From beginning of production in 1955, MGA were imported into Denmark by DOMI (Dansk Overs°isk Motor Industri A/S). This company also had an assembly plant for (amongst other cars) the Morris Minor. Very few MGA were imported in 1955 and 1956 due to Danish registration restrictions. About 1956 the tax laws were changed, and MGAs were imported in larger numbers. Apparently no MGA cars were imported in CKD form, but the imported cars did have some unique features, among them the special Danish ID plate under the bonnet and a DOMI emblem placed conspiciously on the body.
