15k: Spring Bunny: 1957 MG MGA Coupe

Spring is in the air.  Butterflies float through the fields of flowers and the crisp scent of dewdrops —brrAAAAAAAAP, zoom.  What was that?  For some folks spring heralds the return of migratory bird species and blooming flowers, but for other the spring thaw releases their classic sports cars from the slumber of winter.  Don’t have a classic in your garage stored over the winter?  Get one.  Find this1957 MG MGA Coupe here on eBay offered for $16,900 buy-it-now or make offer, located in Hamburg, NJ.

The MGA was one of the first majorly restyled cars from Morris Garages
after World War II and represented a significant break from traditional
open-fender styling.  Today the MGA (available as a coupe or roadster) is a surprisingly affordable car for
all of its sleek 1950’s styling and a good example will cost you less
than the rustiest Jag/Austin-Healey/Mercedes junk pile from the same
era. Like its predecesor, the MG TF, it is a body on frame car, but offered a
surprising number of technological advancements like rack-and-pinion
steering, independent front and rear suspension, and a 4-speed manual
gearbox. 

The MGA is powered by the BMC B-series, a 1.5
liter inline 4 cylinder overhead valve engine that puts out 72
horsepower.  It isn’t a fast car, but it makes up for speed with sheer classy looks and style.
