The 'L' type Magna Introduced in 1933 was a direct development of the
'F' type. The first prototype was an F1 Tourer (F0946) renumbered L0251
by the MG factory. F1467 was also converted into L0252 as the second
'L' type prototype. The first 30 'L' types were possibly 'F' type chassis too!
The 'L' type had the 12" brakes of the 'F2/3' with a rear chassis extension
(except 2-seaters), but had the smaller capacity and more powerful 'K'
type engine. The 'F' and 'L' types share many features, as well as general
dimensions, such as the uniquely sloping radiator grill - although the 'L'
type had different headlight supports and swept wings as standard.
