Description

This is a very nice MG SA in good condition with a Swedish history reaching back to 1951. We don't know anything about the cars' history prior to that.
Lindberg, an engineer, owned the car in Stockholm in 1951. In 1953, it was owned by Forslunds Bil & Plåt of Stockholm. It landed to Bromma Bil & Skrotaffär in October 1954, where it was preserved for posterity. In the 1970s, it was owned by an MG and sports car enthusiast in Rimbo. Lars-Eric Wictorsson took control in the 1980s and managed a lengthy renovation. In 1996, MGCC Sweden awarded him "The Exceptional Renovation Award" for the refurbishment of this very outstanding SA / 2788.

In his book "Bosses Bilar," published in May 2005, Bosse Bildoktorn pays respect to this MG SA replica.

The current owner bought it from Wictorsson in 2018, but has decided to sell it in order to focus on other vehicles.

Facts about the model

MG SA tillverkades mellan 1936 och 1939. De var ämnade att ta upp kampen med SS Cars, bilarna som senare blev Jaguar. Innan krigsutbrottet 1939 hann MG bygga 2 739 exemplar. Modellen återupptogs aldrig som många andra gjorde efter kriget. SA var utrustade med för tiden (kanske än idag) många lyxiga detaljer samt bl.a. fyra hydrauliska domkrafter, hydrauliska bromsar, ekerhjul, fyrväxlad manuell växellåda med synkronisering på de två högsta växlarna, sollucka.
Värt att notera är bl.a urtaget i taket ovanför bakätet för att man skulle få plats med skrymmande hvuvdbonader. Både plommonstop och vackra hattar för kvinnorna. De flesta av dessa bilar kördes av ägaren själv och inte av någon inhyrd chaufför. En gentleman med motorintresse som ville ha en snabb och bekväm långfärdsbil var en av målbilderna för MG-fabriken. En familjelös dito med mer sportiga ambitioner valde förmodligen en bil i T-serien istället.
