         Needs

This MGA has not been driven much.   Although it drives and brakes well it will need;

Brakes fluid changing and bleeding; fluid is 9-10 years old

Engine needs a good tuning including precision timing

Idles fast due to weak throttle return spring

Emergency brake cable is loose – needs adjusting

Wheel  balancing and alignment; wheels have not been trued or balanced in any way

      Other Issues

Needs replacement of knock off hub caps; current ones are old. do not fit well (and are ugly!)

Replacement grill; has some nicks/ scratches that are obvious up close

Turn signal needs new leather ring to slow it down

Gas gauge sending unit at tank is temperamental; probably needs replacement

Door gaps are too wide. should be adjusted if possible

Outfitted with good MGB radiator that has no hood rod hole

Has a radio delete plate on dash but originally had a radio – need a replacement radio

No convertible  top is available

No spare tire

I think I have captured all the details but call  404 434-6942 to discuss or arrange a viewing.
