Car Of The Day – Classic Car For Sale – 1960 MG A Twin Cam

by Mike –

Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. The MG A Twin Cam is a rare car and in coupe form it is even more rare.

This is a stylish British sports car that is more rare that the Jaguar XKE, although this one is priced like an XKE.

I have always liked the MG A and I once owned an MG Midget that I did not like so much.

This MG A is a great color and is set off nicely by the gray interior. With a 108 hp engine this is one of the faster MG As around and one of the few coupes. Most MG As are roadsters, so this one will get a lot of attention on the road or at a local show. I love those wheels, although I think the price is high.

  1. This is a lovely little car but does the leather on the drivers seat seem a little loose?
