“The First of a New Line” – That was the marketing approach for MG as it rolled out its fresh MGA to the public in 1955. These cars were vastly different from any MG prior featuring a wider chassis, lower seating position, a more powerful “B-series” motor etc. it also features independent suspension and rack and pinion steering. The body was a much cleaner design sitting lower and wider with beautiful consistent body lines and a teethy front grill. MGAs are ideal collector cars. They're affordable, simple to work on, rugged and attractive. Parts are readily available and moderately priced which can be surprising given the exotic appearance.
We are pleased to offer this wonderfully done 1960 MGA Roadster. This car went through a complete mechanical and cosmetic nut and bolt restoration over a two year period and was completed in 2004. Since, the car has been cared for, routinely service, and thoroughly enjoyed by two owner enthusiasts. At the time of restoration, the was completely disassembled, the block was bore and honed to .020 over, and assembled with newly polished crank, new pistons, valves, guides, rebuilt head etc. All mechanical aspects of the car including transmission, brakes, suspension etc. were fully restored and / or refurbished at that time. The car was painted in its current livery, yellow over black interior with parchment seating. After 13 years, the car still looks great in all areas including paint, excellent chrome and bright-work, a highly detailed engine compartment, and a very tidy interior. Highlights include Wire wheels, dual SU carbs, Banjo style steering wheel, Moss motors interior, Jaeger gauges, original data plate, wire wheels, full size spare, excellent convertible soft top, full tonneau, etc. The car has been serviced and looked after by the best people in the business including: Little British Car Co. of Farmington Hills, MI and internationally renown John Twist of University Motors. As a result, today the car remains completely turn key, of the button and ready for immediate enjoyment. The restoration and service history back to 2003 is completely documented with all parts and service receipts all organized chronologically in a thick three ring binder. Recent notable service includes complete lubrication of engine, chassis, and suspension components, full brake service, new crank seal and sleave, new hoses, new king pin seals, speedo cable, spring pads and bushings, timing cover gasket, transmission seal, all new fluids etc.
MGA's are wonderful cars to own and a spirited car to drive. Their classic English styling remains timeless and is welcome in all motoring circles. These cars remain solid motoring investments and at this price, this MGA is a must consider.
