Auctioneer’s Comment Cars

Mighty MGs

The Charterhouse auction of classic and vintage cars on Wednesday 11th April has a group of MG’s dating from 1930 up to 1974.

“MG, the initials for Morris Garage, as a marque has been in the heart of this nation since its formation in the early 1920’s.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “Production in the early years was all about two seater sports cars and in our auction we have pulled together a fabulous selection of MG’s from several collections from across the West Country representing some 44 years of British sports car production.”

The earliest MG in the auction is a 1930 MG M-Type Double Twelve. Finished in British racing green, this pretty looking vintage MG has been lovingly and painstakingly restored by its owner over the past decade. In all probability now being in a better than new condition, this early MG is estimated at £38,000-42,000*.
