Description

Just in! 1959 MGA “TWIN CAM” ROADSTER#YD31758. (Stock # 3904.) An entirely new car was introduced by MG in 1955. The great sports car from England had worked its way through the TA, TB, TC, TD and TF from the 1930s until the design of this major departure--so major, in fact, that the new car was called simply “A.” The envelope- bodied MGA caught hold immediately upon introduction and more than 100,000 cars were sold. This was a great-looking car with comfort and handling, but there were some enthusiasts who demanded more power. In 1958, MG responded with the introduction of the 1600 cc twin cam engine. With 108 horsepower, this top-of-the-line offering was equipped with Dunlop “center lock” alloy wheels (similar to the Dunlop competition wheels on C-Type and D-Type Jaguars) and 4-wheel Dunlop power disc brakes. Performance was increased dramatically with a top speed of 110 mph and many were raced at tracks around the world. Our car was purchased in 1994 by Don Haynam, a well-known Indianapolis British car enthusiast. Don spent almost a year stripping his twin cam down to its bare chassis and then building it back up again, fully rebuilding the rare twin cam engine and photo-documenting the restoration at each step. As Don grew older and encountered serious health issues, he sold his beloved twin cam roadster and it ended-up in a fabulous Pennsylvania MG collection which we have been fortunate to be able to purchase. A lovely car in Orient Red with black leather and black top—all in superb condition throughout. 28,716 recorded miles. $55,000.
