The MG A was introduced by MG at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1955 as the successor to the MG TF 1500 Midget. The lines and shapes were completely separate from MG’s previously produced sports cars. Yet the apple did not fall far from the tree; the MG A drove like a real English sports car. With the modified frame (body under the frame instead of on top), this Brit sent an anabolics scone. When the last A in England rolled off the band in 1962, the production number had risen to 101,081 units. Of these more than one hundred thousand units, only 5,869 were built for their home country. This is the lowest percentage of ‘people staying at home’ of all British-produced cars.
This MG A is a Mark I 1600, which means that the engine power has 81 HP. This power gain was due to larger valves and renewed combustion chambers. In addition to the increase in horses in the stable, the differential on the rear axle was also replaced by a version with larger gears. This ensured that the MG has slightly longer gears and therefore runs more comfortably at a higher speed. In addition to the technical changes, the Mark I also shared its rear lights with another British icon; the Morris Mini. In the end, only 8,198 units of the Mark I convertible were built.
The MG is executed in the beautiful Orient Red, which is fully complimented by the black leather upholstery with red trim. The car is in good condition and technically in good condition.
