MGA ROADSTER 1500cc CHARIOT RED/BLACK INTERIOR. RESTORED CLASSIC CAR

 

For sale my 1959 MGA roadster in chariot red. black interior with red piping. black P. V. C hood and tonneau cover. original U. S. A title document and British heritage certificate present.

Originally supplied to the U. S. A where it remained until 1989.

The MG was restored in the U. S to a very high standard with a full body off nut and bolt rebuild for the owner. a Sandra. l lamania in Florida

The vehicle was found by a Mr David fuller a riley enthusiast who was on a trip to the U. S with his wife to view a riley for his personal import to the UK. he was so impressed by the condition he purchased the MGA as well.

David took delivery and converted the MG to right hand drive. He used the car little in his 15 year ownership. there is an old m. o. t  with a recorded mileage of 22. 98 in march of 1994 and one in 2006 with just 24. 46 a total of just 1248 miles in 12 years. I have spoken to his widow who confirms the trip and purchase along with the garage that MOT'd the vehicle for many years.

The next owner a Mr David cooper acquired the MG in 2006 and in his ownership put just 3. 56 miles on her before passing it to the next owner in 2008.

The next owner a Mr Javed Akhter. a wealthy London pharmacist and car collector purchased the MG to recapture his days running around at university where he met his wife. Javed had the front drum brakes converted to disc and servo assisted them. he purchased new chrome wire wheels. new chrome luggage rack along with a new tonneau cover. after 3 years Javed sold the MGA to me after covering just 814 miles.

My ownership started in May 2011. I am a classic car enthusiast with a small collection.

BODY AND PAINTWORK

The entire car was restored professionally by a U. S restorer to a high standard. it was a body off restoration. The chassis was repainted.  the body was repainted in its original chariot red both inside and out.

The front scuttle and bonnet was professionally repainted in 2012. reason being stone chips to the front scuttle panel. nbsp; all gaps are very good. doors. bonnet and boot all shut nice.

To sum up the paint is very bright with a really nice lustre. no dents and looks fresh with no change in condition in my ownership. the engine bay is clean and bright as is the boot area.

INTERIOR

Interior has had new carpet. oot carpet. nbsp;door cards. seat covers. hood. tonneau. steering wheel. heater controls. spare wheel cover. all with no wear. rips or tears.

 

CHROME

New chrome bumpers and overiders. chrome wire wheels. luggage rack and le mans petrol cap. Has original grill still in very nice condition as is the windscreen surround.

 

MECHANICS

Engine. gearbox. axle all rebuilt and clean with new oil. electrics converted to 1 x 12v battery however the two trays still in place and in excellent shape.

New discs. callipers and pads. new servo fitted along with all new brake pipes. new stainless exhaust.

Engine runs like a sewing machine. quiet and pulls very strong

 

HISTORY FILE

All MOT's dating from 1992 to 2013 recording a current mileage of 28. 84 just 5000 in the last 20 years of motoring.

Receipts for work and parts purchased by the last owner and myself. a muched love car that owners have cherished (and it shows)

 

VALUE

What I have noticed looking at prices of the MGA roadster is that 15-20k buys you a entry level vehicle requiring work to make a useable machine. body shape is not good. home restorations to varying standards. 20-25k buys a vehicle that has probably had major restoration carried out. again to varying standards 30k buys a top end professionally restored vehicle to show standards.

The price reflects the condition. and current market values. if you're looking for a vehicle to use now and not to buy one that will sit in your garage for the next 2 years undergoing restoration then please come and see for yourself the condition of this car. it is reliable and ready to be used.
