'Ol' Speckly 'en' was a 14/28 used as a factory run about, noted by the special speckled fabric covering. This car eventually contributed to the name of a beer "Old Speckled Hen" brewed for the 50th aniversary of the MG Car Company in 1974 (and continuing to be brewed today). The flat nose radiator was introduced in 1927, and more than 1200 cars were built in five years.
