Roadster
The history of the MG Sports Cars started with the M Type in 1928. It was small, light and affordable and an immediate success both in sales and in performance. The boat-tail form with a fabric skinned body was a hit with the racing circuit as well as with the casual but enthusiastic driver.

The 4-cylinder 847 cc overhead valve engine was advertised at a conservative 27 horsepower (to minimize taxes) and could attain 4500 rpm. Its lightweight enabled a top speed of 65 mph and domination in hill climbing competitions. It is light and quick with superb handling making this a fun car to drive. Creature comforts were impressive for this affordable car and included full instrumentation, a solid walnut dashboard and leather seating.

The original owner retained this vehicle until 1972 when it found its way to the U.S. and was held in a museum.

The vehicle was restored in the 1980s retaining all of its original components.

No auction information available for this vehicle at this time.
