This MGA was repatriated from the U.S. in 2013 having already been restored there. The previous owner had the gearbox rebuilt recently on this handsome sports car, the MGA drives with no known faults and is in excellent order throughout. Finished in orient red with beige interior, this left-hand drive MGA is supplied with a V5C registration document. These quintessentially British sports cars are great fun to drive and represent excellent value given the significant rise in prices of 1950’s British sports cars in recent years.

This is an early LHD MGA roadster that has been restored to a good standard, with very good paintwork and contrasting beige trim. Complete with matching full weather equipment, this car would be ideal for using on the Continent or as a participant in historic rallies. It has recently been checked through our workshops and with the benefit of additional work being carried to prepare it for the road.

During the course of the restoration carried out in the USA, the body work has been restored to a high standard finished in MGA Orient Red , the engine bay has a very authentic appearance, with the correct badges and decals being in place. For the interior the dashboard is correctly finished for the roadster version, the interior is well presented with beige seats and door cards with contrasting black carpets, with matching beige weather equipment.

Following the US restoration, the gearbox was rebuilt by the previous UK owner in 2018. In 2017 the brakes, the front shock absorbers and trunnions were overhauled, and a new distributor was fitted. Since our purchase of the car, the following work has been carried out in our workshops; Disc and drum brakes checked, cleaned and adjusted, carburettors cleaned, balanced and adjusted, ignition system serviced with a new rotor arm, and two new 6 volt batteries fitted. The car runs and drives very well.
