Introduced in 1955 as a replacement for the ailing TF Midget, the MGA won instant acclaim. Its modern, streamlined appearance and excellent handling marked the start of a new, highly successful era for the MG name.
Drawing on contemporary road tests, David G Styles relates how the MGA 1500 was seen as the saviour of the MG name - with its excellent road-holding, braking and sheer performance. It was available in both roadster and coupe forms, and there was also a Twin-Cam. The 100,000th MGA left Abingdon in March 1962, but was soon replaced by the legendary MGB. This essential guide provides full specifications for each model, details of the works MGA's as well as production models, and advice on buying and owning a car.
