 MGA Roadster 1. 00 cc 1957. wire wheels. original RHD UK car with original reg number. three letters / three numbers. I have spoken to the DVLA and they have confirmed the original reg number will be reissued. ( I do have the buff log book with eleven previous owners) with just a letter from the MG owners club. I had tried to buy this car for the last six years. it was disassembled and put in a lock up garage over fourty years ago by the last owner until a deal was done and I got it for restoration last week.

The car is for sale as is or I can restore it for the buyer up to any stage starting from the shell / chassis rebuilt and painted ready for home completion. You are very welcome to come and see the car and the quality of my work on other customers cars I have in my workshop. I charge £20 per hour. supply parts at true cost and have been restoring cars for over thirty years.

As the car is so original I would propose a rebuild to ex factory specification and colour. tyrolite green with black seats.

The car would be restored over the next twelve to eighteen months. An initial deposit of £5. 00 would secure the car followed by monthly invoices as work progressed.

The last picture is of a factory MGB GT V8 I have restored. (just finishing) after it was left for twenty eight years in a damp concrete garage.

Please email any queries

If you are seriously interested in this car rebuilt for you to your specification please email me a phone number and I will call you. thanks

Can deliver for £1. 00 per mile one way thanks.

YES. S FAR AS I KNOW THE CAR IS COMPLETE. I have been through all the parts. laid them out and only missing one rear light red lens.

I have now had several queries about the total cost so to clarify. at the point the car is sold I would sell the car to you for £5. 00. give you the V5. If required we would then agree how quickly you wanted the car finished and then draw up a monthly budget. You don't have to start straight away as I have lots of work in hand and it could be left until next year. I can store the car free of charge until work commenced. Please email a phone number if you want to chat. thanks michael

 Hi. to answer lots of queries in one go. I have checked out the chassis to the original spec and it is straight. The front extension frame it un damaged and so is the front of the body. I can see that most of the body inner panels will need replacing but all the outer panels. wings. bonnet. boot. doors are very good having been stored off the car. I would estimate the total restoration at about £20. 00. all mechanical parts rebuilt/replaced. new paint and trim. new mot. If you are seriously interested in having a car rebuilt for you. where you can see it every step of the way please email me. My quote of twelve to eighteen month to finish is me just being up front with the work I have in hand. it may be sooner. thanks michael

On 30-Apr-13 at 17:07:04 BST. seller added the following information:

  After two enquiries and to make it clear. as it says in the listing you are bidding to buy the car for £5. 00 and then have it totaly restored if you want for about £20. 00 over the next year / eighteen months.  

To answer three queries in one go and make it clear. yes I would sell the car and rebuild just the chassis/body including painting so the buyer can finish at home in own time and save money. Email me if you are serious as I can do the work up to any stage for home completion. thanks michael


To be fair to all other watchers this is what I have offered to one Ebayer. buy the car for £5. 00 cash now and for an additional £10. 00  in instalments I will rebuild the body / chassis and paint it ready for home completion. First confirmation / deposit gets this deal. could even include delivery when finished. please email any queries. thanks
