A beautiful restored MGA....fresh show quality red paint, all new chrome and trim, all new interior, rebuilt engine (80 psi oil pressure at operating temperature), zero smoke, excellent synchromesh action, precise steering, sure braking (front disc brakes), new cloth covered wiring harness (the best single item to ensure long term reliability), new top, excellent tonneau and side curtains, 15" wire wheels, spotless, detailed engine bay, what can we add? Starts instantly, runs flawlessly, drives wonderfully, and.............ready for any local show.
On the road, starts instantly, runs flawlessly, maintains 75-80 psi oil pressure at operating temperature, gearbox is quiet and doesn't miss a beat going up or down through the geara, brakes work well, steering is 'as new,' excellent ride, all gauges and other electricals work, no rattles, door close and fit very well, even put the top and side curtains and they all fit well, has new seat belts, what else is there?
And MGAs make the perfect compromise in a classic English sports car. Easy cruising (assisted by the 1600's higher diff gearing) at 60-70-80 mph, a top speed approaching 100 mph, really effortless driving. And those beautiful lines.....regardless of price, hard to find ANY classic sports car better looking.
Parts are generally very inexpensive and widely available, simple to service and maintain, all reasons these were great cars in their day and now, sixty plus years later, even better.Click for legal info
