MG J3 Midget 1932

It was in August 1932 that the J series Midgets were announced with Cecil Kimber too impatient to wait for the London Motor Show in October of that year. The whole Midget range was in need of rationalisation and this was certainly achieved with the new Midgets. There were 4 models announced, J1, J2, J3 and J4 with only the J1 and J2 available initially. With the J2 selling for just £199.10s and the J1 for marginally more, the cars were within the reach of many enthusiasts of the era.

MG J4 Midget 1932

The J4 Midget was made available to the MG fraternity in the spring of 1933 and this car along with the J3 completed the J series range. The J series were first announced in August 1932 prior to the Motor Show of that year with Cecil Kimber too impatient to wait for the annual gathering of the worlds motor manufacturers displaying their new models. The whole Midget range was in need of rationalisation and this was most certainly achieved with the J types. With only the J1 and J2 available initially, the J1 carried four seat open and closed bodies, whilst the J2 was the open two seater sports version. Some 9 months later the J3 and J4 versions followed with the J3 basically being a supercharged J2 and the J4 the out and out racing car.

MG KN Saloon 1932

A surprise was in store for MG enthusiasts at the 1932 Motor Show with the last minute launch of a new series of 6 cylinder cars designated Magnette. The already popular Magna range of MG's or "Light Sixes" as they were often referred to, continued in production alongside the smaller engined overhead cam J types. The six cylinder cars did not generate quite the same following as the four cylinder higher-revving stablemates, nonetheless they fulfilled a market need aimed at those enthusiasts who wanted a bit more refinement and could afford to pay for it.

MG J1 Midget 1932

The J series of MG Midgets was to be a refinement of the C and D Type forerunners, announced in 1932 at the Motor Show a whole new series of cars made their debut. The J1 was offered with 4 seater open or closed bodywork and the J2 was strictly a two seater sports and the racing variants, the J3 and J4 although launched to the public, were not to go into production until early 1933.

MG J2 Midget 1932

Announced in August 1932 the J2 Midget was outstanding value for just £199 10s. and was within the reach of many enthusiasts of the era. It was based on the successful design of the C type or Montlhery Midget as it was better known, a direct derivative of the M type. From the outset the car represented everything that was right in basic sports car design incorporating such things as a large rear mounted slab type petrol tank with a huge fast fill1 petrol cap, fold flat windscreen with optional aero screens, centre lock wire wheels, remote control gear change, and a spring spoked flat steering wheel.

MG VA Saloon 1937

The MG Car Company was plunged into turmoil early in 1935 when William Morris sold MG to Morris Motors which formed the major part of the Nuffield Organisation. The organisation was primarily set up to rationalise Morris's sprawling business concerns and in the interests better efficiency allied to cost savings. Now known by the title of Lord Nuffield, it was well known that he personally disliked motor sport and it was in this area particularly that MG suffered most.

MG YA Saloon 1947

When production of the MG TC resumed at Abingdon after the war, plans were also well advanced for the production of a new MG saloon which had originally been designed during the period 1937 to 1939 for introduction in 1941. The MG Y type or one and a quarter litre saloon as it was sometimes known was really an MG version of the Morris Eight series E four door saloon and was a pre-war project that Syd Enever and Cowley suspension designer Alec Issigonis had been working on in 1937.

MG YT Tourer 1947

Up until 1935 the MG Car Company and Morris Motors were essentially separate companies although both were owned by Sir William Morris. Following a takeover in 1935 the two concerns were incorporated under the umbrella of the Nuffield organisation which also owned other marques such as Wolseley and Riley. From then on the derivation of MG models was to be from several camps in order to rationalise and to introduce a common parts policy.

MG 1100 Saloon 1962

Discounting the 'modern' MG saloons under the Metro, Maestro and Montego banner, the BMC 1100 based MG saloons were the top selling car in Britain for many years. Over 3 million 1100/1300 variants were produced between 1962 and 1973 with the MG versions proving to be amongst the most popular. The 1100 was quite revolutionary and was described in all the promotional literature as "the most advanced MG of all time!" This statement no doubt raised a few eyebrows from the ranks of the diehard enthusiasts and the car was at the time a most unwelcome piece of badge engineering.

MGB Roadster 1962

The last MGB convertible rolled off the production line at the Abingdon factory on the 22nd of October 1980 and it ended an era of sports car motoring, not only of the MGB but also of MG sports cars in general. The first MGB to come off the line at Abingdon bearing chassis number G-HN3 101 left the factory in June 1962. The MGB, although launched in 1962, continued in production in similar form, right the way through to the end of its production.

MGC GT 1967

The arrival of the MGC in 1967 was greeted with mixed reactions both from enthusiasts and the motoring press. It can be described as one of the most controversial sports cars ever produced from Abingdon and during its short life (1967-1969) the car was never short of attention, particularly from the press. The arrival of the MGC was partly due to the flagging sales of the Austin Healey 3000 and the fact that the original design of the MGB mono-coque structure was capable of taking larger power units than the 1800 cc engine.

MGC Roadster 1967

The MGC was the first ‘high performance’ version of the MGB as from early in the design stages of the MGB there was an intention to create high performance variants, using a range of Vee engines that did not make it to production. The MGC was very much more than a tuned MGB and in fact was a completely re-engineered car, but retaining many visual connections to the MGB. On the outside the MGC was often mistaken for an MGB as the only visual differences were in the heavily bulged bonnet with a transverse chrome strip that accentuated the bulges, and the standard use of 15” wheels instead of 14” on the MGB.

MG Metro 1300 1982

The MG Metro was introduced in May 1982 some 18 months after the pain of the closure of the MG factory at Abingdon. This tainted many MG enthusiasts reception for this car in a negative way as it was somewhat different to the traditional sports car market, although at this time the then new ‘hot hatch’ era heralded by the Golf GTi was in full swing, and as far as manufacturers and most car buyers were concerned open top two seat sports cars were something from the past.

MGR V8 1992

The MGRV8 was conceived in 1988, following the successful reintroduction of the new MGB bodies back into production by British Motor Heritage. The MG RV8 is a heavily revised MGB powered by a 3.9 litre Rover V8 engine delivering 185bhp, delivered to the rear wheels via a 5 speed Rover gearbox. External body panels were revised to provide the car with a distinctive departure to the MGB although the clear original MGB proportions can still be clearly seen.
