MG 2.6-Litre WA range, introduced in late 1938, supplemented the existing Midget, 1.5- and 2-Litre models. It is, in fact, based on the 2-Litre SA (1936-39) with the same wheelbase but has a wider body and a 2561 -cc (vs. 2322-cc) OHV six-cylinder engine which develops 100 bhp at 4400 rpm. Some 370 were produced, with Saloon and Tickford Folding Head Foursome bodywork, although a Charlesworth Tourer was advertised also.
