It has Pertronix electronic ignition and L.E.D. Lights in the rear and a third brake light in the rear window. It also has L.E.D. Turn lights in the front. People can actually see you! l.E.D. Lights are also in the instruments so you can actually see those. All instruments work properly although speedometer reads about 10 mph faster than you are going.New clutch, pressure plate, and release bearing were installed about 3k miles ago.The original 1600 engine runs perfectly with no smoke at any time and starts instantly. The original 4 speed transmission shifts as it should.New brakes were installed, again about 3k miles ago. This car has disc in front and drums in the rear.The interior was completely redone starting with insulation through out even up under dash. The interior is a beautiful cream color with red piping that matches the exterior paint. The carpeting is the correct grey and the headliner in the correct tan as they should be for the coupe. They are both without any imperfections and again installed about 3k miles ago. The carpeting is protected by MG rubber floor mats.The glass is in great shape except for the windshield that has two small rock chips.New front and rear bumpers with over riders were installed. The front grill is in excellent shape. The bright work around window and door trip has some very small scratches and checking but still very presentable. Tail light glass is new as well as front turn signals.The paint is a beautiful red that has a dark tent to it so it is not bright red but attractive. It is a single stage paint and is in good driver condition. It had 3 heavy coats of paint applied and then sanded and buffed. Some tiny imperfections can be found if you really look for them, again a daily driver.The trunk(boot) is totally insulated as well and has a spare with original style steel wheel. The wheels on the car are made in the U.K. Minilite style aluminum wheels with all season radial tires in very good shape.The engine compartment is very clean and original looking with new hoses and bright shiny S.U. carbs that are tuned to perfection.This is an awesome car in every respect, runs great, stops straight, and is a true eye catcher. It has won first place in 3 little local car shows and a judges choice also. It should certainly continue to increase in value as only 826 left hand drive MGA COUPES this year were sent to North America !!!
