This 1960 MGA is such the quintessential British roadster that it even has a Union Jack decal on the hood. Plus, with a nice color combo, full convertible top, and desirable 1600cc motor, it all makes for quite an impressive classic.
This car is an icon of the open road. It has long flowing fenders that would look great on a Cadillac, but instead they artfully draw it on a slender European body. The white paint has a nice gloss that does a good job of showing off these curves every time the sunshine finds the sheetmetal. And let\'s face it, you\'re going to want to be driving this MGA on every sunny day, anyway. The low-cut doors, removable windscreen, and wire wheels with proper knock-off hubs give this one a true sports car heritage. But what really makes the MGA special is the touch of class that comes from plenty of brightwork on the wraparound chrome bumpers, fender-mounted mirrors, polished wheel covers, and waterfall grille.
The red interior looks striking in the full red package. You can tell there was a solid investment inside to keep this looking impressive, and the bucket seats are finished in a supple leather. So this one really has the sophisticated look you want in a classic European. More than just look great, this is the kind of car that speaks directly to the driver. A grippy three-spoke steering wheel, classic gauges, and a manual transmission - those are the true essentials you need. Your senses will go into overload as pull the start knob and then let the wind whip through the interior while you help fill it with the wonderful soundtrack from the motor. And for those few days when the weather turns wet on your road trips, this one comes with a soft top and side curtains. In fact, since the folding roof is also done in a distinct red, you may just put it up for the sake of style.
When shopping for an MGA, you want one built in the 60s. Not only is it a rarer roadster, but also because you received the larger motor. The enlargement to the 1600cc powerplant gives this a little extra kick of performance that is always welcomed in these machines. The engine bay has an exceptionally clean look. There was an investment here to completely restore the motor, and so you\'ll proudly display it as much as the rest of this car. It fires up readily, runs smoothly, and drives like you want a respected classic to be. The exhaust note is hypnotic as you discover the fun and control that the four-speed manual gearbox provides. This car has one more secret that will be revealed on your favorite long way home. While these sprightly roadsters have built a reputation for providing one of the best driving experiences around, and this evolution of the MGA even has front disc brakes.
Complete with build receipts, this is the beautiful, tasteful, and all-out fun to drive MGA. So if you\'re looking for a classic British drop-top that looks great, right down to the undercarriage, call today!
