The MGA is a sports car that was produced by MG from 1955 to 1962. It replaced the MG TF 1500 and represented a complete styling break from MG's earlier sports cars. Announced on 26 September 1955 the car was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show. A total of 101,081 units were sold through the end of production in July 1962, the vast majority of which were exported. Only 5869 cars were sold on the home market.
In May 1959 the standard cars also received an updated engine, now at 1588 cc producing 79.5 bhp. At the front disc
brakes were fitted, but drums remained in the rear. Externally the car is very similar to the 1500 with differences including: amber or white front turn indicators shared with white parking lamps, separate stop/tail and turn lamps in the rear, and 1600 badging on the boot and the cowl. Approximately 31,501 were produced in less than three years.
A 1600 open car was tested by The Motor in 1959. It had a top speed of 96.1 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 13.3 seconds. A fuel consumption of 29.7 miles per gallon 24.7 mpg US was recorded.
This MGA with its cutdown speedster style windscreen displays the beautiful styling that makes it a real standout in the world of classic vintage sports cars. This MG is not a concours car nor is it for the purist with it's speedster windscreen and 1500cc motor but it will give you more pleasure than many, many other more expensive candidates. It does have the desirable front disc brakes and correct leather seats. The motor is very strong and has a great sports car exhaust note. There are side curtains, a tonneau cover, and top frame just in case someone would want to put it back in original form. Buy it and drive it for the enjoyment of driving and not just commuting!
