MG Sedans Had A Sporty Charm

There is an excellent article over on Driving.Ca by Bill Vance about some of our favorite cars, the MG sedans of the 50s and 60s. As the article says,MG Saloon Cars “The MG name is inextricably associated with the sporty, two-passenger British roadster, a car that laid the foundation for the North American sports car movement following the Second World War. What is less well known is that MG also made some interesting sedans before the war — including the 1937-1939 2.3-litre SA — and after. The post-war sedans were imported to North America.” Often these were badge engineered with other marks such as Morris, Austin, and Wolseley.

From those early SAs all the way up through the MG 1100s and 1300s, these sedans while not well known in the US had a great following at home in the UK. Please head on over to the site and read the article, and if you find these cars as fascinating as I do, make sure to pick up a copy of MG Saloon Cars: From the 1920s to the 1970sir?t=palmettobugdigit&l=as2&o=1&a=1901432068 by Anders Ditlev Clausager. It is a beautiful book and really relays the history that not many know.
