This page covers all the Corgi MGAs, both the original 1957 Corgi Toys release and the Corgi Classics cars introduced in the 1990s

The MGA was such a sexy looking car - of course when I was a kid it just looked old-fashioned next to the new MGB but viewing both models in hindsight this is such a better looking car with finely balanced and sculpted detail. They were made here in Abingdon where I live now, British Leyland in their wisdom closed down the factory in the 1980s and threw away all that heritage and pride which had gone into producing cars like this. Of course by the time Rover Cars had realised their mistake it was too late and the marque is now gone for good. (or it was when I originally wrote this!)

Still we have a drive through McDonalds and posh new Police station where the factory used to be so it's not a total loss...

Corgi Toys

Corgi Toys made the MGA between 1957 & 1965, you will see it in red, cream or metallic green with red or cream seats, wheels will be the early flat turned hubs or later spun hubs depending upon when the car was made. They are all valued pretty well and colour does not really affect price. The black version below was an early attempt by me to produce a code 3, not very successful I'm afraid.

Corgi Classics

The Corgi Classics version was produced in the late 1990s. It suffers from poor detailing, the plastic moulded parts are crude, especially some of the wheels and the hard/soft tops. They were produced in very large numbers and the collector market is swamped with them, driving down prices.
