TRAVEL IN STYLE
In the early fifties many new sports cars were released with new models from Austin Healey and Triumph with the 100 and the TR2 respectively. Against this competition the MG T Type was looking decidedly old fashioned. In 1955 that was to change, with the introduction of the very pretty and up to date MGA with a modern BMC B series engine to compete for the sports car dollar in the lucrative American market.
This example is one of the last 1500cc cars assembled in Australia and has benefited from a recent refurbishment to suspension, brakes and paintwork. This car has been fitted with disc brakes as originally fitted to the later 1600 cars giving greater confidence in today's traffic. The weather equipment is in excellent condition and the car is still fitted with its original steering wheel giving a nice 1950's feel to the interior of the car. The original style 48 spoke wire wheels are in excellent condition and add to the lovely original feel of this car.
With world market prices on the rise for all of these classically styled fifties sports cars this vehicle represents an opportunity to own an Australian assembled MGA at a sensible price.
