ACE WHEEL DISC
For 12 pound 10 shilling fully painted Ace wheel discs could be had when ordering a new MG VA. For a little more you could have them fully polished or painted with a chrome ring.
It did a lot to enhance the looks of an MG VA, although many people regard it as not done for a sporting car. Abingdon was convinced it looked better and virtually all factory entered show and rally VA's had them fitted.
My VA had them fitted at some stage, but they were taken of and left behind in a garden shed in Sidcup.
I would like to refit them. Have now found one original disc and desperately looking for the other ones.
The number A.423.B is stamped in the backside of the hub. The screw lock ring says ACE patent Super Discs
So if you come accross some which would fit a 19inch wheel (overall diameter slightly under 20 inch) and look similar to the one above do not hesitate to contact me.
