SA Charlesworth

Bob Simpson gave me the heads up on a very rare SVW car going to auction tomorrow 24th June. Its a Charlesworth for full restoration at £4-8000k which is cheap. I've only seen one for sale and it was at £68k and there are only 2 in the UK of 5 known worldwide.

Check it out at Bicester Classic sale

Sold for £19,040 and with around £50k pro restoration will be £70k to break even. The new owner will have a wonderful car to use and show, great to see another on the road

My new project arrives home at last

Hello everyone

My new project, a 1936 MG SA, has arrived home and now I have a huge number of questions.

My first aim is to make it safe.  The car hasn't been on the road since 1971 and the brakes need a complete overhaul and a complete new wiring loom.

Does anybody live in the South-West?  I live in Cornwall and would appreciate viewing an SA for comparision.

I have been looking at new tyres and wonder whether anyone has any…
