Besides the well-known sports cars, MG also produced a larger, more family-suited series of cars, beginning with the MG SA. This SA Tickford, along with the SA Saloon, are the largest MGs ever built.
These luxury cars were intended not for motor sport as such, but rather the gentle British road rallies of the time, especially in the Concours d'Elegance which concluded many events. MG SA Tickfords won often and MG promoted this success.
Salmons & Sons (founded in 1830) produced the 'Tickford' folding top from which the model gets it popular name and still exists today as a division of Aston Martin.
Unique features included hydraulic jacks at each of the wheels which permit the car to be elevated from the ground either front, rear or both. Options on this car include a seven valve (tube) radio, a lighted rear number plate and a rare original rear bumper. The duo green paint scheme features Ulster green on the fenders and Dublin/Apple green on the body.
The majority of the restoration, including paint and mechanical was done by the current owner over 30 years.
93 (possibly as few as 57) MG (Messa) SA Tickfords survive worldwide.Also photographed at :
