Known History

The year 1955 saw the introduction of the MG A. With this design the MG broke new grounds. After its predecessors MG TD and MG TF, which were largely based on the pre-war MG TB, it was a roadster with a very modern sporty design.

 

Like its predecessors, the MG A was a great success and, like before, the greater part was sold in America.

 

Until 1959, the MG A was equipped with a 1459 cc four-cylinder engine. From that year, the car was fitted with a 1588 cc four-cylinder. A 1622 cc four-cylinder engine replaced the

1588 cc. engine in 1961.

 

The early MG A versions had very good drum brakes until 1959, but after that year, the MG A was equipped with disc brakes on the front wheels.

 

The year 1962 saw the production of the MG A, the A 1600 MKII. The MG B replaced this very popular British sports car, and was to develop the success of the MG A even further...
