MG Built Large Cars, Too

For most of us, MG means small, sporty cars. In pre-war England however, MG built some rather large cars aimed directly at SS (Jaguar's original name). I've admired the 'big' MG saloon cars from day one, but as you can imagine they are thin on the ground here in the US of A.

The one that always gets my attention is the MG SA 2- liter car. The tall, imposing grille flanked by large chromed headlights gave it a real presence. Going up against marques like Jaguar and Bentley, the car was luxurious with all leather seating, walnut trim and fine wool carpets. It was also one of the first MGs to offer a radio as an option.
