Description

Beautiful MGA restoration with Sebring front and rear styling. The 2 year frame off restoration was completed in September of 2015 The MGA sports a great performing MGB 1800 3 main engine with a 3 syncro 4 speed transmission and 391 differential gear for highway cruising. The goal of the restoration was to blend racing and nostalgic themes, while adding or improving safety, serviceability and drive-ability features. In keeping with the Sebring theme the radio is deleted; however the antenna is installed for future radio installation if desired. I like to describe this car as a new 1957 MGA roadster. It gets a lot of looks and comments. Every part was inspected and replaced or refurbished to new or better specifications where warrantied. The motor was rebuilt by previous owner. It was tested for leak down and compression. It maintains 65 lbs or greater oil pressure while cruising at 3000 rpm. The Frame was media blasted and coated with POR15. All other body parts where media blasted and under-coated with raptor tint-able urethane where required. Paint is a British racing green with a 9 out of 10 score. Some minor rock chips from driving. Safety upgrades include the following. Upgraded safety restraints from lap belt to 3 point retractable. Upgraded braking system includes a Single Line Brake Servo Booster for improve pedal feel and stopping power. Upgraded steel brake lines to Copper Nickel Brake lines. These will never rust. Upgraded Minilite Style Wheel - Knockoff - Anthracite - 15" x 5.5". Will not flex under load like wire wheels. Drive-ability and serviceability features include Upgraded ignition system to Protronix electronic ignition module and sport coil Upgraded wiring and ATO fuse panels. Eliminates the trouble prone Lucas 2 fuse panel. Upgraded charging system. Gm 63 amp alternator replaces old style generator and regulator box. Upgraded ground system from positive to negative ground. Upgraded starter system includes modern nippon denso 5840115 starter and ignition switch. Upgraded PCV system. Additional items include. New USB charger for cell phones and other electronics. Voltmeter module. Custom top with zippered rear window from England. Set of painted wire wheels New fender welting from England -Made in Germany to correct factory specs. 4500 miles on restoration.
