THE quintessential sports classic that manages to distil all the facets of the automobile down to the most primal and visceral basics, the Type A was a pioneer for a new breed of MG sports car, thrusting the Abingdon Company into a progressive era of automotive design.

Gone was the old hat and upright styling of the previous T-series cars, replaced with sleekly streamlined bodywork evolved from a series of racing prototypes intended for Le Mans.

Featuring everything needed for the ultimate drive: a rev-happy engine, 4 speed manual transmission, knock-off wire wheels, rack and pinion steering, dual carburettors, a sporty exhaust bark, tachometer, folding convertible top and just two bucket seats, the MG A was engineered purely for motoring entertainment.

The CKD or Completely Knocked Down, Australian made car, offered here is an early 1957 MG A Mk1 1500.

Limited in production and with few surviving today, these desirable models were shipped to the land down under from BMC in the UK in crates like flat-pack furniture to be assembled at the BMC factory in Zetland, Sydney.

Professionally restored to exacting original specification and completed in 2018, this MG A is one of the finest we’ve ever come across, presented exquisitely in its original Colorado Red over Black trim with its numbers matching engine and transmission.

Accompanied by a swathe of restoration and maintenance receipts as well as it’s Certificate of Authenticity confirming the optional wire wheels and adjustable steering column, the MG A’s fabled point-and-shoot driving dynamics and sure-footed underpinnings are evident in a just short stint behind the wheel of this fantastic car.

With characteristic English panache; punchy, alive and seriously smile inducing from the exhaust note to the mechanical feel moving through all 4 gears this MG A is absolutely on the button.

One of the finest examples we’ve come across this turn-key Mk1 is excellently prepared to drive off the showroom floor and offers the perfect getaway car for escaping to your favourite café, beach or picnic spot. Especially as the weather tempers to conditions more conducive to classic motoring.
