Replacing the TF was the MGA. The A was a complete redesign from a platform that had been around since before WWII. It served its purpose but was becoming an antique before its time. The MGA was a welcome redesign headed up by designer Syd Enever. The A was built from 1955-1962 and went through a minor design and engine upgrade for the Mark II that was built for the last two years. This particular Coupe is finished in Red over Tan. It was originally a White over black car that is specified in the heritage trust certificate that comes with the car. This car seems to runs and drive quite nicely and we personally like the steel wheels over the wires. The paint appears to be in good condition that shines up nicely. The interior is in good driver quality condition as well. It has had regular owner maintenance throughout the years. It is a very quality car that would be a welcome addition to any ones stable.
