- the new MG Sports Sedan. Up front two genuine sports car bucket seats. In back-a roomy sedan seat, as big as a bathtub-a seat that comfortably holds all the kids, all the packages, all the cats and all the dogs. Yes sir-this new MG is a true sedan-a 5 passenger sedan, with 80% of the car's length devoted to passengers and luggage. (That's because the engine sits crosswise instead of lengthwise.) And it's got the heart and spunk of a sports car. The world's number one competitive engine - an MG engine . .. Dual carbure tion ... 4-speed stick shift... Crunchproof synchromesh gear box... Speeds in excess of 80 mph. But in big city traffic, in stop-and-go driv ing, it's a true economy sedan, getting 24 to30mpg.Anditcanparkinaslot.Ithas 2.7 times as much visibility as the best selling import, and has curved side win dows for maximum shoulder room. Service and maintenance are at an absolute mini mum. It's a family sedan that'll do all the chores, make all the calls and pick up the kids at school. It's a little giant that the ladies will find obedient, faithful, quiet and unbelievably easy to handle. Ah, but on the road... when you have it all to yourself . . when you're alone and you want to know that you're really driving an MG ... feel it flatten hills, corner like a cat, hug the road at high speeds ... sports car braking system (disc & drum combina tion) gives you safer, surer stops. (Few all out sports cars handle as well or can take as much punishment.) This car, this MG Sports Sedan-it's not just a new model; it's a new concept-an economical family sedan of sporting char acter. A car with a revolutionary fluid sus pension system (no springs, no shock absorbers.) A smooth-riding car with front wheel drive-where the engine pulls in- stead of pushes, giving it greater stability on slippery roads and sharp turns. A car that anyone can drive with comfort and confidence. A car that's bigger on the inside than it appears on the outside, built by one of the world's oldest and most renowned automobile manufacturers, superbly de signed in true British Sports Car tradition. A car that is the new size of luxury and the new look of performance. A car that is, all at once, a proper gentleman, a sporting spirit and an elegant rascal.
