A thrilling and beautifully presented supercharged Pre-War MG. Fast, fun and suitable for rallies and events worldwide.
Our featured 1933 MG L-Type special is a fabulous example of the breed and a fine tribute to the famous Works racing cars from Longwall Street, Oxford. Recently out of a large private collection, this particular car was once part of the famous Gene Ponder collection of significant MG sports cars.
In period, the L-Type was a proven competitor on rallies such as the Monte Carlo and the Tulip, while the J and K-types did duty on high-speed circuits. Starting with L-Type chassis, axles, and steering this car was suitably upgraded with J-Type inspired coachwork that features cycle wings, cut down cockpit sides and a specially made cowling for the front mounted supercharger. It is finished in a handsome two-tone black and green livery, and presents beautifully with very fine quality paintwork and detailing. A host of period-style accessories highlight the bodywork, including the high-mount exhaust with Brooklands silencer, Brooklands aeroscreens, black leather bonnet straps and proper painted wire wheels (with rear mounted spare) wrapped in fresh Blockley tires.
The two-place cockpit is trimmed in high-quality green leather, with seats piped in black to mimic the paint scheme. A black and green canvas boot covers the rear of the body, while a matching black tonneau cover (also piped in green) can be fitted for overnight stops or solo driving in cool weather. As with any proper MG special, the E.N.V preselect gearbox is fully exposed, with the signature chrome gated gear selector falling easily to hand. Instrumentation includes a large combination Tachometer/Speedometer sitting directly in line of the driver’s sight and behind the signature four-spoke Brooklands Bluemels steering wheel……………………………………………
