Description:

1957 MG MGA

This car was restored by the premier British Car shop in Oregon. It is a body off restoration with modifications to make the car more powerful and fun to drive. This is NOT a numbers matching car. The body, rame and tub came from different cars and the engine is a 5 main bearing B motor. This car is fast and really fun to drive. I am a big man- >6" >220# and the cockpit is comfortable for me. The overall build philosophy was to do only those things that aknowledgeableMG owner would do to enhance and improve the car. The primary visible difference is a custom roll bar that is removable. The list of things that were done to the car consists of 6 pages of single spaced type but here is a list of the high points;
Engine
B motor .030 over- selected because of additional displacement and 5 main bearing bottom endCross flow head- better breathing1.75 SU carbs-Mild street camUpgraded ignitionOil coolerLarger radiatorCeramic coated header
Drive line
5-speed Ford trans- Gives the car a true overdrive- 60 MPH/2900 RPM!!- and is a sweet boxLight FlywheelHD Clutch
Miscellaneous
Custom paint over a very painstaking body prep- the car shows extremely wellLeather interiorWood wheelKnock off Minilite style wheelsPolished burl dashCorrect instruments
And the list goes on. If you ask nice I will provide a complete parts list. I am reasonably sure that this is a one of a kind build- I have never seen an MGA done to this level and spec.
