The Mk3 RWA (Round rear wheel arches)
 
An essential British classic that is gathering momentum in price rapidly.  
The sharp lined small manageable two-seater sports car produced by the MG 
division of the British Motor Corporation from 1961 to 1979 is of course 
now a retro icon. Probably the most desirable of all Midgets and the Green
with black is probably the most sought after colour combination.
 
 
This MG - New Heritage Shell
 
Clearly this has originally been a square arch model as late 71 on the round
wheel arch model was standard for a limited run through to 74. Subject to a
complete rebuild in 2001 and crucially in and around only 1000 dry miles since.
being stored in a heated garage all other times. it has been cherished. The
previous keeper has owned the car for the last 12 years and bought it directly
after the complete restoration was carried out ( as detailed below).  
 
 
This restoration cost in excess of £6750. Heritage shell cost £2650 and the
work £4000.

Exterior
 
A beauty. and not just superficially. goes without saying that there is no
visible corrosion. and the new shell has never been welded to state the obvious.
It has been stored well. the last owner of 12 years has used it sparingly
largely due to ill health in the last 5 years. it has been getting motd
& serviced regardless. Classic shade that is gleaming from any corner.  
The chrome is not perfect in isolated. on the whole excellent and gleaming in
all the right places. The hood looks fine though has small imperfections
in places. how often is it used?. Tonneau cover sits on there nicely to 
finish it of. and it has a chrome luggage rack. Its not concourse as it used
& enjoyed. though its perfectly capable of being showed as is.


 
 
Road Report
 
I have had two full days driving this car around in glorious weather and it
is absolutely fantastic with a wonderful sound to the engine & exhaust.
There are no issues with the gearbox. suspension or rear axle and the brakes
pull the car up as expected. The car was serviced recently and has just passed an
mot with no issues. Superb sounding cherry bomb exhaust.


 
 
Interior
 
The interior looks in good original condition. all dashboard dials. gauges
and switches work correctly and in the boot there is a spare wheel of the same 
sort with a new tyre and jack. All carpets are very good and the engine and boot
look just lovely.  


 
 
Wheels/ Tyres
 
Sits on the correct 13 " steel wheel. the correct dish for the hub as they say.
Shod with a good matching set of Good year tyres of the correct size & rating.


 
 
Final Word
 
The new keeper really will be getting a highly desirable and exceptionally clean 
classic which is a sure investment.


 
 
Delivery
 
I can arrange delivery on a trailer to anywhere in mainland UK. Please ask for
a quote. can also assist with export if required.
