The MGA With An Attitude

MGA accessories 2 What do you get for the guy who has everything? Maybe something that no one else has, like a rear badge bar for instance, giving a place to hang some more gadgets. Let me try to count what I see here.

MGA accessories 3

  • Competition style sports screen.
  • Desmo overtaking mirrors.
  • Headrest fairing.
  • Wood rim steering wheel.
  • Center zip tonneau cover.
  • High mount third brake light.
  • Front and rear badge bars.
  • At least four badges and a rally placquard in front and four in back.
  • Lucas Tripod headlamps. MGA accessories 1
  • Two set of driving lights, possibly fog and spot lights.
  • Rock guards over all the lights.
  • Custom mesh grill to match the rock guards on lights.
  • Retractible antenna in the front body cowl.
  • Luggage rack (not factory style).
  • Alloy pop-up fuel filler cap.
  • Porcelan British flag emblems on sides.
  • Chromed British flag emblem on rear.
  • Chromed rear license frame with chrome bolts.
  • Chrome wire wheels.
  • Dual chrome tip exhaust.

    ??? Maybe the aluminum front bumper doesn't count as an accessory. I suppose it could still use a back-up light and white wall tires, but I would die if it got mud flaps and a Continental Kit. Notice the seasonal change of accessories, removing the racing screen and headrest fairing and installing the full windscreen and luggage rack. MGA accessories 4 Large holes in the kick panels and extended bolts make windscreen change quicker.

    Under the bonnet we find:
  • Alternator.
  • Alloy valve cover.
  • Supercharger.
  • Steel braid covered oil cooler hoses.

    Inside we find these bits:
  • MG-TD type accessory grab handle used for door pull (that can scarf your arm).
  • MGA Twin Cam and "Deluxe" style bright trim strip under the dash.
  • 2-piece aluminum door scuff plate set (with MG Car Club Badge).
  • 4-piece aluminum frame cover set.
  • Factory original style accessory wood steering wheel
  • Semi-modern electronic radio.
  • Racing style seat belts.
  • "MG" crested floor mats.
  • Wood shift knob.
  • 2-place toggle switches for driving lights.
  • At least 4 dash plaques.
  • MGA accessories 5
    Ah, but he forgot the chrome speaker bezel that was fitted to Coupe, Twin Cam, "Deluxe", and 1600-MK-II (when the dash was vinyl covered). And I should check to see if he has the original MG leather key fob. Since these pictures he has added a vacuum/boost gauge and volt and amp meters in a recessed panel below the heater controls.
