The problem with this car was the driver's high seating position due to the restrictions on using the TD chassis. A new chassis was spaced further apart with the side members and the bottom on the underside no longer formed the top of the frame sections. A prototype was built and shown to the BMC chairman Leonard Lord. He turned down the idea of ​​producing the new car as he had just signed a deal with Donald Healey. Austin-Healey cars 2 weeks ago. Falling sales of traditional MG models caused a change of heart, and the car, initially called the UA series, was brought back. Because it was so different from the older MG models it was called MGA, the "first of a new line" to quote contemporary advertising. There was also a new engine available, therefore the car did not have the original XPAG unit but was fitted with the BMC Corporate B-Series type allowing a lower hood line.
