WOW. this 1961 MGA 1600 is 1 of only 314 MGA 1600's made that year. Most were MGA 1600 MKIIs and only 1 of 37 Left Hand Drives sent to North America in 1961. This may be the lowest original miles MGA on the planet!

Matching number car. Engine # 16GA-U-H 26757

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. I have driven it over 100 miles here in CA.

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. Some cars' paint looks good at 20' or 10' away. this one looks good up close too! There are a couple of small paint chips and a scratch or two. The car as pictured has NOT been detailed or even waxed since I got it in August and will look even better after done. 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 Overdrive which I have been restoring for 2 years and I just can't justify 2 Vintage British Roadsters.

The Blaupunkt radio does not work. I do have a new antenna for the car.

Directional signals work as well does the horn.

The light in center of the front bumper is a working period correct LUCAS Fog lamp that does cover the hand crank hole in front bumper .

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.

There is some white smoke at idle from dried out valve seals. but drives fine.

The carbs should be also rebuilt since the car sat so long without running.

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 full leather covers and armrest at a cost of over $1600. (brand new) Custom made  NOT Moss or Victoria British covers. I have kept the original seat covers to show the low wear. They just got too stiff to make nice and comfortable. The new seats are super comfy.   I also just put a new Leather steering wheel cover on with red stitching that I ordered from England.

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