GR Auto Galley is please to offer this extremely rare example of English excellence. When introduced, the "A" charted a new direction for MG. The cars were lower with sleek lines, more roomy interior, low seating position and more powerful. Most importantly was the departure of the body-on-frame design for a uni-body construction. The car was stiffer, much more ridged, and demonstrated vastly improved handling capabilities. The A transcended MG to the sports car world and developed a rich racing history. To this day, the MGA is considered the best overall MG produced.
The 1961 MGA 1600 Coupe offered here, Car number GHDL 94446 is one of just 14 examples imported to North America in 1961 and one of just 101 overall examples produced for the Model year. The car features its 1600 cc engine, 4 speed transmission, front disc brakes, dual carbs, original gauges, luggage rack and classic banjo steering wheel. The car has been treated to a complete restoration finished in Iris Blue exterior paint with grey fender welting, brand new Moss Motors interior with correct coordinating piping on, highly detailed engine bay, excellent chrome and brightwork and restored frame and underside. Mechanically, this little Britt fires right up at the tweak of the key and offers up a wonderful British motoring experience.
When it comes collecting cars, production numbers and uniqueness matters. 1600 coupes are extremely rare and considered a holy grail of British collectibles. An example such as this is a must consider at the price offered here.
