This MG F-Type Magna was built in Abingdon, England, in January of 1932 and was featured in the April issue of 'Light Car' that same year, complete with photographs. It went to Jarvis of Wimbledon, in London, England where it was used as a demonstrator for that MG dealer. The car was also featured in The Light Car magazine in April 1932.
The current owner purchased the car in Melbourne Beach, Florida in 1992 and began a 12 year restoration. All new and used parts used in the restoration, including paint, were sourced in England to ensure authenticity.
The engine type is in-line 6-cylinder with a single overhead cam, which is driven by a front mounted generator. The engine produces about 90 horsepower with the supercharger or around 70 horsepower using twin SU carburetors.
Original parts, including engine, gearbox, instruments, body tub, sheet metal, radiator and shell, supercharger, interior, wheels, tires and headlamps were all sourced from England.
