MGA Coupe 1955-62

For the first time after WWII, MG decided to make a coupe version of the MGA. As with most other British coupes, it was a strategy that intended to make it a "GT" style car, more refined, but not much harder to build, maintain, or drive. This coupe differed from earlier MG's in that it had roll-up windows, door handles, and it still looked like a sports car. The doors would lock too. The main differences between coupe and roadster can be seen on the interior of the car. The coupe had a cover on the underside of the dashboard that lowered both sound levels and engine heat. It had a different patterns on the seats, and a door panel that lacked the map pocket with pullstring but had a door pull, a door handle, and a window winder. Unlike the roadsters, the entire are behind the seats was carpeted. The coupe was optional throughout the MGA range, so 1500, 1600, Mk2, Twin-Cam, and DeLuxe models were available.
