The MG Car Company was founded back in 1920 by Cecil Kimber. The company is also known as Morris Garage has built many great cars over the years and has had some success in racing too with the MGA Twin-Cam. The Twin Cam motor was produced in small number but didn’t make it into all MGs of the late 50s and early 60s. Instead, MG fitted their trusty 1500 and 1600 cc pushrod engines to their cars of the time.
One of these cars was the MGA and the replacement for the MG TF. The run of the MGA was from 1955 to 1962. Like most cars there was a development and changes were made over its lifespan give us the Mark II with an increased engine size to 1622cc from the MGA 1600 boosting the horsepower to 90bhp. Other feature changes for the Mark II were the grill and taillights.
Now to the Car on hand, our little Red Headed MGA MK II Coupe. She has been completely restored from the ground up and is a real pleasure to behold and drive. She looks absolutely stunning in her red paintwork and the tan interior is such a good match. Besides looking good she drives very well which is to be expected if you know MG’s. The 1622cc engine starts up with ease and pulls well. The 4-speed box takes a little getting used to with its non-synchro first gear but from there the shift is direct and sporty. The steering is direct and tight, matched to the restored suspension she is like driving a new version of an MGA.
We could go on and on about the car and the styling and how great this example is, but we feel you should come in and view her for yourself
Interesting trade-in’s will be considered.
