Lot #456 - This 1956 MG A Roadster is a superb example of the first year for MG A production. It has been restored and styled to pay homage to the road rally cars of the mid 1950's. The body is finished in eye-catching Tangerine Orange with a low-profile windscreen, basket-style head lamp grilles, front driving lamps and leather hood strap. Inside the cockpit, this MG A features an authentic vintage rally-style Heuer chronometer, leather-wrapped Moto-Lita steering wheel, leather shifter and leather bucket seats. Under the hood is the correct 1500cc H4 engine with twin SU carburetors and the proper 4-speed manual gearbox. This MG A has a new exhaust system that supplies a tremendous soundtrack and also features rack & pinion steering, independent front suspension, solid rear axle with leaf springs and hydraulic brakes behind chrome wire wheels.
