THE PERFECT RESTORATION PROJECT!!

 

THIS A GENUINE LOVINGLY OWNED 1 OWNER FROM NEW MATCHING NUMBERS (1957) MGA 1500 FIXED HEAD LHD COUPE IN ORIGINAL OLD ENGLISH WHITE WITH RED LEATHER INTERIOR! GENUINE 73188 MILES FROM NEW! YOU WONT FIND MANY LIKE THIS TO RESTORE! CHECK OUT THE REG PLATE :-)  THE CAR HAS JUST BEEN IMPORTED FROM ARIZONA WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNERS FAMILY BY ME! WAS BOUGHT NEW IN 1957 AND DRIVEN UNTIL THE OWNERS DEATH IN 1997 AND PARKED UP SINCE UNDER A SHELTER UNTIL NOW!  THE CAR IS IN TOTALLY ORIGINAL COMPLETE CONDITION! EVEN COMES WITH BOXES OF BRAND NEW SPARES BOUGHT IN 1993 TO RESTORE INCLUDING NEW HEADLINING, RUBBERS/SEALS ETC! 

 

THE CAR FOR THE MOST PART IS COMPLETELY RUST FREE! ALL ORIGINAL NEVER TOUCHED, THE OWNER PUT PRIMER ON THE BODYWORK TO COVER POOR PAINT PATCHES ONLY! NO DAMAGE OR RUST!  THE CAR IS AS FOUND APART FROM CLEANING THE SEATS OFF AND FREEING UP THE ENGINE WHICH DOES TURN OVER NO PROBLEM! WE HAVE NOT TRIED TO START IT OR DRIVE AT ALL , SO VEHICLE IS SOLD AS SEEN BUT WAS IN WEEKLY USE UNTIL THE OWNERS DEATH! THE CAR IS ALL THERE, INTERIOR IS ORIGINAL WITH ORIGINAL CARPET/ SEATS ETC, HEADLINING IS POOR, AS IS THE SUN BURNT DASH TOP, BUT APART FROM THAT HAS ORIGINAL RADIO! STEERING WHEEL, SWITCHES ETC, ALL THERE TO USE! THE BODYWORK AS PER THE PICS IS STRAIGHT AND LOOKS THE BE RUST FREE UNDERNEATH AND IN AMAZING CONDITION, THESE WERE RUSTY IN THE 60'S SO TO FIND ONE WITH ALL THE CORNERS/SILLS/VALANCES ALL THERE IS AMAZING! ALL GLASS/LIGHTS ARE GOOD AS IS THE CHROME INCLUDING THE LUGGAGE RACK! COUPLE OF DENTS TO FRONT BUMPER ONLY! SPARE WAS UNUSED WITH ORIGINAL TYRE! AMAZING REG PLATE SOLD WITH THE CAR! 

 

I CANNOT STRESS WHAT AN AMAZING PROJECT THIS WOULD BE IF WE DIDN'T HAVE MANY OTHER VEHICLES TO SORT OUT THAT WE HAVE IMPORTED WE WOULD KEEP TO DO OURSELVES AS THIS CAR HAS THE MAKINGS OF BEING A BEAUTY ESPECIALLY WITH THE PROVENANCE!

 

WE HAVE SOME HANDWRITTEN HISTORY FOR LOTS OF ITS LIFE, THE ORIGINAL TITLE DOC AND HANDBOOK! PLUS LOTS OF OTHER BITS AND BOBS, CAR IS TAXES PAID AND READY TO REGISTER ONCE COMPLETE AND WOULD BE MOT EXEMPT!
