The A was the car which put MG back on the map. It was pretty, it was contemporary, and it was fun. Top speed was 98 mph and 0 to 60 mph took 15.6 seconds, but raw performance figures are not the reason the MGA became the world’s most popular sports car. The A was an MG in the classic mode; the engineers at Abingdon took standard production parts and combined them in a way that made them special. The A was also the last MG with a separate chassis so a car as thoroughly restored as this one has no nasty, hidden, surprises.
This completely restored example was originally sold to America and then imported to Italy. It was rebuilt in 1996 and its condition is described as excellent. Finished in Old English White with black upholstery piped in white, it also has the desirable wire wheel option. This reliable classic is ready to be enjoyed and is lacking only an enthusiastic owner.
