Prepared by us a year old, back on the market (I think the owner decided to purchase a Ferrari). Rare 1600 Mk II (around 8,700 built out of 101,000 MGAs), few miles on a rebuilt original 1622cc engine (let me explain...while, on paper, this engine is a mere 22cc larger than the previous MGA's 1600 engine, it is actually quite different....has revised combustion chambers, bigger valves, with an 8.9:1 compression ratio it is the highest c:r of any B Series engine and its 89hp is just a bit less than an early MGB's 95hp. In fact, the later MGA twin cams were rated at 100hp). No smoke cold or hot, maintains excellent oil pressure, quiet valves, pulls stronger through the gears yet I was able to pull smoothly from 1,000 rpm in 3rd gear.
57,000 original miles, excellent wiring and electrics, rebuilt front suspension with Urethane bushings, new springs and lower control arms. Wood floors are excellent as is the chassis and the metal strips that support the floor pieces.
Excellent transmission, quiet in first and reverse gears, excellent synchromesh, feels like new. Same with steering, brakes (discs), ride, handling, etc. Considering it is sixty years old, quite remarkable.
Show qualify dove gray paint (an original color), mostly new interior, wire wheels, excellent chrome, brand new top and tonneau, very good side curtains, carpeted trunk, original banjo style steering wheel, all original gauges work, and most of the rubber seals have been replaced. Along with fender beading (fenders were removed when it was painted).
A beautiful example of the last sub model of MGA.
