“The First of a New Line” – That was the marketing approach for MG as it rolled out its fresh MGA to the public in 1955. These cars were vastly different from any MG prior featuring a wider chassis, lower seating position, a more powerful “B-series” motor etc. it also features independent suspension and rack and pinion steering. The body was a much cleaner design sitting lower and wider with beautiful consistent body lines and a teethy front grill.

The highly original 1956 MGA offered here is an excellent running and driving example that retains an outstanding core structure as it is apparent that the body has never been taken off the frame. The motor has been through a recent top end freshening, new plugs, wires, distributer and new brake slave cylinder. The body, although not without some bumps and bruises, remains extremely solid and rust free and rides on optional wire wheels. Evidence points to one older repaint from its original factory, “Tyrolite Green” to “Old English White”. The interior appears to be very original and features its original “banjo” style steering wheel and black seats with white piping. The carpets are in good condition and may have been replaced at one time. The engine starts right up every time with no smoke, the car possesses good acceleration, smooth shifting, good braking and a tight suspension. The car also has a new convertible top and spare tire with original spare cover. The MGA offered here possesses many opportunities as it is presently of good driver quality vehicle with a very solid frame and body structure, and confident mechanicals. The car is complete and can be driven the way it is or it is a candidate to restore to a high level. Either way, an opportunity at the price offered here.
