Description for MG MGA 1957

Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this very nice older restored MGA 1500 Roadster with it's simple early taillight arrangement and correct engine fitted. We recently purchased this car from Utah where it appears to have had a body-off-the-chassis restoration performed some time ago. It has been in short term storage since the restoration, but still runs and drives well.The bodywork on this car is very honest and straight, accident-free, looks completely rustfree and solid, with good gapping all the way around. Panel fit is very nice. Paintwork is decent modest job. Upon close inspection, there are some inconsistencies in the finish with some variable orange peel that could benefit from a good deep sanding and polishing. This could really improve the gloss and overall finish on the car. Chromework is a mixture of some new items and good original pieces. The windshield glass is in great shape and was replaced during the past restoration.The car's interior is very nice overall with comfortable black leather seats and matching armrest, restored black panel kit, newer black carpet set, attractive custom wood dashboard with matching shift knob, correct hanging sidecurtain stowage bag (behind seats), original steering wheel. The restored top frame is currently fitted in place and is awaiting a new soft top and sidecurtain set.Mechanically, the car is in fine fettle. The engine compartment is beautifully detailed and whistle clean. The correct 1500cc starts instantly on the starter pull and is well tuned. I'm sure it has been rebuilt as it exhibits perfect oil pressure, no smoke or noises, and is a smooth and quiet revving engine. An electric cooling fan is fitted as an extra precaution. We are currently fitting a new water pump and will be posting a video soon of the car running and driving happily around town, as it's a very good driver. The correctly painted 48-spoke wire wheel set looks nice fitted with newer radial tires.The car's underside is nicely detailed and clean and shows that the chassis was completely rebuilt and the body removed from the frame.Overall, a very nice and honest 1500 Roadster in striking and delightful period colors, fitted with the desirable wire wheel option. This older full restoration presents and drives well, and is quite above other average cars offered in this price range.
