MGA: Buying guide and review (1955-1962) Classic and Performance Car
MGA Twin Cam roadster MGA Twin Cam roadster rear MGA Twin Cam roadster interior MGA Twin Cam engine
MG has made some cracking cars since it set up in business in 1924. Arguably the best-looking of them all is the MGA, which ushered in a new era for the Abingdon-based company when it replaced the ancient T-Series in 1955. Sleek and beautiful, the MGA isn’t the fastest sportscar around, but it is superb to drive thanks to its agility, lively performance, sweet gearchange and light steering.
 
To look at the MGA, you'd never guess that under the relatively modern and sleek exterior sits many of the same mechanical parts as the TF, including the 1489cc B-Series engine and four-speed gearbox along with drum brakes all round. It's this technical simplicity that really makes the TF a joy to own. 
 
Now the MGA has been out of production for many decades, it’s well served by clubs and specialists that make the owning process that much easier. With a lively social scene and ready parts availability, whether you’re buying your first classic car or adding to a collection, the MGA makes a huge amount of sense. 
 
It's amazing just how good the parts availability is, with many companies out there specialising in reproducing many of the interior trim items and mechanical parts that wear out over the years, making restoration generally very easy.
 
Which one to buy?
 
There are more choices to make than you might think, as there were 1500, 1600 and Twin-Cam engines along with roadster and coupe bodystyles. Open-topped MGAs are worth a lot more than their closed counterparts, but there’s little difference in values between the 1.5 and 1.6-litre editions. The Twin-Cam fetches a lot more, but they’re also far rarer and running costs are much higher too, particularly if you need to undertake an engine rebuild.
 
Because roadsters are worth more than coupes, they tend to be the subject of the best restorations – which is why finding a truly superb coupe can be a thankless task. It doesn’t help that restoring a closed car also costs significantly more than reviving an open one.
 
Just 6,000 MGAs were sold new in the UK, of the 101,082 cars built – more than 80,000 went to the US. A lot of left-hand drive MGAs have now been converted to right-hand drive and these cars can be worth less than genuine UK models. However, the conversion is straightforward and there’s no need to mess with the bodywork (a new dashboard, steering rack and pedal set is all that’s needed), so problems are unlikely.
 
Finding an original unmolested car might be a bit more of a problem though, as the vast majority of MGAs have undergone some modifications, replacement mechanical components such non-matching engines or upgrades. This isn't a problem if you're looking for a car to enjoy, but as a collectors' item, finding a completely original and matching numbers MGA is often a difficult task. 
 
If you’re buying a project tread very carefully. These cars are more complicated than you might think, especially the bodywork,  and restoration on an amateur basis can lead to disaster – but buy a good MGA and you’ll never look back.

Common problems
 
• If buying an ex-California car that was imported years ago, don’t assume it’s still rust-free, as many such cars are now rotten. Start by checking the sills and A-posts which are tricky to repair. The wings rot too and while replacements are available they’re tricky to fit. Also check the door bottoms and boot floor.
 
• The door, bonnet and boot lid are aluminium over a steel frame. The latter two feature a wooden stiffener which rots while electrolytic corrosion is a problem too.
 
• Accident damage isn’t rare, so check the panel gaps, the panels for rippling and the chassis too. A sharp knock will distort the chassis beyond repair, so analyse the front and rear chassis legs for distortion.
 
• The B-series engine is easily rebuilt and durable if maintained; used replacements are easily sourced too, if not necessarily from another MGA. Look for blue exhaust smoke signifying wear and expect oil pressure of 50-60psi at 3000rpm.
 
• Cylinder heads can crack, leading to coolant loss and overheating, so check for signs of a blown head gasket.
 
• Oil leaks because the scroll oil thrower on the back of the crankshaft wears, as does the block that it acts upon. Once worn a new block and crank could be needed, but an oil seal conversion is an option.
 
• The twin-cam engine is fragile and very expensive to rebuild; everything is unique to this powerplant. Amateur rebuilds can create all sorts of problems, so see who has done any maintenance.
 
• Because the gearbox is weak, most have been overhauled already, often with used parts which leads to premature failure. Check second gear synchro for baulking and listen for chattering in first and reverse.
 
• Diff casings get damaged when the hub nuts are left loose. They need an eight-sided 1 61/64” socket which is unusual – but available. Loose nuts lead to the bearing spinning against the axle casing, damaging both, so look for signs of the diff leaking oil onto the brakes.
 
• The trunnions need greasing annually, but they’re often overlooked, which leads to kingpin wear and MoT failure. Also look for leaking lever arm dampers – another MoT failure point.
 
• Cheap rear springs are common; they provide the wrong ride height, destroying the ride and handling. Sometimes 10-inch springs are fitted up front, in place of the correct 9-inch items. These spoil the handling too.
 
• The steel wheels can crack around the mounting holes, while wire wheels can suffer from worn splines and rusty spokes. Some owners fit 72-spoke wheels, when the narrower 60-spoke items look more authentic.
 
Model history
 
1955: MGA 1500 roadster goes on sale.
1956: MGA coupe arrives.
1958: Twin-cam debuts, in roadster or coupe forms.
1959: MGA 1600 MkI replaces the 1500 edition, in roadster and coupe forms.
1960: The 1600 De Luxe appears, while the twin-cam is killed off. The De Luxe uses the Twin Cam’s chassis, with disc brakes all round; this is now the most sought after A after the Twin Cam.

Summary and prices
 
For what is actually quite a desirable and iconic British sports car, the MGA is actually still relatively affordable. While projects are a bit of a risky proposition, £3000-£4000 is enough to find a coupe, while roadsters tend to cost about £6000-£7000. While some prefer the coupe's looks (and stiffer body) there is a tough decision to make, as a roadster is much cheaper to restore than a coupe, and will be worth more when it's done, making quality coupe restorations harder to justify. 
 
Cars that perhaps require a little bit of fettling, but not quite a full restoration, then budged upwards of £8000 for a coupe and £12,500 for a roadster. You should obviously use caution while looking at cheaper cars, especially coupes, as could end up needing a full restoration anyway due to poor quality work.
 
Increase your budget to £20,000 and you are looking at good condition roadsters, or the very best coupe models. For a  top condition roadster, then be prepared to shell out more than £27,000. 
 
If it’s a Twin Cam that you fancy, open cars top out somewhere around the £32,000 mark, with closed models still worth around 25 per cent less. Average examples are £13,000-£22,000 for a drophead or £10,000-£17,000 for a fixed-head.

    MGA Roadster Fully Restored and probably one of the finest examples available We see many MGA roadsters but very few of this quality, it has covered just 5400miles since being restored in 1999 and still presenting flawlessly, a real testament to its restorer. . This MGA has been maintained without regard to cost for the last 26 years. Key points British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate of manufacture showing it is finished in its factory colours Only 2 owners since being fully restored in 1990, current owner for 12 years Summer use only with only 6,500 miles since being fully restored in 1990 International Concourse finalist Comprehensive history file, including photographs and invoices for restoration and servicing since 1990 Previously owned by British Touring Car racing driver Vince Woodman Unleaded conversion She came off the MG production line on 7 July 1959 and was exported to North America on 8 July 1959 as a LHD car, finished in Old English white with black interior and grey weather equipment. Purchased by British Touring Car racing driver Vince Woodman at the end of 1989. The import documentation confirms the car was residing in the British Virgin Islands and its body colour had been changed to red. The new owner had purchased the car with the intention of entering it for Concourse competition. Consequently, it was subjected to a full nut and bolt restoration by Jaguar E-Type specialist Stephen R Hather. At this time, the car was converted from LHD to RHD. The car, now registered VMW 3, was entered in Concourse and reached the International Final of the Benson & Hedges Classics Concourse in September 1991. Following showing in many Concourse events, MGA No. 71539 was restored again after just 1,100 miles in 1998/9. The speedometer was replaced at this time and is currently showing 5,400 miles. The car was purchased by the previous owner in September 2005. Since then it has been keep in a dry heated and dehumidified garage, serviced regularly and used very lightly for summer runs in dry weather only. When this owner moved from the UK to Czech Republic, he took the car with him and it was re-registered as a Czech Old-timer on 5 May 2009 with the registration number 01V 2800. As offered, MGA No. 71539 is period correct in original factory colours. The only changes to the original specification have been the addition of a Chrome boot rack (1990 restoration), fitting of an OE specification front anti roll bar and the fabrication of a manifold heat shield to prevent fuel evaporation, a common problem with MGA’s. The most desirable of colour combinations, having the expensive and rare Moss steering wheel really sets this car apart from others. Full wet weather equipment and tool roll The body lines and paint finish are incredibly well detailed so early viewing is highly recommended Currently being re-registered with DVLA Export enquiries welcome Explore your purchasing power through flexible payment plans designed specifically for this sector

    The MGA is a sports car produced by MG division of the British Motor Corporation from 1955 to 1962. The MGA replaced the older T-type cars and represented a complete styling break from the older vehicles. The car was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show of 1955. It was replaced by the MGB when production ceased in July 1962. Through that time, BMC sold 101,081 units, the vast majority of which were exported with only 5869 cars sold on the home market, the highest export percentage of any British car. The 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. Lord 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 mind and the car, init

  • 1962 MG A Mark II Deluxe Coupe

    POA POA

    This “Deluxe” model has the distinction of being one of the rarest MG’s, and one of the prettiest sports cars ever made. Blessed with delicate, flowing lines, the MGA's endearing form is the reason behind its magnetic appeal. We purchased it from its 2nd owner, who had only owned it from late 2013 until now. The original owner passed away, but had used it for his daily transportation where he lived. The 2nd owner did not drive it very much as he was too big for this car, and thus it was passed along to our care. It displays nice patina, and is in its original color combination of Chariot Red over Black. It would benefit from a cosmetic restoration, but it still shows well today. It comes complete with its: original Drivers Handbooks, BMC Maintenance Covenant, Accessories book, several MG magazines, the original Bill of Sale, a file of receipts, its tools, and a jack. You are welcome to buy the car “as is”, or commission Classic Showcase to restore it for you in any color combination you wish, and with which ever amenities your desire.

    This outstanding MGA 1500 Roadster was exported from the Abingdon factory to South Africa in 1957 and is an original RHD example. In 1993 the MGA was subject of a body off rebuild to show standard condition and then placed on exhibition in a Port Elizabeth motor museum for many years. In 2000 the MGA sold to a West Sussex Country Hotel owner who purchased the car whilst on holiday in South Africa. The car spent twelve years with its first UK owner and since 2012 has been owned by one of our regular customers in Scotland. Since rebuild the MGA has only covered 2500 miles and has arrived with us in exceptional condition. We have photographs and documentation confirming the MGA was stripped down to the bare chassis and rebuilt from the ground up. The body was sandblasted, fitted with various new body panels and floor panels replaced. The body was re-aligned, gaps set and prepared for a full re-paint in Orient Red. All chrome work was replaced, the dashboard re-furbished, new lights and windscreen glass fitted and the upholstery beautifully re-trimmed in leather. The MGA was fitted with full weather equipment to include tonneau cover and wheels were re-furbished and tyres replaced. The
