The MGA is a sports car that was produced by MG from 1955 to 1962. The MGA replaced the MG TF and represented a complete styling break from MG’s earlier sports cars. Announced on 26 September 1955′ the car was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The optional front and rear bumpers (equipped with over-riders) fit extremely tight and show well. The weather-stripping is pliable, ith little or no signs of drying, earing or shrinkage.

The factory window skirts with sliding Plexiglas windows fit correctly and are in excellent condition.
Inside, he black leather front bucket seats and rear cargo compartment and all look great with no major signs of wear visible. The matching black door panels, arpet and dashboard are a striking contrast to the red exterior of the car and look fantastic.
