MGA Coupe Blue Fv Cornering (1957)

Its not very often that a closed coupe version of a sportscar actually looks as pleasing as its more glamorous open counterpart, however with the 1956 MGA Coupe this is definitely the case. The MGA was blessed with good looks and a well proportioned body from day one, the fixed head Coupe continued this theme with a roof design that mimicked the Roadsters raised soft-top profile.

The MGA Coupe became a standard model in the range from 1956 and was available throughout the models lifetime, in 1500, 1600, Mk II and Twin-Cam forms. Standard features included wind-up door windows, external door handles, locks and extra brightwork. Mechanically the closed cars were identical to their open sister MGA models.
