Technical specifications, photos and description:
MGA 1500 roadster. 1958
Last owner for over twenty years. twenty years ago. he spent a lot of money on a body off. frame up restoration and has only driven the car for around 2. 00 miles.
Excellent body. beautiful deep green paint. still 'as new' interior. after a long test drive and finding the performance was more like a 1600cc engine. I checked the casting number (is the correct 1500). did a compression check (140-150 psi compression in every cylinder). found the oil pressure to be fine (60 psi). and a complete lack of smoke.
Looked at the underneath while on a lift. and sure enough. painted and detailed inside the driveshaft tunnel. above the back axle. under and behind the dash (see photos) absolutely rust and damage free. still some parts stickers on new brake and suspension parts.
Chrome appears to have all been replaced. dashboard is detailed as for show. has an expensive Brooklands style steering wheel. wiring harness was replaced as were most of the electrics (turn signal box. voltage regulator. generator. starter. etc. ). on the road. brakes. steering. ride. handling are all first rate. And really needs nothing for a low key show or general use.
MGAs are among this most beautiful of all English sports cars. reliable. easy to drive. and very civilized with quick. precise rack and pinion steering. big powerful brakes. soft ride. and flexible engine performance. Will easily cruise at 70. 80. or more mph and. thus. has contemporary performance.
Essentially. a buyer will be getting a $40-50. 00 restoration for a fraction of the original cost.
This car runs and drives like new. and is ready for a wonderful season of classic sports car driving.
