The MGA With An Attitude

MGA Coupe sun visor Bear in mind the photo at right is what we're after for original appearance. Photos below are courtesy of Mark Wellard in Australia. These triangular hinges come from an MG Y-type and appear to be the same parts used for the MGA Coupe. Aside from the hinges, the Y-type visors are NOT the same as MGA parts.

and MGA.

Others have suggested that an Austin A30 visor is also the same as an MGA coupe, but not so. See pictures below. They have a plastic-welded or heat-sealed edge and are made with the same material as used in the MGA coupe headlining. They would make a suitable visor for the coupe because of the headlining match (if you still have the correct material), however, the hinges are totally different.
