"Setting the Coupe apart were its numerous civilized touches. While
roadster owners assembled their own tops and installed side
curtains, Coupe owners simply rolled up the framed glass side
windows. Coupes also offered the added security of external door
releases and a key lock, and their leather seat interiors offered a
more upscale appearance with additional carpeting and a color-keyed
Vynide cowl covering... It's no surprise that the more complex
Coupes were more expensive to purchase new than MGA roadsters, and
their production numbers were a fraction of those of the roadster."
This 1957 MGA Coupe is finished in a black exterior with accenting
red interior to create a classic look. This MGA went through a pain
staking restoration which started in the 1980's and was completed
and on the road in the late 90's. The restoration of this rare
Coupe is fully documented with receipts and photographs.
Upon setting of the choke and a pull of the starter this 1957 MGA
fires right up and is ready to roll with power coming from the
1500cc motor which is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission.
The exterior black paint shows very well as does the interior with
no signs of excessive use. In 1957 only 3,326 coupes were delivered
to North America in comparison to the 13,869 Roadsters. This MGA is
rare and likely to continue to appreciate in value. If you would
