MGA (1955-1962) CAR HISTORY

Car review on MGA

The A was the first modern post-war MG. As the first new MG produced after the merger of Nuffield and Austin, it was also the first to use the corporate mechanical parts: much of the drive train was derived from the Austin A50 saloon. Its pretty pinched-waist body was derived from a special TD raced at Le Mans and was based on an enormously strong box-section chassis. Some said it was too strong and unnecessarily heavy, but it was certainly rigid.


There was nothing groundbreaking about the suspension, with its front wishbones and leaf-spring rear beam axle, yet the handling of the A was more than a match for its contemporary Triu mph and Austin Healey rivals. Bolt-on steel wheels were the standard offering, with centre-lock wires as an option. On 1489cc and 72 bhp from its B Series engine, it wasn't wildly quick, but 95 mph (152 kph) was respectable, as was the potential 30mpg.


It was joined by a handsome coupe version in 1956 and in 1958 by the exciting twin-cam with its Harry Weslake-designed twin overhead-camshaft 1588cc engine. With 108 bhp, top speed went up to 110 mph (177 kph). It was a highly desirable property but the engine — based on a modified B series block — had a poor reliability record, with a reputation for burning pistons. It was available in coupe and roadster form and could be recognized by its handsome Dunlop centre-lock lightweight steel wheels. Dunlop disc brakes on all wheels were standard. High prices and its dodgy reputation kept sales low. BMC killed this most exotic of MGs in 1960.
By that time the standard MGA had become the 1600, with 80 bhp, disc front brakes and genuine 100 mph (160 kph) ability. The only outward difference, aside from badging, was the separate rear indicators. Optional was the Deluxe, with the standard pushrod engine but the disc brakes and centre-lock wheels of the slow-selling twin-cam.


The final MkII 1600 of 1961 had a slightly bigger bore 1622cc engine, pushing the power output to 86 bhp. You can identify an MkII by its recessed front grille and horizontal rear lights. Production finished in 1962, giving way to the unitary MGB, certainly a more modern MG than the A but not such a pretty one.
