This vehicle underwent a ground-up, fully documented restoration using mostly original parts, including panels (costing thousands with all receipts available). These painstaking efforts were rewarded with a win at a high-profile 'Benson & Hedges' Concours event.
The car is a 1958 MGA Twin Cam Roadster, chassis YD3/996, in attractive Ash Green paintwork with a Biscuit interior and a Black soft-top. Matching numbers example (although Abingdon did not bother to keep track of any number other than the VIN/chassis!), it was originally delivered new to the US, as were the majority of Twin Cams.
Production totalled just 2,111 examples, with 1,801 cars being in the more desirable and quintessentially British ‘wind-in-your-hair’ Roadster configuration. Understandably, today the Twin Cam is one of the most sought-after of post-war MG sports cars.
introduced in 1958, the new 1,588cc engine did not disappoint, producing an impressive 108bhp at 6,700 rpm. Considerably faster than the standard MGA, and with a pleasing ‘rasp’ to the engine note, the Twin Cam could comfortably exceed 110mph, and to cope with the increased performance Dunlop 103/4” disc brakes were fitted all round, and Dunlop centre-lock wheels adopted.
An MGA Twin Cam is highly prized today, especially the Roadster, and one in this sort of condition with such a cherished ownership history, even more so. viewing is highly recommended. more photos on idealcars.co.uk
