 Sat in a barn for years. 1961 MGA 1600. Serial number indicates this is a 1960. Probably titled when dealer sold it new in 1961. as happened to many MGA's that have been mistitled. Complete car. except for the transmission tunnel. includes 5 good wire wheels and a good set of bolt-on side curtains (see photos). One pretty good crease in the left rear wing and small rust through at driver's door frame (photo). No rust through on fenders. but rockers are shot. Otherwise a very good candidate for restoration.

Friday: went out to turn over the engine today and couldn't turn it by hand. This car has spent its life indoors; there's still low oil in the pan. and no signs that the car has sat for any time in the weather. Could be that I didn't have enough leverage to crank the engine. but I believe that it ought to have spun. So. it's stuck somewhere. Rockers look OK and didn't see any rust on piston tops through spark plug holes. I don't believe that it's beyond a fairly simple rebuild. I'd do it anyway. Wish I could tell you more about the internals. but can't without disassembly.
