In 1923 Cecil Kimber (a former General Manager at Morris) set up to build a sportier car using Morris parts. MG was Morris Garage.The company grew in leaps and bounds by the late 1920s when the M type, which was then developed into the C type race car. Then the myriad J and P series were produced. They were all very good looking light sporty machines that were relatively affordable. My the mid 1930's William Morris sold his stake in the MG company to Morris Motors, racing was stopped and the company concentrating on the sales of MG road going cars. These were the T series or cars starting with the TA Midget, as well as a foray into the "Luxury" market with the VA and SA and WA models which was stopped by the war. The T types (TA and TB) led to the TC postwar, followed by the first independently front suspension MG, the TD of 1950, followed by the more modern styled TF which finished production in 1954. The company started afresh with the MGA in 1955 which was immediately successful and was evolved continually throughout it's production until 1961, until the advent of the monocoque MGB in 1962. The MGC got introduced in 1967 with a 6 cylinder 3 litre engine, when no more could be reasonably extracted from the 4 cylinder road engine. This was followed in 1973 by the MGB GT V8 using the alloy 3.5 litre Rover V8 engine. But lets not forget the little Midget which took over from the Austin-Healey, of which some quarter million were sold.
