MGA 1500cc 1958 Model

The MGA design dates back to 1951 when MG designer Syd Enever created a streamlined body for George Philips' TD Le Mans car. A prototype was built and shown to the BMC chairman Leonard Lord. He 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.

Three prototypes were built in 1953 with the code name EX 182 and were officially competition cars, destined to appear at the Le Mans 24 hour race in June 1955. The Le Mans outing proved successful, the team met with reasonable results with two cars coming fifth and sixth, the third car driven by Dick Jacobs however crashed in the aftermath of a disaster which killed over eighty people, when a Mercedes left the track ploughing into spectators.

The MGA finally went into production from 1955 to 1962. The MGA replaced the MG TF 1500 Midget and represented a complete styling break from MG's earlier sports cars. The MGA was an immediate success with a large percentage finding their way into the American market. This was obviously due to the fact that the car broke new ground in terms of styling, performance and safety, being more civilized and smoother than the TF. The MGA was deemed the best car Abingdon ever turned out.

Out of the 101,081 produced between 1955 and 1962 only 5815 were UK registered (less than six per cent) and over 81,000 went to the US.

The South African- assembled MGAs are distinguished by a "Motor Assemblies Limited" plate with a code affixed to the engine bay of all vehicles assembled at the plant. The example we have is a South African assembled RHD example and has the history of being the 474 car assembled out of the total 752 units.

The "big" Austin-Healeys, long the popular mid-range choice -- especially in late six-cylinder 3000 MkIII form -- have gone from relatively affordable to big money in the last five years. And with the Healey's rise, so rises the price and popularity of its four-cylinder BMC stablemate, the beautiful MGA roadster.

The car has had a nut and bolt restoration with all parts being replaced with brand new parts imported from the UK. The roof is brand new including the folding mechanism imported as well. The car has been expertly sprayed using the original MG White colour codes. I have sold many MGA’s over the years and this must be one of the finest.
