MG WA

Open 4-seater, saloon, drophead coupé.

Many similarities to the SA, with the same engine bored out and using a  higher compression ratio,  the same 123ins wheelbase, and partly synchro 'box. But there were also 14ins hydraulic brakes, using a dual master cylinder arrangement, tie-rods were fitted to the front axle and the car had a wider rear axle than the SA. All undeniably elegant, with several nice touches such as the two-tone octagonal instruments and the extremely comprehensive tool kit for the saloons. And all for £442. The wrong time to market such a vehicle the most luxurious MG to that date.
