Classic Car Overview

This 1957 MG MGA is the quintessential fun British roadster that comes in a great color combo and is nicely documented. Its the kind of classic thats ideal when looking for one classic that you can collect, drive, and proudly park on a show field. There are a few body styles out there that make you say Wow! from the moment they come into view, and the MGA is in that very select class. The correct Glacier Blue paint was given a high quality, and there was a large overall investment in the restoration. Thats how you get such a glossy presentation on such well-done sheet metal. So the sunlight loves to radiate off the body as it showcases what makes the MGA an icon. Its in the long flowing fenders that help create the low-cut doorline, the aggressive rear fenders that kick up for the wheels, and the unmistakably smooth European trunk (boot) design. Theres shining brightwork everywhere from the curvy chrome bumpers to the waterfall grille. Plus, wire wheels with knock-off hubs were an option from the factory, and it just seems like a must-have to complete the iconic appearance. The British have always excelled at color combinations, and this interior proves it. The black is a tasteful but distinct contrast to the exterior blue and dash. Plus, the blue piping on the seats is a masterstroke of coordination with the gray body beading. So you have supple leather upholstery, newer carpeting, and interesting details, like the classic heater thats there for display. This has the best of classic motoring with a banjo-style sports steering wheel, clear British Jaeger gauges, and the crisp action of the gearstick. Its true purist motoring that will have you wanting to go for a drive every sunny day. And if you do ever get caught in the rain, the folding roof and side curtains are much more substantial than previous modes to keep you dry for the drive home. And for those sporting days, you have a full racing tonneau. It all fits in the extra tidy trunk. The engine bay has a show-ready style that comes for a proper investment. The bold red block looks great against the exterior blue, and everyone loves the detailed style of the twin SU carbs. And not only will this tidy look get plenty of attention, but it also makes it easy to see the body tag and matching motor tag. The 1500cc B-series motor is a robust powerplant. This was a popular motor in Europe, and parts are still easy to find and relatively inexpensive. And when a car is maintained to look this good, it also is kept correctly to be a strong runner. The undercarriage photos prove there was a proper investment over every inch of this car during its restoration. It also makes for a car you can confidently enjoy. And the four-speed manual gearbox combines with the legendary nimble steering to really let you feel why these are legendary back road roadsters. This is a true drivers MGA, but like any good Brit, it also comes with pedigree. There is a certificate from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust documenting this cars early build distinct color as well as other documentation. Beautiful, tasteful, and a superior experience behind the wheel to even its siblings, this MGA is an amazing classic offered at a price that will have it driving out of our showroom quickly.
