1959 MG

A Roadster

The MGA was in a completely different league to its predecessors. A new era sports car for its day, it was extremely stylish and an instant hit, selling more than 13,000 units in its first year of production. The MGA was a true 100+ mph sport car, this particular MGA with its period supercharger is even more.

This MGA was acquired in 2009 after sitting for more than 20 years by its most recent owner. It then embarked on a complete and thorough restoration with no stone unturned. The addition of a period supercharger was added to bring a reliable rise in both horsepower and torque figures. A 3.9:1 differential from a 1964 MGB handles power distribution. The braking comes from the MGAs original front disc brakes and the addition of larger MGB rear drum brakes. The restoration is quite superb in every respect.

The restoration cost of this MGA far exceeds the cost of replacement, you will not find a better example.

An exceptional 1950s sports car and one of the best driving, most reliable and fun sports cars of its period, this MGA is complete with its British Heritage Trust Certificate, original factory brochure, and copy of its owners and warranty manuals.

This MGA is absolutely superb in every way. It is eligible for some of the finest historic rallies and comfortable both on the road as well as the concours lawn.

Offered for a fraction of its restoration cost.
