Description:

1956 MG MGA

JUST OUT OF 40 YEAR BARN STORAGE THIS MGA WAS FOUND IN ADAMS, ASSACHUSETTS. LAST ON THE ROAD APPARENTLY IN 1975 WITH MASS INSPECTION STICKER FROM 75 STILL IN WINDSHIELD. FROM WHAT I'VE BEEN ABLE TO TELL, CCORDING TO THE MGA WEBSITE, NLY 6,272 MGA'S WERE BUILT AS COUPES, ND 1956 WAS THE FIRST YEAR BUILDING THE COUPE. ONLY 16 WERE BUILT IN 56, ND ONLY 6 WERE IMPORTED TO THE US IN 1956. UNFORTUNATELY, IME HAS NOT BEEN KIND. THIS MGA WILL NEED A COMPLETE RESTORATION AS THE BODY IS IN POOR CONDITION. ORIGINALLY THE CAR WAS OLD ENGLISH WHITE, ND HAS HAD A PAINT JOB IN THE PAST, UCH BONDO WAS USED. THERE IS RUST DAMAGE TO BOTH FENDERS, OTH QUARTERS, NNER WHEEL HOUSES, ODY SEAMS,AND INNER DOOR STRUCTURES.THE TRUNK FLOOR AND TUB STRUCTURE SEEM SOLID, RAME IS MOSTLY SOLID WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE INNER FRAME RAIL UNDER THE DRIVER'S DOOR. WOOD FLOORS ARE INTACT AND SOLID. ALL GLASS IS THERE AND IN GOOD CONDITION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A SMALL STONE CHIP IN THE WINDSHIELD., LL WINDOW TRIM IS THE AND IN GOOD SHAPE. FRONT GRILL HAS SMALL DINGS. SEATS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE, ASH IS FAIR, NSTRUMENT PANEL GOOD. AFTER I GOT IT HOME I VERIFIED THE ENGINE WAS NOT FROZEN AND TURNED EASILY. SO I CHANGED THE OIL, ILED THE POINTS, ILED THE CYLINDERS, HREW A BATTERY AND A CAN OF GAS IN THE TRUNK WITH AN IN-LINE FUEL PUMP, ND IT RUNS, ND RUNS WELL, ITH NO KNOCKS OR FUNNY NOISES, ND ONLY A LITTLE SMOKE INITIALLY WITH WENT AWAY. THEN I BLEED THE BRAKES AND CLUTCH AND THEY WORK AS WELL.

CAR WILL BE SOLD WITH A BILL OF SALE ONLY. THIS VEHICLE NEVER HAD A TITLE
