As GIs came back from Europe following WWII, they brought with them a taste for small European roadsters that had yet to hit US soils. These cars were lightweight, had small, four cylinder engines, and could easily outhandle the US competition of which there was not much. The idea was lightweight and fast and it worked for the British Motor Corporation.
Built by the British Motor Corp. between 1955 and 1962, a total of 101,081 MGA’s were produced. Of this total, 20,571 were produced in 1957. The MGA became the best selling British sports car in the USA for its time, and today, remains among the most popular British sports cars of all time.
Finished in gorgeous white over a black interior with a black top, this 1957 MGA has undergone a restoration which included a thorough going through of both the mechanical and cosmetic aspects of the car. The results are a wonderful driving little roadster, perfect for local shows and reliable enough for touring use. The car has excellent paint, new chrome, a detailed engine compartment and tidy interior. Where else can you find such lines on a car in this price range?
The 1,500 CC engine pulls strong all the way up to redline and the transmission is smooth through the gears. The car is stable at 70 MPH plus out on the highway and equally capable on the on side roads. The brakes are right and the suspension is ready for your twisty back roads.
The MGA is freshly serviced and ready for your stable. Don’t miss out on this wonderful little roadster.
