MG MGA 1500 Roadster 1958 – SPRZEDANE

Dostępny od 1955 roku model MGA w pełni wprowadził MG w powojenną erę. Sercem MGA był czterocylindrowy, rzędowy silnik o pojemności 1489 cm³, zasilany dwoma gaźnikami SU i współpracujący z czterobiegową manualną skrzynią. Prawie 70 KM do napędzania nieco ponad 900 kg zapewnia świetne wrażenia z jazdy. MG MGA okazał się hitem zarówno w Anglii, jak i za granicą, sprzedając się w liczbie 13000 egzemplarzy już w pierwszym roku produkcji. Egzemplarz wystawiony na aukcji wyprodukowany na rok modelowy 1958, przeznaczony był na rynek amerykański. Z kierownicą po lewej stronie i oprzyrządowaniem w milach nie posiada dokładnej historii. Pierwszy dostępny title to zakup auta w Illinois w sierpniu 1990 roku. W 2014 roku trafił do Holandii, a następnie sprzedany został obecnemu właścicielowi do Niemiec za pośrednictwem francuskiego dealera w 2015 roku. MG w błękitnym kolorze, z nową tapicerką, doprowadzony do świetnego stanu mechanicznego, sprzedał się podczas aukcji za 22 tysiące euro, czyli prawie 100 tysięcy złotych.

A wonderful driver’s example

Introduced in 1955, the MGA brought MG fully into the post-war era. As a replacement for the MG TF, at its heart was a 1,489 cc inline four-cylinder engine, topped with twin SU carburettors and mated to a four-speed manual transmission. Although its initial output of 68 bhp (which was shortly raised to 72 bhp) seems small by today’s standards, the MGA tipped the scales at just over 900 kg. It proved to be a hit with customers both in England and abroad, with 13,000 examples sold in the first year of production and a total of 101,081 examples built by July of 1962.

This particular MGA was produced for the 1958 model year and destined for the United States, built to LHD specifications with instrumentation in miles. While the majority of its history there is not known, a previous Illinois title on file shows that it was purchased by a Florene Wren of Morris, Illinois in August of 1990. It appears that the car remained in the ownership of her family until early 2014.

It was then imported to the Netherlands later that year and then sold to the current owner via a French dealer in 2015. Subsequently exported to Germany, the MGA has remained in Berlin ever since. Upon purchasing the car, the owner restored the interior upholstery and reports it to be in excellent condition. Afterwards, the car was entrusted to Michael Gross, a Berlin-based British car specialist, to bring it to an excellent mechanical standard to be driven an enjoyed. This work totaled to €4,549.06 and invoices from this work and subsequent regular service work carried out from 2015 to 2019 by him are included in the car’s history file, along with a reproduction MGA owner’s manual.

According to the consignor, the car starts easily and runs well today, thanks to completely rebuilt brakes, a refurbished fuel system, and the replacement of the head gasket of his ownership. An affordable and accessible entry point to classic car ownership, MGAs are fun to drive, relatively easy to maintain. Its easy to see why these cars have a fervent following of enthusiasts who enjoy driving their cars regularly. Considering this example’s regular service work and attractive colours, this MGA will surely not disappoint.
