The MG A, introduced in late 1955, brought MG into the modern streamlined era and coincided with its acquisition by British Motors Corporation. The streamlined aerodynamic body was a dramatic departure from MG's traditional design but contributed to updating its appearance, as well as improving its performance. Other attributes of the car made it a much better, faster, more comfortable car capable of competing with its British rivals. The new 1,489cc BMC B-series engine delivered 68 horsepower and powered a conventional chassis with independent front suspension and a live rear axle. The frame rails flared out to make room for lower seats. In mid-1959 MG increased the engine's displacement to 1,588cc. The added displacement and engine tuning brought the 1600's horsepower to 80. Front disc brakes were added and the side curtains were redesigned with sliding panels for better weather sealing, keeping the MG A competitive in a market that expected better performance and comfort. Nut and bolt restored just a few years ago, this red 1960 MG A has tan leather upholstery with a matching tan cloth top, silver painted steel wheels with black wall tires, sun visors, wind wings, black carpets, a carpeted trunk and a very attractive burl walnut instrument panel. A quality car throughout, its restoration was to very good driver standards with attractive paint, chrome, interior, and top. The engine compartment is orderly and clean without being overdone or loaded with fussy chrome accessories. It runs and drives even better than it looks and will give its next owner a taste of classic mid-century MG motoring.
