Description for MG MGA 1960

It's the quintessential British sports car and a sure bet to turn heads wherever you take it. This 1960 MGA Mark I is a true classic from across the pond, and it greets the present day in great form, looking very sharp both inside and out, and running smooth. Clad in a very appropriate British Racing green - after all the MG is about as British as afternoon tea and James Bond - this is a car that'll charm you... right from the start. Its low-slung form has been featured in countless movies over the years, with some lucky driver behind the wheel who's climbed a rung or two on the status ladder just by virtue of having this sports car under his or her command. This iconic sports car has come through the decades nicely - its distinctive paint looks great, with nice even coloring and smooth texture wherever you look. No aggressive corner carving or any other stresses from the road have knocked it off kilter - it's got nice tight lines and even gaps between body panels from front to back. Up front, the grille and front bumper are looking clean with no pitting, and all of its other exterior fittings sit securely in place and, with a little attention, can be brought to top form. As the MG hails from England, a land known for its inclement weather, it's only fitting that a cloth convertible top sits waiting in the trunk to be snapped into position, should your travels require protection from the elements. The black vinyl interior remains in its original configuration and just one look at it will make you want to go find a rally to take part in. As you pull the cable-operated latch to open the door and climb inside, you'll almost certainly be surprised by the amount of room for driver and passenger - despite the MG's modest size, a full-size adult won't feel the need to adopt the bent-knee, shoulders-raised posture required by so many of its counterparts. The low-backed buckets still have plenty of miles left in them and if you look beyond the leather-wrapped stock steering wheel, you'll see a dash that's in outright impressive shape, with a nice gloss over its steel surface and an assortment of stock gauges that are unusually clear sitting in the instrument cluster. Just to the right you'll find a Sony AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary port standing by to provide your tunes while you're out on the road enjoying yourself. A full-size spare sits securely in the trunk. A 1622 cc engine sits in the compact engine compartment to power this lightweight British classic - it tips the scales at right about 2,000 lbs. With its pair of SU carbs sitting on top, properly adjusted, the compact powerplant is in good form, starting right up and sounding very healthy as it teams with a 4-speed manual transmission. Front disc brakes provide fade-resistant stopping power. Mechanically and otherwise, this car is no garage-bound project - it's very road-ready to provide you with miles of nostalgia-evoking adventure as soon as you get it home, and it rides on a set of 15" spoked wheels outfitted with Hercules Superior steel-belted radials. Cars don't get much more iconic than this 1960 MGA Mark I, and with its great looks and strong running condition, it's got fun written all over it. Call today!
