1939 MGSA Tickford

The MG SA was designed to compete with the SS Jaguar 100, Triumph and Riley. They are equipped with a 6-cylinder pushrod engine with twin SU carburettors which in prototype performance was 2 litres. "The Motor" wrote that the elegant body lines suggesting a car that cost 1000 pounds, when in fact a Saloon cost 375 pounds. In competitions, the car was not a success, the car's acceleration was modest but with the ability to cruise at just over 70 mph.

They were available as a factory-built Saloon also Drophead made from body-builder Salmons & Sons (later called Tickford) and a 4 door Tourer made by Charlesworth. Out of the 2738 MG SA's built, 696 were Tickfords.

MG6632 also with a Tickford body by Salomon built in 1939, was one of the last MG SAs ever made. It was restored in 1967 but finally engine problems took it off the road and it also underwent a total restoration from 2004 to 2008. This model has the later body with louvre vents and a side mounted spare wheel.
