WOW. this 1961 MGA 1600 (possible Deluxe) is 1 of only 415 MGA 1600's made that year. Most were MGA 1600 MKIIs and only a combination of only 6085 were made that year.

I purchased the car from an estate in Westchester County. NY last Summer.

The car was described to me as their Parade and Car Show vehicle.

I found it garaged and on 4 wheel dollies with her original PLY (non-radial) tires.

All fluids were drained and the car had not been registered or used since 2004.

I brought it to my mechanic in CT and with only fluids. a fuel pump and a tune up. she fired right up and drove fine. (except for the dry rotted tires.

I purchases 5 new Firestone Radials and new tubes and drove the car in CT for a month and even won a trophy at local car show.

I then had it shipped to sunny San Diego. CA in an enclosed carrier and now driving it here and getting lots of attention on the PCH 101.

The car had the following done;

electronic ignition

electric fuel pump

1 - 12 volt Battery still Positive Ground (earth)

top in great shape

side curtains in great shape

Newer carpet

Stainless steel pipe and muffler

The car had received a quality paint job decades ago and shows quite well for its age. The car odometer shows under 6. 00 miles and is original as far as the owners statements and signature on NY title and bill of sale.

The new CA title is clear registered with 5820 actual miles last month.

The only reason for selling is that I have a 1964 TR4 which I have been restoring for 2 years and I just can't justify 2 Vintage British Roadsters.

The car runs great and stops great too

Wire wheels need truing but drives fine under 60mph.

It has the usual early model MG oil leaks since these have no rear main seal.

The interior is also in great condition. but the leather seats had become brittle and stiff and some mice found their way into the seat bottom foam and nested there. So I am replacing the seat backs and bottoms with new foam and new leather covers.

I also bought a new tonneau cover. The top is in great shape as well as the side curtains.

This may be the lowest original miles MGA on the planet.

Call with any questions. Bruce 203. 470. 5701
