This beautiful blue 1953 MG sparkles and shines in the mid day sun. The rich history of MG began nearly 90 years ago in 1924. The famous initials were chosen by Cecil Kimber, the founder of MG. Kimber chose the letters as a "nod" to William Morris, his employer, and the owner of Morris Garages. Kimber, didn't just come up with the name. He also created the first line of MGs. He started out by fitting coach-built tourer bodies to the Morris Cowley chassis, creating cars known as the Morris Garage Chummys. A few years later, in 1924, he designed the 14/28 Super Sports model, the first true MG, and the car that premiered the octagonal logo that has been used ever since.
An interesting little tidbit - The most famous MGC customer was HRH Prince Charles, who took delivery of his GT in 1969 (SGY 766F). He later passed this down to Prince William.
