When the MGA arrived in 1955, it must have come as quite a shock to MG aficionados who had become used to the pre-war look of the company’s sports cars. Even the revamped TF left nothing to doubt about its 1930’s-style design. The MGA was a complete departurein styling for MG. It’s beautiful streamlined body was right up to the minute in terms of appearance. On it’s launch the car was extremely well received, which was no doubt helped by its previous competition successes, and it’s impressive performance in standard road-going form. It also offered very good value for money in the MG tradition and it sold very well, with a large number going to the USA where it did much to revive MG’s flagging reputation.
This 1962 MGA Roadster was stripped of its original British powerplant and brought back to life with American Power. This beautiful streamlined body now packs an American powerplant capable of doing destruction. The ULTIMATE BRITISH HOT ROD!
