The MGA With An Attitude

Tastes and traditions change with time, of course. If it didn't we might all have Avocado refigerators and Orange counter tops. So don't be too surprised that MGs of the late 1950's and early 1960's might have some odd colors (by modern standards). It was a time when car makers were exercising some new capabilities in bright paint colors, giving us Tyrolite Green, Alamo Beige, and Glacier Blue. By the late 60's some of those colors had already lost their attraction, and cars were being repainted in "less obnoxious" colors (so to speak). That's how so many MGA came to be Red, being one of the more long term endearing standard colors available. These are exploratory pages to see what colors you might like (or hate) on your MGA (or on someone else's MGA).
