Description


First registered in November 1937 this MG VA Open Tourer presents beautifully in its delightful and period faithful shade of French Blue. Restored at great expense around this lovely example, of what has become a comparatively rare car; plus it really is just as good underneath as it is on top. During its restoration the engine and gearbox were rebuilt with a re-balanced crank-shaft and fly-wheel. Photographic records of the restoration are on file. Introduced in time for the 1936 Motor Show, the MG VA or 1 Litre as it became more commonly known was primarily a replacement for the N Type Magnette. The VA was available as a saloon, an open tourer or as a coach-built Tickford convertible and they were priced at 325, 280 and 335 respectively. The VA is a neat well-proportioned car, built on a conventional and sturdy MG chassis that is unique to the VA at 14' 3" long. The power unit was a pushrod overhead valve type of 1,548 cc with twin semi-downdraught SU carburettors with a power output of 54 bhp @ 4,500 rpm. The weight of the car, at over a ton (23 cwt) precluded any record-breaking performance, but nonetheless the MG was no slouch with the saloon and convertible returning a top speed of over 75 mph and the open tourer managing nearly 82 mph with the windscreen folded down flat. The VA did sell quite well during its two-year production run with a total of 2,407 all variants leaving the factory gates prior to the outbreak of war. This really is a super little car that will endure any inspection and is certainly much less costly than the cost of creating/restoring a tired VA to this standard. We feel we have priced this car competitively compared with the very small number of VAs currently available and whats more with the summer coming the whole family can enjoy it together.
