1956 MG MGA

The MGA is a sports car that was produced by MG from 1955 to 1962. It replaced the MG TF 1500 Midget and represented a complete styling break from MG's earlier sports cars. Announced on 26 September 1955, the MGA was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show. A total of 101 081 units were marketed through the end of production in July 1962, the vast majority of which were exported. 5 869 cars were sold on the home market, and the MGA was replaced by the MGB.

Description by seller:

Original body plus soft top and side mirrors. The right-hand door trim needs attention. Car has only ever used for odd weekend drive.

This car is available to view by appointment in Benoni.

Hi, is this car available? If so, I might be interested. I'm based in Cape Town but would like to see more pics before coming up to view. Can I get pics of the interior, under the bonnet and boot and any blemishes / rust. etc on the body work. It would be good if the owner could tell me about any issues the car may have also. As many pics as possible please. Thanks Steve
