A com­plete con­trast to the TF model it re­placed, the A was unashamedly tar­get­ing the valu­able Amer­i­can ex­port mar­ket but found plenty of buy­ers in its home­land. Orig­i­nally pow­ered by a 1.5-litre en­gine (to 1959) and then by two 1.6-litre vari­ants, the highly-prized 113mph Twin Cam model was un­veiled in 1958. The A’s swoopy lines have some­times been com­pared to an early Chevro­let

Corvette, and coupé and roadster body types broaden the car’s ap­peal. They might have been cheap in the 1970s, but to­day they’re a much-de­sired sports car of­fer­ing lively per­for­mance, re­li­a­bil­ity and that all-im­por­tant spares sup­port. A win­ner all round, in other words.

1961 MGA 1600 coupé. £16,240. H&H
