This is a gorgeous 1961 MGA roadster that has benefitted from a professional full body-off restoration.  This is a complete turn-key example that is ready for rallies, tours and enjoyment.  It comes complete with all the expected accessories including the top, side curtains, tools, shop manuals, car cover, tonneau cover, windwings, etc.

The former owner was a physician that wanted a reliable and strong performing British sports car.  He found this MGA in 2012 and then set out on a full restoration where every nut and bolt was restored or serviced.  The restoration was completed by 2016 and is fully documented in a few inch thick binder filled with receipts and photos.  The MGA also includes the British Heritage Certificate.

This MGA was built on August 16th and 17th of 1960 and was sent directly to the US.  Its livery is elegant in the traditional Old English White.  Since the body was removed from the frame, all portions of the body were completely painted, as well as the frame, suspension and other components.  The paint is very nice but has not been completely color sanded.  This MGA can be comfortable on the show field but was really designed to be driven.  There are many small touched up areas on the paint from normal use, really not noticeable except upon close inspection.  The panel fit overall is very nice with the drivers door being slightly off, as you can see in the photos.  The chrome and trim are all new or in excellent condition.  Items such as the grill and such are all new.

We love the sexy, curvy look of the MGA.  At any angle of viewing, it just looks perfect.  And with the new fully balanced classic knock-off 60-spoke wire wheels it really completes the look.  The black leather interior features white piping and black carpets and the correct rubber floor mats.  The leather is very soft and supple.  The last owner had a custom center console built with modern conveniences.  The tonneau cover is black Haartz cloth canvas and the newer convertible top is black vinyl.  The interior and top are all in very nice condition showing limited use.  A completely hidden amplifier and speakers are ready for use with your iPhone or other device.

The engine was completely rebuilt and details are included in the attachments.  Most all of the internal components, similar to all aspects of the car, are new.  Based on the Heritage Certificate it appears that the engine is the original “matching numbers” engine from the factory.  The engine compartment is beautifully detailed and the engine has a few important performance upgrades including the Petronix electronic ignition, and a new Lucas sports coil and premium rotor.

This MGA is a pleasure to drive and performs very well.  It also flew through our 158-point inspection.  This MGA comes with all the desired accessories to make this ready to enjoy.

For more details and information, please call, text or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or harry@classicpromenade.com.  The MGA is in our Phoenix showroom.

Is the steering wheel covered because there is some damage or merely to protect it ?

It is a leather cover. We did not remove it. I would expect the steering wheel to be new or nearly as new since the doctor basically restored everything except the windshield frame. But we did not remove it to check.

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!
