MG A 1500 1958 (Historic Plate) British Racing Green
The MGA dates back to 1951 when MG designer Syd Enever created a streamlined body for an MG TD Le Mans, but it was a few years later before the car replaced the MG TF 1500 and it was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1955 under the advertising slogan "The first of a new line".
A total of 101,081 MGA's were built before the end of production in July 1962 when it was replaced by the MGB and of these, only 5,869 cars were sold in the UK.
According to the Heritage Certificate, this stunning 1958 MGA 1500 Roadster - Chassis No: HDR43/53336, Engine No: BP15GB-24492 was built in Abingdon on 18th June 1958 for the North American market and sold new in California, USA.
It was imported to the UK in 1990 and underwent a complete 'nut & bolt' rebuild and in 1994/5 including many new panels and a full mechanical overhaul and Engine rebuild. This work was undertaken by marque specialist Simon J Robinson in Darlington on behalf of a Dr J Stubbins from South Glamorgan in Wales who commissioned all of the works which came to a total of £17,500.
The quality of this restoration was so good that this car still appears as if the rebuild was only carried out a couple of years ago. There is absolutely not corrosion anywhere and the underside of the car is almost like new. The exterior paint, interior and chromework are all superb and It drives beautifully and has only covered just over 12,000 miles since the rebuild.
It is finished in a Beautiful British Racing Green with a Tan leather interior, black carpets, full weather quipment including a Black canvas Soft Top, Tonneau Cover and Side Screens, wooden Mota-Lita Steering Wheel, upgraded period Radiomobile stereo with iPod lead, build plaque from Simon J Robinson, period chrome door mirrors, added side repeater flashers, its original and rebuilt 1500cc Engine with 'unleaded' conversion, rebuilt 4 speed Manual Gearbox, Stainless Steel Exhaust System and new Chrome Wire Wheels with new Goodyear Tyres.
This is without doubt one of the best MGA's that we have had for sale for some time and we are sure that it will not be here for long!
Upon sale it will be given a new MOT and pre-sales checkover/service and it will come with our own 6 month Mechanical Warranty which can be extended and upgraded if required.
