Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1955, the MGA was a revolutionary British roadster sportscar. The MGA, which replaced MG’s T-series, had a low, sleek and beautiful body and the car was produced between 1955 and 1962. Together, more than 100,000 cars were built in Abingdon, New South Wales, England, and Australia. Most of the cars were sold to the United States and Europe outside Great Britain. The car was successful on both the Le Mans and Nascar racetracks, and its driving characteristics garnered praise from ordinary consumers and world stars. The MG MGA became a classic whose role in the birth of the British roadster sports car concept cannot be underestimated.

This first generation MGA has been restored and its original 1500cc BMC A engine has been updated with BMC 1800cc B series engine. The motor is the advanced version of the B series, equipped with 5 frame bearings. The car’s electrics have also been renewed.

The body of the car have been refurbished and the body painted in MG’s original Orient Red shade. The interior, including the carpets and seats, have been renewed with original shapes and colors, with black leatherette and red strips.

The steering wheel is updated with wooden Nardi and the tailgate is equipped with a luggage rack.

The car’s wheels have been refurbished and the rear wheels have a slightly wider lip than the original. The pill capsules are new, as well as the A100 Rollster classic tires manufactured in Finland by Nokia, have been renewed recently.

Original side windows, canvas roof and plenty of MGA spare parts included. Also a set of original MGA steel rims included if wanted.

The car’s engine runs and pulls excellent, and the gearbox works exactly flawlessly. The bigger B-series engine makes the light sports car a significantly quicker and also enables highway speeds at roadtrips.

The car has valid Mot/Tüv inspection until 07 / 2023 and it is ready to be enjoyed.

The car is located in Vantaa. Presentations by agreement.
