The car initially was to be called the UA-series. As it was so different from the older MG models it was called the MGA. the "first of a new line" to quote the contemporary advertising. There was also a new engine available and was fitted with the BMC corporate B-Series type allowing a lower bonnet line. The MGA convertible had no exterior door handles. It was a body-on-frame design and used the straight-4 "B series" engine from the MG Magnette saloon driving the rear wheels through a 4-speed gearbox. Suspension was independent with coil springs and wishbones at the front and a rigid axle with semi-elliptic springs at the rear. Steering was by rack and pinion. The car was available with either wire-spoke or steel-disc road wheels. Lockheed hydraulic drum brakes were used on all wheels. This MGA was shipped to the US as a LHD North American Export Specification vehicle. In 1987 it was purchased by the previous owner. It was then the car was destined for a concours frame off restoration. The Roadster retained its rust free original body panels. It has gone through a complete restoration both cosmetically and mechanically. It is finished in the original Glacier Blue with the Gray interior along with new gray wool carpet. The MGA is a complete matching numbers sports car. This is truly an exceptional Roadster both mechanically and cosmetically.
