This is the model that many consider to be the best of the series. It retains all the classic styling of the early cars and has all the later improvements.This is a very nice older restoration on a very straight & solid MGA. It received a complete restoration approx. 12 years ago. The paint has held up well and would be considered a strong driver condition. It still shines bright. The chrome looks great and appears to be new or re-chromed when the car was restored. It had a complete engine and transmission rebuild recently at a cost of over $5000 and it runs and drives wonderfully. Makes better than new power, pulls hard in all gears, shifts up and down effortlessly. It holds excellent oil pressure at any speed and temp. It runs cool all day and I would not hesitate to take it on trips orroadrallies. While not perfect it is a nice driver and would be perfect for local shows or to enjoy as a summer driver. It does not smoke or burn oil. The engine was properly painted and finished with correct MGAcolors and looks like new.
It has a newer top that fits well with good clear windows. The leather interior is new from Moss Motors. Not only did it get new leather seats but the foam inner seats and seat back padding is completely new and fells great to sit on. New trunk carpet has also been installed over the original and solid trunk floor. It has fiveoriginalwire wheels and the correct 1600 engine with front disc brakes.
The 1600 cars are much better and safer cars thanks to the improved braking and increased HP. They can be driven in modern traffic at highway speeds and stop more quickly than earlier cars with drum brakes. It has added seat belts for safety as well as a nice periodcorrectluggage rack.
Please look at all the photos as they are a good indicator of condition. Please feel free to call with questions or to set up an inspection. This is a no reserve auction because it is my experience the market will price this car correctly. It will be an excellent value for the winningbidderas well as a fair price for me.
Please do not bid until you have done all your homework and are confident in the value of the car. I require a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $500 as soon as the auction ends and the balance within 5 days. No exceptions please. I have sold dozens of classic cars on eBay and every one of them resulted in a very happy new owner. This one will be no exception. I can be reached at:

The original ad implies there is no reserve. I ran this car no-reserve over a month ago and due to serious and suddenhealth issue the buyer was unable to complete the sale. I did not edit this ad prior torunning it and there is a very low reserve. My apologies if it caused any confusion. Please feel free to call me for any further clarification.
