Vintage MG SA bought for £30 fetches £60,000 at auction

A vintage car bought for just £30 more than 40 years ago has sold at auction for nearly £60,000.

The 1937 MG sportscar was lying half derelict in the back of a motor dealers in Beaulieu, Hampshire, when Lob Vinycomb bought it in 1966.

One of around only 70 MG SA drophead coupes left in the world, Mr Vinycomb sold it in 1970 for £70.

Mr Vinycomb has been reunited with the car after his brother Andy rediscovered it at the same dealership early this month.
