Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this well preserved MGA 1600 Roadster with front disc brakes, in a rare and desirable factory color scheme, along with the desirable and attractive wire wheel option. This car was just purchased from the state of Georgia where the previous owner enjoyed the car in it’s current condition and kept it mechanically maintained very well. As a result, the car runs and drives well and feels quite good out on the open road.
The body on this car presents honestly with great shutlines and nice panel fit. Paintwork appears to be a single older lacquer repaint from the 70’s or 80’s, and looks good from 10-15 feet. Upon close inspection it’s showing it’s old age with some scrapes, patch repairs, thinning, touch-ups, chips, small dings, etc. However, it looks hugely honest and attractive, very genuine, and definitely gives meaning to the term “survivor”. Chromework is all original and is good to average, with some surface rust showing to the front grille and rear bumper. These are the thick factory original chrome items and could easily be nicely replated. The windshield glass is good and appears to be the original Triplex item.
The car’s interior is older and has been retrimmed at one point. It looks quite nice overall in correct bright red with very decent comfortable seats, black loop carpet, a wonderfully original dashboard facia with factory radio blanking plate. The fitted black soft top is newer, along with the factory original gray tonneau cover and matching sidecurtain set.
Mechanically the car is excellent as only a well-kept low mileage original can be.  The correct 1600 engine starts easily on the key with no noises, idles quietly, revs very well with no smoke and great oil pressure, and sings happily along the road with great exhaust sounds, especially on cam at 3500 rpm. The car feels very nice out on the road with reassuring brakes, clutch, steering, suspension, gearbox – all feeling very good. The front shocks feel weakish, but we are checking the fluid level. The tires fitted are newer radials and feel nicely balanced. PLEASE VIEW VIDEO.
Overall, a very well-preserved, largely unrestored MGA Roadster, having never been apart. It’s a lovely original and genuine specimen in great colors and options, and one would be pressed to find another one like it.
