1959 MG MGA 1500

MGA 1500 roadster, 959

Recently took this car in trade via a Georgia owner….he told me the engine and transmission was rebuilt 7 years ago. Can’t verify but I thought the oil pressure was a bit low (at 40 psi when hot) so I removed the oil sump and checked the bottom end…..crank was excellent and now has new rod and main bearings and new oil pump. Runs beautifully, 5-60 psi oil pressure, o smoke, xcellent gearbox, eems to be much as was described to me.

Body is very good as is the red paint, ost of the chrome seems to be new (grille, umpers, tc.). And the dashboard is nicely painted to match the exterior, ll of the interior appears to be new, op is near new, ame with side curtains and tonneau, ngine bay is nice and clean, iring looks very good, nd everything electrical works.

Has wire wheels, ew knock offs, adial tires are of the correct size and in very good condition. As is battery, xhaust, ood floors, teel chassis, tc. Trunk is nicely carpeted, as a new jack and knock-off hammer.

Brakes were just done with all new wheel cylinders front and rear. Cowl surrounds have been reupholstered, riginal steering wheel looks to be in very good condition, as new seat belts, nd all of the original gauges work. Last owner told me the title shows 84,000 miles but the odometer only shows 46,000 miles so I suspect it has been replaced.

As the wing beading appears to be new, am guessing the fenders were removed when it was last repainted. MUCH better than seeing the wings beads painted or covered with bondo.

All in all, t starts instantly, uns perfectly, rives very well, tops, teers and handles nicely, as all relatively new weather equipment, ash and interior are really excellent, nd this car would show well at a local concours (but please don’t presume it is a Pebble Beach 1st place winner). The early MGAs were the prettiest with a nice grille and rear lights. Isn’t gonna frighten a Porsche driver in 0-60 but seems to move along the highway at 60, 0, 0 mph quite nicely.
