MG - MG N Type

The MG N Type was only in production for 2 years and available from late 1934. The engine used was the 6 cylinder 1271cc K Type overhead camshaft engine, fitted with twin carburettors. The taller body gave more driver protection and a departure from previous Magnettes was dispensing with the slab tank, which gave extra room for the 4 seats. During 1934 the NB became available, which is distinctive in having vertical slats to the radiator. A team of special race cars ran in the 1934 TT (known as the NE), a few cars also being built subsequently for Trialling. These MG N Type Magnettes were the last MG's to be fitted with an overhead camshaft engine. Production ceased in 1936.

Both the MG NA and MG NB Magnette originally had the 18" wheel size fitted with 4.75x19 tyres at the factory. Blockley makes a superb 450/500x18 tyre with a correct period tyre offering exceptional handling - see full details of this 450/500x18 tyre at the link below:
