After an hour googling pictures etc, have decided this is definitely a Tickford-bodied Drophead Coupe, not a Charlesworth Tourer which was different shape (eg cut-down doors etc). Both versions were officially offered by MG and available on VA and SA, alongside the saloon - http://www.svwregister.co.uk/car_profiles.htm . Seems rear-mounted exposed (or covered) spare is less common than vertical mount on front wings or concealed hatch at rear under small boot, but some examples found for both VA and SA - eg this SA - can't find a good VA picture with same.

MG SVW Production Figures (DHC = Tickford, Tourer = Charlesworth) from http://www.svwspares.co.uk/cars.htm

DHC Saloon Tourer
SA 696 1945 90
VA 564 1238 591
WA 86 265 9

Approximate Survival
DHC Saloon Tourer
SA 93 223 23
VA 89 116 187
WA 25 34 1

So calling it SA for slightly higher production and more pictures online with exposed spare. But VA still a live possibility. Not a WA - bigger with longer bonnet and was 1938+.
