GREAT DRIVER. Vehicle InformationVIN:BMC61YD32458Stock:0609Mileage:42,500Color:WhiteTrans:ManualEngine:Twin CamMPG: Drivetrain:RWD Video Description Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this excellent original MGA Twin Cam Roadster amazingly still wearing it's original paintwork and trim. This car was purchased by us last year out of a prominent San Francisco Bay area car collection where it was the star out of the group of 14 other MG's. This car was purchased new on April 11, 1961 by a Franklyn Bruce Swartz of Sacramento, California. It was enjoyed by him until it was sold on January 18th, 1989 into the MG collection and appears to have been stored in a climate controlled building with other cars since then.The bodywork and paint on this car are original and pretty untouched. The passenger door has suffered a few light dings and attempted touch-up paint. Panel fit is great. Paintwork is very good to excellent original lacquer with a lovely shine to it. There's the usual small chips, wear and tear from being original for 60 years…There is a small blend/repair around the driver's side B-post area, but the rest of the car paint meters a single thickness of paint all the way around. Chromework is superb, still showing it's bright blue factory chrome. The original Triplex windshield glass is superb.The car's interior is completely original too. It shows original leather seats, armrest, carpets, panel kit, dash facia, sidecurtain stowage bag, shift knob. Only the door seals and front cockpit capping have been replaced. The soft top is only the second one fitted and it's a period quality Robbins item.Mechanically, the car drives very well. We have just rebuilt the entire Dunlop braking system and renewed the ignition system. We will be posting an exciting driving video shortly.The car includes it's jack and handle, front grille protection bar, some tools, tool bag, 2 boxes of old and new spares, sidecurtain set, knock-off hammer.This very rare MGA is finished in a superb traditional color scheme. It still retains it's original title from 1961 and original pair of California issued license plates. It has lived here in California in the perfect car climate for all of it's life under the possession of only two owners. Overall, a surely irreplaceable and lightly used original and low mileage Twin Cam Roadster.***************** IMPORTANT PLEASE READ BELOW ***************** SELLER REQUIRES A NON-REFUNDABLE $2,000 USD TOTAL DEPOSIT FOR ALL VEHICLE PURCHASES.
