This new book is 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. This book tells how the
sleepy Thames-side village of Abingdon became a mass-production centre for
the MGA, how the MGA became one of America's best-loved sports cars and
how the MGA has become one of today's classic cars, cherished by
enthusiastic owners all over the world.
