MG 1923 - date: Cecil Kimber joined Morris Garages (MG) in 1921 and during the early 1920s he experimented with various special bodies based on Morris chassis. In due course he modified a Morris Oxford to become the MG Super Sports. This proved to be so successful a strategy, that the MG Car Company was duly set up in 1928. The transformation of a standard Morris into a sports by relatively mild uprating of the engine and suspension, plus the installation of rakish bodywork, was to set the pattern for MG’s during the next decades. Notable early MG’s included Kimber’s 14/40hp, the Morris Minor-based M type Midget, and the 18/80. Major successes in motorsport raised the profile of the MG company in the prewar era, and Midgets evolved through J, PA and PB series models, then moved on to the TA and short-lived TB variants, before hostilities temporarily put a halt to production. From 1935 MG was part of the Nuffield Organisation and the cars became a little bigger and more comfortable. Remarkable fact: the MG Car Club is almost as old as the make itself (founded in 1930).
