    TYPE:  VA SALOON   COUNTRY: Australia 

    I have for sale my MG VA Saloon that I have owned for over 25 years.

    It is in original condition, only missing two emblems (bumper rear and spare wheel emblems). Comes with new tacho reduction gear.

    The car requires a full restoration and has rust around the rear wheel arches plus some minor body damage. For more information and photos contact me as above.



    This MG VA was originally exported to Canada directly from the factory in 1938 and spent the next 65 years in North America, gradually progressing down the Eastern Seaboard to Florida, from which she was purchased and re-imported to South Wales by the previous owner in 2003, intended to be used as part of his classic wedding car fleet. Following a change of his plans, I bought her from this gentleman later that year.

    The VA has been in my ownership now for 15 enjoyable years. When it arrived, it clearly needed full restoration, which I managed over the next few years. She is finished in attractive dark blue with professionally-trimmed blue leather interior and correct full weather equipment in as new condition. All the instruments work correctly in the lovely dashboard and the chrome is in good condition.

    Receipts for thousands of pounds of work and parts during and after the restoration; this car has been garaged and fully maintained during my ownership. A lovely open 4-seater car which exudes elegance and character, eligible for VSCC and pre-war events and rallies.

    The car runs extremely well and is very reliable with a strong engine, gearbox and drive train. The fitment of hardened valve seats allow her to run happily on modern unleaded fuel and she has good oil pressure.

    This is a MG VA Saloon, first registered in April 1939, and has been in our family for about 45 years.

    Originally black (according to the log book) it is now Red/Black, although, as can be seen in the photos, the red is peeling.

    The car is in good original condition and is all there, although it hasn't moved under it's own steam for quite some years. There are 79238 miles showing on the odometer.

    The engine turns over very freely with the starting handle so is not seized and we have rolled the car out of the garage so the brakes aren't seized.

    The car will require some restoration but is all complete and original apart from the paintwork. An old Logbook is available and a V5 Registration Document has been applied for.
