MGA 1500 Roadster 1957. Finished in Orient Red with a Black leather interior piped in Red. This ex Californian car was imported by me in the early 1990s . I sold the car to a close local friend ,and over the next six years with some help and assistance from me , he completely restored the car to a very high standard.
The car was completely dismantled and every part was either refurbished or replaced using many O.E parts. The engine was professionally restored, it was also lightened , balanced and converted to run on lead free fuel. The gearbox is a std four speed and the Differential is upgraded to a 3.9/1 ratio for better high speed cruising, carbs, brakes, suspension and all the electrics were completely gone through, and was converted properly to RH Drive with all OE BMC parts. The paintwork and the interior including the Hood Side Screens and Tonneau cover are all in excellent order, and the quality of the restoration shows, now over twenty years on!
So all in all a great little car, its only covered just over six thousand miles, only two owners in the last twenty years who have both cherished it. The car drives beautifully and will not disappoint, its an ex MG Car Club Concours winner, the detailing is properly done with all the correct fasteners, and its been maintained regardless of cost. It comes with a massive history folder full of receipts, and photographs of the restoration, and some useful spares, that include the OE parts to convert it back to LH Drive if the new owner so wishes. We can do the conversion for a modest fee.
First time advertised in almost twenty years. £36000.00 . Call Bob on 07919 347320.
