One of Just Five Known Examples in the World 1936 MG SA Tourer Coachwork by Charlesworth

The chassis of the 1936 MG SA Tourer pictured here was delivered from the MG factory in Abingdon on April 27, 1936 to coachworks of Charlesworth Bodies (1931) Limited at Much Park Street in Coventry. 

This rare Charlesworth Tourer was originally retailed through MG’s well-known University Motors in Britain. It was registered at the Middlesex County Council Registrations department and was given the registration number MG 4856.Its original factory 75bhp, 2,288cc six-cylinder overhead valve engine has been freshly rebuilt with less than 250 miles on it and is fully detailed. Great attention was spent to highlight the beauty of this engine’s design as well as ensuring its smooth, reliable performance. This MG has been upgraded to a Ford 5-Speed gearbox giving much better performance and usability to the vehicle.This fine example of Charlesworth-bodied MG SA has been painted a striking pearl white with a painted tan beltline that matches the cloth convertible top and boot. This subtle, but effective color arrangement in combination with the traditional square MG grille, brightwork give the car a distinctive and highly appealing presence.The interior panels and seats are reupholstered in soft tan leather and display excellent craftsmanship. This rich-looking interior is underscored by fitted tan wool carpets, gleaming chrome accents and refinished walnut fittings. The wooden dash houses a full set of rebuilt Jaeger gold instruments along with a period University Motors Ltd. plaque.The handsome 1936 MG SA Charlesworth Tourer exhibits minimal wear in both form and function. There are a mere five know SA survivors left in the world with this type of Charlesworth coachwork, and just seventeen Charlesworth coachbuilt SAs in total. Fully verified by the MG SA club, this fine example is ready for both grand touring and concours events where it will be fully welcomed.
