Body Style: Convertible
The Classic Car Gallery is proud to offer this 1961 MGA 1600 Roadster. This beautiful red convertible was completely restored in 1996/1997. Very few miles were put on the restoration, and the car has been in storage for the last 4 years. We have comprehensive books, records and photographs of the restoration. The original 4 cylinder engine was rebuilt, as was the 4 speed transmission and clutch. A new exhaust system, new wiring harness, new signal lenses, chrome and new rubber trim was also installed. New floor boards constructed from marine plywood and beautifully finished were bolted in. A factory deluxe steering wheel was sourced and installed. A new heater box was also installed. New brakes, including rotors and calipers were installed in front, as well as new drums and linings in the rear. The body of the car was media blasted during the restoration, and very little filler was used. The car was painted, using PPG Concept 200 base coat clear coat, in 1984 Ferrari Red. The frame was painted using a rust inhibitor. The paint is excellent. The car was assembled on all new body mount, with all new rubber trim. New leather seat covers, using high quality top grain cowhides in the original period correct patterns and tan color, were installed, as well as new carpets. The dashboard was recovered in the same material, and all switches and gauges work as they should. Halogen headlights were installed in 2003. A brand new windshield, new in the box side curtains, and a new top, finished off the restoration. This is a superb car both cosmetically and mechanically. No issues, no stories, ready to share the wonderful classic roadster experience with its new owner.
