1956 Chevy and Friends

From the Don Jackson Collection -- LLF Library
Two classics sit wrecked at an auto body shop in downtown Brookhaven.  This is circa 1960, based on the Chevrolet in the background.

I haven't been able to figure out the make and model of the little convertible to the left of the 1956 Chevy, although I suspect it's an MG or a Triumph.  Motorheads feel free to chime in on what you know about these cars.

Update:  The convertible to the left of the Chevy is most likely an Austin-Healey MK1 3000, and the year could be 1959, '60 or '61, based on my cursory search of the internet.  Thanks to Larry Morgan for putting me straight on the supposition this car was an MG or a Triumph.  The motto of the Austin Healey at the time was "Go fast and look good doing it," or words to that effect.  It appears the driver took that motto to heart.
