1957 MGA 1500 Roadster- The MGA design dates back to 1952. when MG designer Syd Enever created a streamlined body for George Philips' TD Le Mans car. The problem with this car was the high seating position of the driver because of the limitations of using the TD chassis. A new chassis was designed with the side members further apart and the floor attached to the bottom rather than the top of the frame sections. A prototype was built and shown to the BMC chairman Leonard Lord. He turned down the idea of producing the new car as he had just signed a deal with Donald Healey to produce Austin-Healey cars two weeks before. Falling sales of the traditional MG models caused a change of heart. and the car. initially to be called the UA-series. was brought back. As it was so different from the older MG models it was called the MGA. the "first of a new line" to quote the contemporary advertising. There was also a new engine available. therefore the car did not have the originally intended XPAG unit but was fitted with the BMC corporate B-Series type allowing a lower bonnet line. The MGA had no exterior door handles. It was a body-on-frame design and used the straight-4 "B series" engine from the MG Magnette saloon driving the rear wheels through a 4-speed gearbox. Suspension was independent with coil springs and wishbones at the front and a rigid axle with semi-elliptic springs at the rear. Steering was by rack and pinion. The car was available with either wire-spoked or steel-disc road wheels.

Finished in Alamo Beige. this British classic is the recipient of a body off frame restoration completed in 2010. It shows like new with its Black canvas top and correct Black leather interior. This beauty is equipped with a 1500 CC / 79. 55 HP 4 cylinder engine and manual transmission. Correct original engine and drive train have seen only 60 miles since completion. If you are looking to buy a MGA to show or drive cross-country the day it arrives. this is your new baby. Features and options include; Crane Cams Fireball XR700 Ignition. AM/FM/CD Stereo (w/Aux Jack). Black Full Tonneau. Woodgrain Dash & Shift Knob. Chrome Bumpers. Chrome Mirrors. Chrome Exhaust Tips. Plexiglass Side Curtain. Tire Tools. 15" Factory Rims. New 165/80/R15 Tires! Hagerty Guide currently books this roadster at $44. 00 and KBB comes in at $40. 00 even. You won't find a better deal on a nicer MGA!
