The SVW Register is part of the MG Car Club* and was established for the SA, VA and WA type MGs.
The SA, VA and WA cars are collectively known as "SVW" and the models date from early 1936 to late 1939. Since the register was established in the mid-1960s, a detailed database of information, ownership and history has been maintained.This is the most reliable and complete database of SVW cars in existence today, and of their owners.
The SVW Register also maintains a Spares Directory and can normally locate a source of the hard to obtain replacement spare parts (new or second-hand).
At present there are some 550 cars known to us, of which about 250 are owned by MG Car Club members. Owners of the other 300 are encouraged to join the MG Car Club to receive the full benefits the Register offers, and indeed, so as to add their support to the Registerís efforts.
We are always interested to hear from past owners of SVW cars who may wish to know the fate of the cars. We will probably know if the car still exists and who owns it, though we would need the owners permission to pass this information on. Current owners and the Register are also delighted to see old records, especially photos, of the cars, so if you have these we would very much like to hear from you.
The SVW Register is the principle reference for enquiries on SVW cars. To ensure that the records are correct and accurately record the details of all known surviving cars, you can enter the details of your car(s) via this site, by joining the SVW Register.
