Perfect 1959 MGA at Ron Shimek’s N. Austin Garage

Written by Ken Altes

The MGA was available from 1955 to 1962, with about 100k built.  This appears to be the last of the 1500 cc engined models, giving 72 hp from the BMC B-engine used in lots of cars. See link at right for this garage that is the place to take your British car, although they do more than that, and very well.Blue MGA Austin TX ShimekBlue MGA Austin TX Shimek engineBlue MGA Austin TX Shimek interior Blue MGA in Austin TX Shimek
