1961 MG MGA 1600

Found in a barn in Hartford, CT where it was stored for over 30 years. Complete car, minimal rust in typical spots, but not terrible. A wonderful candidate for restoration as this is a numbers matching car.
Engine is free, compression is good, and motor spins while engaged in all gears. Brakes are shot, but it rolls and steers like a freakin' champ! Interior clearly needs help, but all manageable stuff. Actually cleaned up fairly nice. Floors are in decent shape, with small spots of rust. Again, nothing that would prevent you from getting her going and running as is. Everything is or can be serviceable in its current state. It really is very solid all around. I have the original top frame and really bad canvas.
My plan was to get it running, driving and stopping in its current state and run it like that while making little improvements along the way to eventually a nicely modified LeMans style racer (pic attached for inspiration!).
