MGA - The Revolutionary MG

The MGA truly marked a revolution in MG sports car design, with its appearance quite unlike any previous production car from the celebrated British marque.
Entering production in the summer of 1955, it broke with the time-honoured tradition of narrow-gutted, flat-sides, upright styling, with the distinctive large grille, exposed headlamps, separate wings and sharply cut-off tail that had serviced the majority of MG sports cars for well over thirty years.

Many die-hard MG enthusiasts of the time were understandably outraged, but the decision to break with tradition proved to be a good one: over 100,000 cars were produced over the model's seven-year lifetime.

This book, from celebrated author David Knowles covers:
- the circumstances that led to the momentous decision to amek such a fundamental design change;
- the production, publicity and evolution of each and every MGA variant from launch in 1955 to the end of production in 1962, with specification tables for each model;
- profiles of the people who had crucial roles in the development of the MGA
- and finally, the largely untold story of overseas assembly in Australia, Ireland, Mexico and South Africa.

The MGA

The definitive study of the MGA, for the author has gone back to factory records and to the people who worked on the car in the fifties, to find out how it was conceived, manufactured and marketed.
Here is the real story of the MGA's engineering, body styling and every aspect of the car's development and production - including MG's strategy to beat its competitors.

In seven years of production, there were major successes and sad disappointments. The MGA was the car that was "right first time" and though the Twin Cam variant was a nightmare for the factory, it is now the most sought after model.

Original MGA - The Restorer's Guide to All Roadster and Coupe Models

Few classic British sports cars are quite so practical to own today as the MGAs built from 1955 to 1962. Strong mechanicals and solid construction mean that they tend to survive well, while excellent handling and reasonable performance make them very useable by modern standards.

"Original MGA" is the essential companion to these cars. Its aim is to reveal, in words and colour pictures, how all MGAs - including the rare Twin Cam and De Luxe models - altered in detail through the course of production.
Although one MGA may look much like another to the untrained eye, an amazing number of specification changes, major and minor, occurred over the years.

No stone has been left unturned during the exhaustive research which has gone into this book. Drawing from factory records, parts lists and catalogues, as well as the accumulated knowledge of respected restorers and dedicated enthusiasts, it provides the most comprehensive survey of the MGA ever published.

Accompanying the authoritative text are nearly 200 specially commissioned colour photographs showing every permutation of MGA specification in remarkable detail.
Painstakingly selected cars, such as a cherished one-owner-from-new Twin Cam with just 9000 miles on the clock, ensure that this book's illustrations present a unique portfolio of outstanding specimens of each MGA model. Indispensable for all owners, restorers, buyers and enthusiasts.
