Description:

1959 MG MGA 1600

This car is an absolute hoot to drive! It goes great, stops with authority, and steers true at the twitch of the wheel. Records show the engine and transmission were overhauled in 2005. In 2007 the fuel tank and system were cleaned and both carburetors rebuilt at 87,695 miles. A complete brake overhaul occurred at that same time and mileage. New tires were installed in 2014 at 88,088 miles. The odometer shows 88,431 as of today.

This is a 1959 MGA 1600 which replaced the 1500 in May of that year. The coupe body style is rather rare as most 1600s that were built were roadsters. Several manuals along with shop work and parts invoices are included.

The car has been repainted in a deep red metallic, and has the usual expected very minor irregularities of such. There are a couple very small bubbles forming, but that's about it. There is minor chrome spotting on the windshield strips Some paint has been chipped at the joint just behind the hood. One must look very closely to notice anything amiss. It appears to be recent upholstery and carpets, but the door kick panels are somewhat wavy. Other than the windshield washers and tachometer, everything works.

I am advertising the car and setting up appointments to show for the owner. Car is sold AS-IS FOB Carnation, Washington, and no guarantees are expressed or implied. Seller may cancel auction at abny time since car is for sale locally.
