Harry's Thoughts

I love British roadsters, and this car is absolutely no exception! The attention to detail and the investment made are unbelievable. I am certain its new owner will not be disappointed!

THE ESSENTIALS

ONLINE ONLY AUCTION at www.classicpromenade.com.  With no expense spared, this seductive black over red 1956 MGA Roadster is certainly one of the best examples of the slight British roadster in existence. Previously owned by a noted Austin Healy restorer Steve Spaulding, this MGA had been meticulously restored by the current owner.  The total investment in its ground up restoration of this roadster is over 1,000 hours and $140,000.  So you know the quality that was performed by Doctor Jag Technologies in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The restoration is fully documented with extensive accounting detail. This MGA is part of a collection that includes over 30 classic and vintage British sports cars.

The livery is a deep and incredibly well polished black, giving the car a more sinister look. The paints smooth surface accentuates all of the curves that make the MGA a classic design.  The black vinyl convertible top is new with soft and clear plastic windows. With a set of Minilite style wheels, racing mesh style grill, and mesh headlight covers, the aggressive personality of this car starts to take shape.

The beautiful red leather interior is stunning and is complimented by black wool carpets that makes this car really look and feel special. The seats are without flaw and you will notice red highlights tastefully added throughout. The painted black dash houses all the knobs and pulls that these cars are known for, and all work as expected. Featured in the instruments are a Jaeger speedometer and tachometer and Smiths temperature and fuel gauges. An MG four spoke steering wheel pulls everything together.

As with any British roadster, the fun begins when you first hear that motor hum. Under the hood you will see a neat and mostly clean compartment, with the expected inline four-cylinder engine, painted in a deeper red, with the period correct plate on the cover. The four-speed gearbox offers plenty of driver engagement during spirited driving.

An independent inspection was conducted, and the report is available for your review. It confirms the incredible condition of this roadster.

For more details and information, please call, text or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or harry@classicpromenade.com.  The MGA can be viewed in New Mexico.

Inspection report is for a different car. Separately, does the car come with the original wheels and grill insert?

We have connected with the Seller, and he said that the car does not come with the original wheels and grill insert.

Thank you for your input. We double-checked the inspection report- and it is the correct one. We are reaching out to the owner in regards to the original wheels and grill insert…

Perhaps the inspection report has been changed. What I saw was for an MGC — totally different car.

Interesting Fact: The MGA was produced by MG for seven years from 1955 to 1962. As the successor to the MG TG 1500 Midget, the MGA is a sports car that became MGs best-seller. This car was originally revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September of 1955. While 101,081 units were produced by the time production ended, the MGA only sold 5,869 in its home market of England. The design for the MGA dates all the way back to 1951 when a designer named Syd Enever hoped to create a streamlined version of a Le Mans car. This led to a 1.5-liter, 72 horsepower race car with a 0 to 60 acceleration time of 16.0 seconds. The MGA has performed well historically against other race cars and has won regional, as well as national championships, at the Sports Car Club of America competition. This two-door roadster is an impressively manufactured car that survives the test of time and proves to be a quality option for any car enthusiast!
