Description for MG MGA 1959

This car is said to have been used in the filming of Animal House in Eugene Oregon in 1975. I see it in a few scenes. The previous owner told me this was the car in the film. I drove this car to work a few times in 1989 and 1990, but it has been off the road in my garage since then. I am not going to do a restoration and need the space for other projects, so it is time to pass it to someone with the passion to make it good for the road again.

The seals don't hold oil in the front suspension units. The right side body mount for the convertible top bows is damaged and will need a weld repair. The top is well oxidized and needs replacement. I used the tonneau cover when the car was outside the garage. The tires are very old and need to be replaced. The original battery holders are corroded, but I have installed a 12 Volt AGM battery that does a great job of cranking. The brakes and clutch will need a new master cylinder. The master cylinder is around a 100 bucks.

The data plate indicates the original color was Old English White, but there are also indications of a previous blue color. The car is titled in Oregon in my name. I can assist in loading the car to a transport service at my home in Vancouver WA.
