1960 MGA 1600 Roadster – current ownership for 25 years

The replacement for the MG TF appeared in September 1955 in the form of the curvaceous all new MGA.  The early versions were powered by a 1500cc engine, however, this was increased to 1.6 litre in May 1959 along with the fitment of disc brakes at the front.

Under the up-to-the minute styling, the MGA still retained a separate chassis which offered exceptional rigidity.  Other variants of the MGA included the high performance Twin Cam and the 1600 Mk II and De Luxe.  All models were available in fixed head coupe and roadster form.  In total, 101,081 MGAs were produced with production finally ceasing in July 1962 with the arrival of the MGB.  As with the last of the ‘T’ Series the vast majority were exported and only 5,869 cars were sold on the UK home market.  

 Always a sought-after model, the MGA had great appeal with its rugged engine and drivetrain, excellent handling, sleek styling and top speed of almost 100 mph.

 Presented here for sale is a 1960 example of the MGA 1600 Roadster.    Imported to the UK 30 years ago the car has undergone extensive restoration including conversion to right hand drive.  

 She presents extremely well being finished in Iris Blue with black leather trim.  The hood is a recent replacement and a tonneau cover is also provided along with good, serviceable side screens.

 Fitted with chrome wire wheels and well shod, the car drives very well having been maintained by a local specialist.  

For the past 25 years this MGA has been in the hands of a well-known celebrity musician and has been much enjoyed when time has allowed.

Perfect for Summer motoring!
