Corgi Toys @ 60: MGA

May 1957 saw the addition of a third sports car to the range. Another British classic too, and something that you would see on Hertfordshire roads if you were lucky; the lovely MGA.

Just two colours: red and a metallic green, each suiting the car very well. 

Both colours seem to be equally available amongst models for sale now. It was a popular model and lots were produced and sold so it need not be too expensive. Versions with shaped wheels are quite scarce and worth finding.

The screens seldom survive but replacements are easy to obtain and fit simply into a slot in front of the dashboard. I must make a version with spoked wire wheels one day. That would look nice.
