1957 MG MGA description
Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this extremely pretty and attractive MGA Coupe. The coupe model is 10 times as rare as the roadster, and is it also uncommon to find one restored to this very nice level on such a well-preserved original car. This MG was recently purchased from a caring Southern California British car enthusiast. The car was specialist restored in Arizona approximately 5 to 7 years ago. Before then, It lived in the ownership of a single family from new in the Pacific Northwest. The car was enjoyed by the daughter of the family, who was it's caretaker through her college years.
This impressive MGA has been lovingly maintained since new. It is well-tuned, starts easily on the button with no smoke or noises, revs well and has very good oil pressure. It runs, shifts, drives, brakes, and handles all very well and safely. It's mechanically excellent with lots of restoration, maintenance work, and new parts. There are receipts for a complete engine rebuild by British Car Specialists in Stockton, CA in 2003 with few miles since.
The previous restoration included beautiful new paint in it's original Chariot Red, new rubber kit, windshield, chromework, wiring harness, fully retrimmed interior in black in correct materials including leather seats, panel kit, wool carpet kit, headliner, door seals, 48-spoke chrome wheels, radial tires, etc. along with much mechanical work (brakes, carb rebuild, etc.)
This attractive MGA 1500 Coupe is a rare offering in this condition. It has an enviable 3-owner history from new. It is well-documented by a thick folder of receipts for parts and maintenance from the 1980's. The car has been correctly restored and is holding up beautifully today. It is ready to be immediately enjoyed and loved by it's next owner.
