MG A 1500 roadster

$24000

Stock # NE-1957-14

SOLD

Actually, I purchased this car for my own collection, alas, a recently acquisition is now causing sale.

I thought it was an unusually good car. Last owner, his first car, since 1969. At which time the engine and transmission were rebuilt and a new wiring harness installed. Only covered 6,000 miles since then, 68,000 original miles since new,

The ONLY older British car I can remember that when it arrived, EVERYTHING worked. Lights, wipers, heater, horn, brake lights, gauge lights, etc. Amazing. Clearly a result of having a replaced wiring harness.

Excellent chassis and floors, body was super straight but arrived with faded original paint. We loosened the fenders, install new wing beading, repainted the car in the best base coat/clear coat acrylic. And then spent more than four days carefully wet sanding and buffing the exterior to a show finish.

Most of the chrome appears to be new, we checked the brakes and all were fine, engine runs smoothly and with ample power, excellent oil pressure, no smoke hot or cold, gearbox is quiet and with good synchromesh, very good tan top, has a tonneau, all gauges work, all in all a very nice MGA capable of many years of reliable running and driving.

And while, in the current vogue of classic car people, the terms that come up often....'laser straight' and 'mirror image paint' and 'excellent door and panel fit' really apply to this car. Because it is genuinely beautiful. With the best door fit of any MGA I can remember.
