This 1957 MG MGA is the quintessential fun British roadster that comes in a great color combo and has thousands $$$$$ in recent receipts for quality work. It's the kind of drop-top that's ideal when looking for one classic that you can collect, drive, and proudly park on a show field.
<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. 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 waterfall grille. Plus, wire wheels with knock-off hubs were an option from the factory, and it just seems like a must-have to complete the iconic appearance. The Glacier Blue paint was given a nice respray, and since this was done later in life, there's the kind of aging that will make people suspect it's original. So it's bright and glossy while still being quite vintage, and that impresses in the right classic car crowds.
<br><br> The British have always excelled at color combinations, and this interior proves it. The tan is a tasteful but distinct contrast to the exterior blue and dash. This has the best of classic motoring with a wood-rimmed steering wheel (MotoLita), 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 every sunny day. And if you do ever get caught in the rain, the folding roof will save you from most of the downfall. It also comes with a black canvas cockpit cover.
<br><br> The engine bay has a show-ready style that comes from a proper investment. The bold maroon block looks great against the exterior blue, and everyone loves the detailed style of the twin SU carbs. The 1500cc B-series motor is a robust powerplant, and we know it remains vigorous because of the receipt file. We have documentation showing $23k spent within the last few months on the engine, suspension, wiring, and more making sure this is quite a solid driver. And you see it everywhere from the rebuilt carburetors to the clean aluminum radiator. There are even new 2022 Michelin tires. So it makes for a car you can confidently enjoy. And the four-speed manual gearbox combines with the legendary nimble steering to really let you feel why these are legendary back road roadsters.
<br><br> The sale comes complete with the receipts and the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate. It all proves this is a great classic and a great driver's car. So it's time to experience your favorite road with a true vintage MGA. Call today!!!
