Motoring of a bygone era, this lovely MGA will transport you back in time to the old days of “Safety Fast!” This MGA is built with those top down, Sunday drives in mind.
As the replacement for the increasingly outdated ‘traditional’ MG’s such as the outgoing TF, the MGA brought in a completely new sense of styling and ushered in a new era for the marque. Gone was the traditional running board design for a single styled envelope fully enclosing the width and length of the car. The new ‘MGA’ would feature a body on frame design with the BME 1489cc 4 cylinder ‘B’ series engine driving the wheels through a 4 speed gearbox. Originally the car had 68hp which was soon uprated to 72hp; this in combination with a low slung and relatively light body gave the MGA spirited performance for the time.
This Australian delivered matching numbers MGA 1500 was treated to a comprehensive restoration to exacting standards, completed in 2018 and is in exceptional condition having covered little milage since the restoration. This is one of the best restorations on an MGA we have come across in a while and is exquisitely presented in original Colorado red with black leather trim. Both engine and transmission are matching numbers.
The MGA is accompanied by a swathe of restoration and maintenance receipts as well as a certificate of authenticity confirming the original colour, optional wire wheels and adjustable steering column. This MGA is an absolute delight to drive with old English charm, snappy steering and brilliant smooth mechanical feel behind the wheel – this is what true English motoring is all about!
Vehicle comes with RWC and balance of QLD registration (not including transfer fees)
