1958 MG MGA 1500This 1958 MGA is the quintessential British roadster that comes in a great color combo. Best of all, this iconic symbol of class and distinction can be had for basically the price of a Miata.
This car is an icon of the open road. It has long flowing fenders that would look great on a Cadillac, but instead they artfully draw on a svelte European body. And the fitment on this example is quite nice. The red paint has the right amount of gloss to show off these curves every time the sunshine finds the sheetmetal. Let's face it, you're going to want to be driving this MGA on every sunny day, anyway. The low-cut doors, movable windscreen, and sport wheels gives this one a true sports car heritage. And the full-length white racing stripe package really reinforces that image. But what really makes the MGA special is the touch of class that comes from plenty of brightwork on the wraparound chrome bumpers, polished wheel covers, and waterfall grille.
This comes with a soft top and side curtains, but really, we all know these were meant to be open to the world. That's why the interior was given a cool custom look. The white bucket seats with red piping goes nicely with the exterior color theme. Plus, it's a well-coordinated look inside and out with white door panels, white dash pad, and full red carpeting. These MGs are a great lesson in purist motoring, and the interior proves it. A grippy three-spoke steering wheel, clear Jaeger gauges, and a manual transmission - those are the true essentials you need. Your senses will go into overload as gaze at the classic dash panel finished in wood. Pull the start knob and then let the wind whip through the interior while you help fill it with the wonderful soundtrack from the motor.
The B-series engine is a robust powerplant. This was a popular motor in Europe, and parts are still easy to find and relatively inexpensive. The engine bay looks well maintained, and so you know this is the one you want for an easy jaunt down the open road. Everything from the dual SU carbs, to a smooth-shifting four-speed manual transmission is there to give you the proper sports car feeling. Plus, with the legendary nimble chassis and vintage-style wheels with more modern tires, you'll be able to feel why these are legendary backroad roadsters.
Beautiful, tasteful, and all-out fun to drive, this MGA is an amazing classic offered at a price that will have it leaving our showroom quickly. Call now!
