Vehicle Description

Beyond any doubt, the MG A was a very modern and highly impressive roadster when it first appeared in the mid-1950s – Elvis Presley loved it so much, he bought one himself after granting it numerous appearances in his movie “Blue Hawaii”.

While it is not known whether this particular specimen, built in 1959, also once had a celebrity owner, it is believed to have originally been delivered to the US, and found its way to Germany via Great Britain. It is a nice-looking car, despite the fact that the paint job – in British racing green – is of less than superior quality.

The car has traces of use and small blemishes, but the overall impression is still convincing, not last due to its interior, which has been refurbished at one point. The seats have been re-upholstered, new door panels fitted. The wooden steering wheel is likewise in a very good condition. The canopy top is missing, but the top linkage exists.

The MG A runs on black spoke wheels with knock-off hubs. The chrome on front and rear bumper looks very good, and a chromed rear luggage rack adds a charming touch.
With an unwarranted mileage of 68,100 mls on the clock, the 1.5 litre four-cylinder engine runs smooth and produces enough power for enjoyable cruising.

“My Wish Came True” is a 1959 Elvis song. Why don’t you make your own wish come true with this classic British roadster?


 

The MG A was designed by Sidney Enever as early as 1951. After failing to obtain the go-ahead by the BMC chairman, the project got shelved, only to be brought back four years later when sales of the somewhat outdated T series were dropping. With its stunning looks, it quickly became the most successful British sports car of its time, with just over 100,000 cars made.

Engine-wise, the original 1489 cc was replaced with a 1588 cc in 1959 and then again in 1961 with a 1622 cc. Even though the A series is best known for its roadsters, a coupé version was available as of 1956, which, its richer features’ list notwithstanding, never even remotely reached the popularity of the open variant.

In case you’ve been wondering: There’s no way to lock the doors on the roadster, as they have neither lock nor handle. You simply reach in and pull a cord…

MG A prices have been continuously on the rise for the past 50 years straight.
