I don't think you need to change out the sockets.  Check out Classic and 
Vintage Bulbs website at www.classicbulbs.com.  He makes a lot of the 
bulbs that will fit old British cars.  The USA dealer is Little British 
Car Co., lbcarco.com.

Actually, I just checked the first link and it goes to lbcarco. If you 
can't find them there, email Jeff Zorn at lbcarco.  He is an MGA owner, 
so he will know exactly what you are talking about.
