This 1960 MGA 1600 is a beautiful blue roadster with terrific details and impressive paperwork. It's the kind of driver's car that's ideal when looking for one classic that you can collect, drive, and just admire no matter if it's on the show field or under the lights of your garage.
<br><br> There are a few body styles out there that make you say "Wow!" from the moment they come into view, and the MGA is in that very select class. The correct Iris Blue paint was given a high quality respray in 2015, and there was a large overall investment in the restoration. That's how you get such a glossy presentation on such well-done sheetmetal. So the sunlight loves to radiate off the body as it showcases what makes the MGA an icon. It's in the long flowing fenders that help create the low-cut doorline, the aggressive rear fenders that kick up for the wheels, and the unmistakably smooth European trunk (boot) design. There's shining brightwork everywhere from the curvy chrome bumpers to the windshield frame. Even the muffler and exhaust tip that unmistakable look of bright quality. Plus, you'll love the true sports car details, like the wide wheels with true knock-off hubs. And the wire mesh grille is a race-inspired piece that gives this a unique look.
<br><br> The British have always excelled at color combinations, and this interior proves it. The black is a tasteful but distinct contrast to the exterior blue and dash. Plus, the blue piping on the seats and armrest is a masterstroke of coordination. We have receipts showing thousands $$$$ invested here in 2018, and so you have supple leather upholstery, newer carpeting, and interesting details, like the classic Motorola AM radio that's there for display. This has the best of classic motoring with a banjo-style sports steering wheel, clear British Jaeger gauges, and the crisp action of the gearstick. It's true purist motoring that will have you wanting to go for a drive on every sunny day. And if you do ever get caught in the rain, the folding roof (also new in 2018) and side curtains are much more substantial than previous modes to keep you dry for the drive home.
<br><br> Part of the collectability of this roadster has to do with its motor. The 1600cc powerplant was an upgrade over the earlier models, and this one is absolutely ready to be showcased. Glossy red block paint and a shining valve cover sit at the heart of this tidy engine bay. This has investments in classic pieces you love, like the rebuilt dual carb setup. It also mixes in great modern driving features, like high temp plug wires, new water pump, and an electric fan on the radiator. It fires up eagerly from the pull of the start knob. This MGA inspires driving confidence with new brakes, front discs, and an overall solid feeling on the road. And you are in firm control over it all with the four-speed manual transmission.
<br><br> The sale comes with one of the most comprehensive paperwork files around. This includes the original bill of sale, warranty card, an owner's manual, build receipts, maintenance records, restoration photos, and the heritage certificate. There's even a best in class award from the Old Ellsworth Brewing car show. It all goes to prove this is one exceptional MGA. Call today!!!
