![CDATA[
The MG VA, or MG 1Ż litre as it was originally marketed was produced between February 1937 and September 1939 and was the smallest of the three sports saloons they produced in the late 1930s, the others being the SA and WA. It used a tuned version of the push-rod, overhead valve four-cylinder Morris TPBG type engine and had twin SU carburettors developing 54bhp at 4500rpm. Drive was to the live rear axle via a four-speed manual gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios. The British Motor magazine tested a VA tourer which reached a top speed of just over 76mph and a 0-50mph time of 15.8 seconds. With the windscreen folded down the top speed increased to a heady 82mph.
The paperwork for this well-presented MG shows a total of only three owners. The last of whom enjoyed this car for 20 years. During his tenure, the MG underwent a body off restoration and a total engine rebuild in 2015. The cars useability and reliability are both enhanced with the fitment of an electric fuel pump, electric indicators and waterless radiator coolant. The car presents extremely well in cream with a red interior. A new red hood, tonneau cover, four new Blockley tyres and impressive panel fit complete the look. On a recent test drive, this good looking MG turned heads and drove wonderfully. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and various bills and receipts, JT 7868 is a very usable example of this rare model.
