Coupe, 1954 Jaguar XK120 Roadster, 1960 Jaguar MK IX, 1965 Jaguar 3.8S, Two 1949 Triumph 2000s

Body Condition: Need restorations but are solid straight examples to start with.

Mechanical Condition: Some cars run and some do not. Please contact me about individual cars and I can provide more detail on their current condition.

This really is an amazing collection of cars and would definitely be worth a closer look in person. The XK120 Roadster is likely to be the one that grabs most people’s attention, but we wouldn’t mind having one of the MGs (any of them really). Be sure to contact Jeff for additional information and individual photos!

    Gawd. Another car hoard destined to be split apart over months and years. I hope nobody has to go through the grunt work of selling too much tonnage of my stuff when I pass. There seems to be no end to hoarders of British cars, hell even 80s Imperials. Think of the garbage their survivors have to go through because of their indifference to its sentimental value to the deceased?

    The red MGTC evokes memories of the mid-50’s, when I was a junior high lad who just read the book “The Red Car”, about a kid who found an abandoned TC in Frenchy’s Garage. Thanks for the memories! (P.S., being red-green color blind, I’m assuming red)

      Guess what? It has a red body bucket, Green front clip and patina’d grey prime fenders. You were exactly right!

    Unfortunately, the buyer base for T series MG’s in this country is probably going the way of the buyer’s base for Model T’s and Model A’s. Not too surprising either – the performance of an MGTC will only impress you if your regular ride is a Model A or so. By way of disclaimer, I am a young 65 and intend to own a T series MG along with a Model T someday soon, but I recognize that generally my contemporaries and younger have very little interest in these cars.

    The black MGTA is a bit rare….. That’s special Tickford bodied drop head coupe.
    Only around 260 produced, I believe. Restored – could fetch close to $100K. The red MGTC looks like an export model with the bumpers……somewhat rare as well.

    Where are the rest of the pictures? Are the cars mentioned mangled?

    I’d love to get the black Triumph Roadster – just like my student car!

    Couldn’t help notice that a couple of the MG’s look interesting…….. the red TC appears to be completely restored and with those bumpers it may be 1 of less than 500 “EXU” models specifically produced for export to the USA….so a bit rare. The black TA is a Tickford drop-head coupe with special coachwork, a 3-position top and roll up windows. 1 of less than 300 produced (of which maybe half might still exist), so even a bit more rare. Done correctly, I think it could fetch close to 6 figures.

    As an avid MG fan I`m always interested in bring back these cars to their former glory. I must say though that if I did the TA and TC I`d be very surprised all be it pleasantly to achieve 6 figures. May be over half that but at some considerable cost. Just my opinion ofcourse. It always amazes me how these classic cars are placed in a garage or store, the door shut and seemingly forgotten. Sometimes seems sacrilege to me.
