I love MGAs, and we have had many of them. They are a great value, and they look like a million bucks. They’re bigger than a Bugeye with more “classic” than “cuteness” appeal.
This is a really nice one to own. It has lived since 1976 in dry South Carolina and it shows. The frame shows no rust, and the rockers are excellent. This car is solid and sound. It was re-painted once in 1982, and the finish is still holding up quite nicely. The car received a complete mechanical upgrade recently, with a rebuilt engine, new steering rack, new clutch slave cylinder, new rear wheel cylinders and all new hoses. Receipts are included.
The car has been driven very little in the last 10 or so years, with just 500 miles since the major mechanical restoration. The top is quite good, as are the side curtains and tonneau.
Anyone can jump into this car and go. The transmission is in excellent shape, with great synchros and no up or downshifting issues.
Tires and exhaust are older, and the new owner may choose to have us upgrade these before the car departs. Still, it’s a great car to drive, with just a few minor cosmetic flaws, quite natural for a car of this vintage.
Call to discuss… we have kept the price down to acknowledge it’s not a fresh cosmetic restoration, but by the same token, this is a strong running car with thousands recently invested in an engine rebuild and it has all its weather gear, a 1600 engine and disk brakes which make this one of the more desirable of the MGA series. Drive this car anywhere, with no apologies. It’s perfect for anyone who wants shiny and sexy classic car for under $20k that you don’t have to be afraid to drive. This car will turn heads everywhere!
