After World War II, MG built pre-war cars rather longer than pretty much any other manufacturer, persisting with the upright T-series through 1955's TF 1500. MG's evolution in 1956 was dramatic, the envelope body, streamlined MG A with BMC B-series power. Remarkably for a fully-equipped roadster in the mid-Fifties the MG A was slightly lighter than its predecessor. With five more horsepower and a substantially more rigid frame structure its performance, handling and responsiveness offered great value. In late 1959 the engine size increased to 1,588cc in an evolved 80 horsepower 1600 model further improved with standard front disc brakes. Still a lightweight weighing under a ton, the MG A 1600 Roadster had performance, handling and responsiveness that was a bargain at its $2,444 price. This 1960 MG A 1600 roadster has been thoughtfully and accurately restored to showroom condition. Finished in Old English White with red leather upholstery, a red tonneau cover and equipped with a Tan vinyl soft top lined in Red cloth for extra insulation and sound attenuation. It has chrome wire wheels, a grille guard, tribar headlights, a chrome luggage rack, a wood accessory MG octagon badged shift knob, factory banjo spoke steering wheel, and a correct period Motorola AM radio. The engine bay is authentically detailed. It is done right without being overdone, a sterling example of the marque.
