To Auction: 1933 MG L-Type Magna Sports Roadster


This charming 1933 MG L-Type will be offered by RM Sotheby’s at their upcoming Arizona auction on the 28th and 29th of January.

It’s representitive of the small sports car offered by the MG Car Company in 1933 and 1934

A very desirable six cylinder engine of just 1086 cc is fitted. This is from the earlier K-series Magnette cars which had cross-flow cylinder head and overhead valves. MG’s pre-war sporting heritage has all manner of great engineering!

This particular example started out life as a four-seat L1 Tourer which was modified by the 1960s into the much sportier L2 bodywork. It lived with several owners in the UK and was transported to Japan in the 1990s until recently being shipped to America.

RM Auctions will sell the 1933 MG L1/L2 without reserve with an estimate of $150,000 – $200,000 USD. Images by Patrick Ernzen ©2015 Courtesy of RM Sotheby’s.
