1933 MG Magna L Type

Chassis number:  L0369

Registration Number: OD5833

A rare & very useable example coming to us with massive bills showing that absolutely everything has been redone mechanically whilst preserving the light patina of use & originailty to the body of the car.  This car was in single onwership for close to 50 Years & also spent time in a musem in Pembrookshire which accounts for its amazing state of preservation.

It has been VERY well maintained, and exudes a genuine and authentic patina from having only had 4 owners from new. Although rebuilt in the early 90s, the car retains most of its factory body, together with its original wings, apron, tank and bonnet.   The interior is completely re-upholstered in Cereleun blue leather, with new chroming , new roof, side-screens & full/half tonneau. 

Being a Magna tourer configuration the car boasts seating for four.  The rear seat is also well suited to soft luggage or a set of Golf clubs.  The car was bought by the previous owner over 50 yesars ago and has a period correct 'L' Magna 6 cyl. crossflow engine.  This was completely rebuilt, and recently received a fully overhauled clutch, rebuilt headlamps, complete engine and brake service and thorough road test ready for its new owner having just completed running in.  Less then 2000 miles have been covered since the rebuild.

Although the car has been stored for many years of its life, which has accounted for a fully documented history from new, it has also preserved so much of its factory provenance.   The car is offered with a factory chassis file, factory letters, a resume of all owners and the work carried out.

The detailed photos clearly show the originality and fine condition of this interesting car, and from a professional stand point we feel this particular car is very fair market value.

Ingress & egress is particualrly easy on this model as the cars doors open almost 180 degress.  At 6ft 3" I am more then comfortable in it so it is well suited to the taller owner.  Paint is a pleasing two tone blue matching the interior leather well.

Being a 6 cylinder car it has plenty of power & drives extemely well making it well suited to rallies & extended touring.
