1932 The sole surviving MG 'D' Salonette For Sale

Beautifully restored but price reflects the need for some easy recommissioning. Do read on.

Yes, this car has been heavily advertised (by others) until most of the world has surely seen it. It has failed to sell because it has been offered at ridiculously inflated and unrealistic prices and has also been incorrectly described. I trust the following will allow this very rare car (for it is the only known MG 'D' Salonette to survive) to find a good home and a new owner that can put this unique car back on the road.

This MG model is one of only very few 'D' salonettes produced in 1932 by the Abingdon factory and is recognised by the
relavant authorities as the only one to have survived in its original form. They were given competition by the much cheaper ohc Morris Minor saloon, and were rapidly displaced by the MG 'J' Salonette in 1933 with its improved engine.

This car has seen enormous effort lavished upon it, but further finishing work is still needed to finalise the rebuild. An exquisite body by David Earp is exact to factory specification and is complimented by the magnificent sliding sun roof, the beautifully accurate interior and the rare windscreen and window furniture that make the Salonette and Airline Coupes so intricate and difficult to restore.  The new owner will have no such worries sourcing anything difficult, as all is there, restored and in place.

With the hugely difficult body and its fittings have been safely rebuilt and finished, attention is needed for some easy recommissioning of the engine, carb. and braking system. A very generous allowance has been offered against this work and is seen reflected in the low asking price. Under instruction we have rewired the car, fitted a brand new dynamo, set-up the steering and fitted a new and factory correct steering wheel, leaving very little mechanical work for the new owner to undertake at 'love-my-car' rates! Whilst we can undertake any recommissioning , it can put the price beyond many people's reach, and as easy work only is required here, it is better done by the owner restorer at leisure, especially as nothing else needs attention.

The car is finished in Oxford & Cambridge blues; the interior is completed in beige leather with blue carpeting and polished mahogany finishes.  Spare paint, carpet and other accessories accompany the car. The car sports the original engine, rare bronze 1&1/ 8th carburettor, original 3-speed gearbox, original SU 'Petrolift', Rotax K624 headlamps, correct dashboard and new honeycomb radiator.

The car comes with full factory chassis file, long history, MG Car Club recognition and register No., original registration plate from new and current DVLA paperwork to complete.

This is the perfect all-weather small car for UK touring events, Pre-war Prescott , super fun jaunts to the pub and no moans from the wife or partner for that weekend away, as you sit in the warmth and comfort provided by the cosy body; AND all that luggage space offered by the back seat as well as the folding boot rack. Two fingers then to the 2-seat open-top boys!!

Forget dividends, Govt. bonds and the like..... this one, IS a real investment, so don't get trampled in the queue?

From the late 1940s until the MG factory at Abingdon closed in 1980, it was the huge American demand for British sports cars that brought sufficient orders to keep the production lines in business. While other countries around the world and the home market were important, none was as important as North America. The modern-looking, ...

The MG F-Type Magna was the first six-cilinder engined sportscar from Abingdon-on-Thames. There is no doubt that it was a genuine sportscar with the archetypal straight six engine.
