Features and Specifications
1962 MG MGA 1600II --
Very low mile MGA, Mark ll, dry and well preserved. Former owner had MG specialist in Michigan sort out mechanical work. Zero miles on new clutch installed by world renown Roadster Salon. Car drives nicely. Interior looks good with expected patina. Exterior has older repaint. Considering the low original miles, it probably deserves to be stripped to bare metal with a high-end respray. Tub is solid. Electrical appears to be in good order. Odometer and gauges function. Glass and chrome in good shape. Car has proper matched serial number engine.
To be clear, this is a running and driving example that had some significant mechanical work performed before we put the car into indoor storage. This is not a project car, nor does our purchase price/selling price reflect that. It can be enjoyed as is. But as a purveyor of fine classic cars and a well know restoration shop, we know this MGA has big upside if finished to a high standard. Seems like a shame to leave it as is, but no crime there. If you are interested in driving a classic with patina and more original in appearance. This is your car!
A quick side bar: Roadster Salon originally purchased this MGA as an ideal candidate for a show quality restoration, as these MGA Series ll cars have become quite rare and valuable. Since our current focus is almost exclusively Italian cars, and we have nearly a two year back log of restorations---we simply don't have the time to bring the car to the next level on spec. However, we can certainly take this on as a future customer project if desired. Give us a call, and we can discuss a budget for making this rare MGA into a show winner.
