MGA: Buying guide and review (1955-1962)

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.
1961: The 1600 MkII arrives, offered as a roadster or coupe in standard or De Luxe specifications.
1962: The final MGA is built.

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.

    We are very pleased to offer this absolutely stunning MGA Coupe for sale Blessed with one of the most shapely silhouettes of any car ever produced, the MGA was a radical departure for MG, leaving behind the traditional ash-framed bodywork of its predecessor, the immortal ‘T-Series’. Although retaining a traditional chassis, the separate body also served as a rigid structure, its triangulated bulkhead design ensuring that it didn’t suffer from the dreaded scuttle-shake that can even be found on convertibles produced to this day. The precise rack-and-pinion steering and its lively B-series engine gave a top speed just shy of the magic ton and they sold like hot-cakes. Over 95% were exported, most bound for the US where they found willing buyers looking for something more sophisticated than their softly-sprung home-grown sports cars. This pristine RHD Coupe was one of the few that remained for the home market. Completed on 29th September 1961, it was despatched from the works on 4th October and first registered on 20th October to its first owner who kept the car until his death in around 2013. The second owner, purchased the Coupe as a retirement project through Panorama Bay in July 2014 and set to work. He totally dismantled the vehicle and commenced a ground-up renovation of the car. The results speak for themselves and its professionally applied top coat of the original Chariot Red positively gleams. Many new parts were used throughout, all fully detailed in bills and photographs on file. A lovely wood rim steering wheel has also been fitted although the original is also included if preferred. The Heritage Certificate confirms that this car is completely correct This beautifully presented car is as clean and well prepared underneath as it is on top and close inspection is highly recommended.

    1960 MGA Twin Cam Roadster s/n Yd3-1991 Black with Green Leather Interior The MGA was introduced in 1955 as a welcome and modernized version of the dated MG TF. The newly designed body was a bit of a revelation, particularly considering the price, features, and the now stylish open two-seat, streamlined bodywork. Combined with reliable mechanicals and superb road manners, the MGA became an instant success. The newly designed frame, low profile B-series engine, and refined body fixtures combined to deliver a low profile sports car, available for a mere 1000 pounds sterling. Sales were brisk in the UK but considerably impressive in the US where sports cars were beginning to make inroads into the growing American landscape. Initially offered as a 1500cc producing 68hp, attempts were made to boost the power output with mixed results. Though a 1600cc version engine later developed was making 78hp, it was clear that in order to perform at world class levels, serious engineering had to result. The first prototype twin cam engines were developed to meet the demand for more horsepower while retaining manufacturing commonality with the B-series engine. Of course a great deal of engineering w

    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.
