This unique 1958 MGA roadster was left in the Arizona desert for for over 38 years in complete original unrestored condition. It sat in the sunny Californian climate until I bought it. I had searched for a long time for the right genuine solid original car. I purchased this MGA roadster with the intention of restoring it in my retirement. However circumstances have changed and I now am reluctantly selling the car.

It is a very very solid car having seen little or no rain in its lifetime. It was covered in the Arizona desert sand when I bought it and the engine bay still is. It comes with the drivers and passenger seat frames. It appears like it needs no rust repair as I haven't found anything although I cannot guarantee that. I believe it has the original engine and gearbox still fitted.

VIN # HDA43/57949

I would liked to have got the car running and roadworthy then drive it for a while as it is with the fantastic patina faded paintwork.

The car is located in North Devon near South Molton. It is available for viewing by appointment at weekends Fri-Sun.

The car is beautiful and a true survivor but I stress it requires complete restoration and is not currently drivable . I will not accept silly low offers so please don't waste my or your time. Thanks.  

Car will not be released until funds have been cleared. I require a £200 deposit via PayPal within 24 hours of auction end. Cash on collection preferred. Car will need to be collected on trailer.

In response to some questions.  The complete seats are included both needing retrim and restoration. I have pictures if required.  The UK import duties have been paid. I have the clear California title for the car and it is recorded on the new DVLA NOVA system.  I am open to offers just not silly low ones. The car is advertised elsewhere so I reserve the right to remove it from eBay if it sells elsewhere.
