A Meticulous MG

Section:

“Meticulously restored” MG 14/28 Super Sports bullnose two-door salonette for sale; it is the only surviving example of just six made in 1925

Just 400 MG 14/28 Super Sports were produced between 1924 and 1927. Of these, only five made in 1925 were ‘bullnose’ salonettes and of these only one of these is still in existence. Now, that car – which cost £475 or the equivalent of £29,100 today ($36,400, €33,000 or درهم133,500 today) when new at a time when the equivalent open top version cost £350 or the equivalent of £21,400 today ($26,700, €24,300 or درهم98,200 today) when new – is for sale.

 

Built at the Morris Garages Works and loaned to the Ramsgate Motor Museum during the ownership of a family named Sharpe from the 1970s until 2005, it was subsequently purchased in “well preserved condition” by the amusingly named “famed early MG restorer” Mr Fred Body.

 

“Very sparingly used” in the years since, this quirky red and black with red leather interior car is described as being “in immaculate order throughout” and capable of “quite happily gracing a concours field [to] win prizes.” It was displayed as part of MG’s 90th anniversary celebration at Silverstone in 2014.

 

Offered previously at auction at the Royal Automobile Club, Woodcote Park, Epsom in June 2018, Vintage & Prestige Classic Cars now seek £75,000 ($94,000, €85,000 or درهم344,000) for the last surviving 1925 MG 14/28 Super Sports bullnose salonette, registration ‘MO 6709.’

  1. A fun car but I cannot imagine it to be very reliable – the only bonus is that it is probably very simple so easy to fix
