Based on a 1961 MGA chassis, this project car was built by Walker- Chapman Performance from Derbyshire. Details of the car can be found on page 162 of “Call it MGA” 2nd edition.
BBC’s James May gives the MGA a place in his 10 cars that changed Britain
“Not a radical car but a departure for MG, the change from a pre-war upright look to a modern, curvaceous form.
The A was a massive export success, especially to the US. In many ways it is responsible for nurturing the long love affair of the Americans for the small British roadster. It was a template of sorts; modestly powered, small and light and immense fun to drive. Successive cars from MG and the Triumph and Austin-Healey would follow a similar pattern. Ironically, the MG A is rare in Britain. Under 6% went to the home market, making it one of the most exported cars Britain has ever produced.”
The latest edition of “MGA!” the bi monthly magazine of the North American MGA Register contains a review of the second edition of “Call it MGA”.
Editor Michael Tooke writes, “A compelling read for owners and admirers, you will not be disappointed”.
“MG Enthusiast” calls it “superb value”, and “liked the varied range of topics”
“Practical Classics” reported “packed with anecdotes charting a superb little roadster”
