MGA & Twin Cam 1955 - 1962

MGA & Twin Cam 1955 - 1962
Gold Portfolio series, R.M. Clarke, 180 pages, with many illustrations, 270 x 200 mm, Paperback, English
Announced in 1955 to replace the TF the MGA was a radical change to the older cars. It had a streamlined and curvaceous full-width body. This was a car in need of extra performance and in 1958 the Twin-Cam came with a twin-overhead-camshaft, 1588cc version of the B-series engine. It also had four-wheel disc brakes and centre-lock disc wheels. Unfortunately the engine was a little unreliable and production only covered an 18-month period. Like many other short run vehicles the Twin-Cam has attained cult status and is the model to get. The cars to benefit from this development were the 1600 and Mk II with larger engines and good performance. This is a book of contemporary road tests, new model introductions, specification and technical data, drivers reports, racing, record breaking, touring, buying second hand and history.
