1957 MG MGA
This is a very solid older restoration that I would describe as an excellent “driver quality” car that can be enjoyed as a fun reliable driver and shown proudly in local car shows. It was completely restored about 10-12 years ago and driven little since. The fact that it still looks so good speaks well to the overall quality of the restoration.
It is a solid car with no signs of rust and a damage free body that appears to have been stripped to bare metal and received a complete repaint of all surfaces. I cannot find any signs of rust repair or damage repair. The fit lines are all good and everything lines up well. It runs out beautifully. It shifts up and down just as it did new and the brakes stop firm and straight. It does not burn any oil and shows only the usual small drips after use. The engine and transmission were rebuilt and maintained by University Motors in Michigan. Known for their expertise in MG's. Everything seems to work as it should. The moss Motors top is in very good condition with signd of little use and fits very well. There is a set of un-restored side curtains included. The steel wheels were restored some time after the car was and look great. All the major chrome shines beautifully with no pitting dents or dings and all the chrome trim fits nicely. The interior is a moss motors leather seat set with everything looking very tidy with little wear. The foam seat inner padsare firm and seem to have been rebuilt when the car was restored.
All in all it appears to be a very original straight solid car. I have owned many of these MGA's and currently have a 62 Mark II that I drive all summer. I believe these cars offer a great opportunity for anyone who wants to enjoy owning a great classic that has great appreciation potential, hile enjoying an iconic convertible. Parts are plentiful, nexpensive and mechanically they are very simple and easy to work on. I can't think of a better entry level classic that offers more carefree enjoyment than a vintage MG.
The time to ask questions and complete inspections is prior to bidding. The reserve is very reasonable and I fully expect this car to sell either through this auction or prior to its end. I have sold many vintage cars on eBay and every one of them has resulted in a happy new owner who got a better than retail deal on a great car. I would gladly buy any of them back. I expect this sale to be no different. So please bid only if you have done your homework and you are ready willing and able to complete the sale.
I reserve the right to end this sale anytime if the car is no longer available. Most of the cars I have listed have sold prior to end of the auction so if you are genuinely interested in this car please call me with questions or if you are lucky enough to live close to central Ohio come inspect it in person. It is well worth your time.
It is of course sold AS-IS and Where-IS. I can store it in the heated facility it is in now for up to 30 days at no addition charge. However I require a $500 NON REFUNDIBLE deposit within 24 hours after the sale has ended and the balance within 5 days regardless of when you pick it up. I will not release the car until all funds have cleared. I will provide a clear title upon receipt of cleared funds. I have sold several cars to buyers in Europe and would be happy to assist with this sale to any buyers abroad.
