This magnificent MGA 1600 was an original US export. It had a charmed life there with one owner for most of its life, covering a relatively low mileage for such a sports car. The long term owner carried out a full body-off restoration in 2013/15 including engine & transmission rebuild, suspension rebuild, all new rubber parts, bearings, seals and wiring harness. Radiator rebuilt, shock absorbers rebuilt, brake system fully overhauled and 5 brand new 60-spoke wheels with new tubeless tyres.
The weather equipment was replaced with correct beige stay-fast cloth roof, new side curtains and new half/full tonneau.
In view of the magnificent condition we imported the car andhanded it over to Bob West MGA to carry out the few remaining jobs to bring the car to near concours standard, the main one being to return it to right hand drive. The reason we chose Bob West was not only his in-depth knowledge of these cars, or his excellent reputation, but was the one company that could alter the steering using a GENUINE BMC right hand rack, rather than a questionable reproduction. This was carried out, together with the pedal boxes, dashboard and ancillary areas to astandard that you cannot tell the change. This company also fully serviced the car, checked every area, MOT'd it and valeted to a professional finish.
An age related registration No. has been appled for via the MGCC and DVLA and will come with the car.
It is presented in magnificent condition with a new life before it, and at a price that doesn't reflect the huge cost of the restoration. The MGA 1600 is a stunning looking car and if I was looking for one, I'd have no hesitation in keeping this. Lucky the new owner .
