1956 MGA ROADSTER - RHD & Matching No's. RESTORED For Sale
The car is an original RHD with matching numbers car built in the UK in January 1956 - production started in September 1955 at the rate of 300 cars per month. The car is dated by the South African Vintage & Veteran Association and has Badge No. 2896
The first chassis number was 10101, this car is Chassis No. HD-23 11565 making it number 1,464 to come off the production line and therefore built in January 1956. The engine, number is BP15GB-1623, is the original engine and is 1500cc. The colour combination is as it was when it left the factory.
The car was rebuilt by an MG CAR CLUB Committee Member about 7 years ago and restoration was from the chassis up and included chassis, brakes, suspension, engine rebuild, gearbox check and new seals, rewired with new loom, new chrome, complete new interior, detailed and correct engine bay, new hood & side-screens. At the same time the car received a disc brake conversion, 3.9 differential, 72-spoke wire wheels and oil cooler. Effectively the ground upwards restoration was comprehensive with detailed attention to the body and panel shut-lines.
As the car stands now, her meticulous restoration is slightly spoiled as it needs some attention to the body paint due to micro-blistering of the surface in some areas; the direct result of the primer that was used. Having stated this it should also be clearly understood there is absolutely “zero” rust to the body panels or structure. I will have this flaw corrected before shipping at a professional and latest paint technology fitted Body & Spray Shop which I’ve used for restoration work previously; or it can be rectified after arrival in the UK whenever it suits the buyer - in which case the asking price will be adjusted by £4,000 accordingly.
The present owner has owned the car for four years. The only reason for selling the car is due his wife having had hip-replacements which prevents them enjoying the car together during their retirement, as she has difficulty getting in and out of the car.
The car is ready to be enjoyed and has no other issues to report. The export clearance and shipping process will take 5-weeks for the car to arrive in the UK. The advertised price includes all costs to Clear and the HMRC Import Duty. The further requirement of the MoT and DVLA will also be duly completed for the new owner – meaning all you need to do is insure the car and drive her away to your home from Bury St Edmunds in England.
If you have any specific questions please just ask – call me anytime on UK number 07379-415186 or International +44-7379-415186. Thank you, Peter Jackson
