"Despite a repaint in the 1980s, this car is a dream car for an original aficionado with a fantastically well-documented history."


It was sold new by Förenade Bil AB in Gothenburg in July 1956, and it was manufactured / built during the days of June 4-6, 1956, according to the documentation. The current owner, the third owner, has used the car lightly for 21 years. The car has a strong local connection in Gothenburg, with all three owners hailing from the city. Original warranty certificate, service book, and instruction book, as well as an original workshop manual and binders including receipts, invoices, inspection protocols, brochures, exhibition signs, and production certifications, ensure that a new owner will find intriguing reading. Everything is stored in a classic briefcase, with additional accoutrements stored in a vintage picinic basket. The meter has reached 100,000 km, implying that the total mileage is likely to be little more than 184,0000 km.

  • Mechanical condition:

    The engine was renovated a few years ago, and the engine, gearbox, and brakes are all in good working order. According to the owner, once the car has been parked for a while, it takes a few cranks of the starter motor to fuel up the carburetor. The engine is 1.5 liters and is largely shared with both the MGA model and the MGB.

  • Interior condition:

    Original skinninredning i ett fint och trevligt använt skick. Träpanelerna, innertaket och andra pyntade och arbetade detaljer likaså.

  • Exterior condition:

    Bilen lackerades om i originalkulör någon gång på åttiotalet och lacken har några små märken här och där från ett normalt samlarbilsbrukande. I övrigt är kromet snyggt och bilen har generellt ett aptitligt och presentabelt användarvänligt yttre.

  • General condition:

    Charmig familje-MG med en sportig ambition i ett grundmurat välhållet och trevligt skick. Lätt att vårda, underhålla och bruka för en ny ägare.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
  • For items that have not been collected within 14 days storage costs may be charged.
