I would like to upgrade to a camera with higher ISO capabilities to increase exposure choices for the slow (f stop) lenses.... I would like one (with an evf) that is a least as small as the A55 that will autofocus with the Maxxum lenses.

If the A55 size is a definite requirement, the only other A-mount model to consider as an 'upgrade' would be the A37... but the sensor performance is essentially identical for the two. The differences involve things like viewfinder specs, LCD type, LCD articulation, video stabilization, burst speed, studio flash support, and GPS. Study those differences carefully when deciding if the A37 would provide any important improvements for you - or if it would actually represent a downgrade.

If you will accept a larger body size or an E-mount camera with an adapter, the situation changes.

Regardless, any improvements over the A55 in high ISO capabilities provided by Sony's recent APS-C models will be moderate rather than dramatic.
