This 1959 MGA Roadster is a sold project that underwent a full nut-and-bolt restoration.
The vehicle was stripped down to bare metal, with the chassis blasted, painted in gloss black and fully rebuilt with all new braking, suspension and steering components. These included upgraded Spax telescopic rear shock absorbers and a front brake disc conversion. The bodywork was taken back to bare metal, all gaps dry fitted, treated with Jenolite (rust eater), primed and fully resprayed in 2 pack black.
The painted body was then been fitted to the chassis with a new fitting kit and panels re-fitted with new hinges and fitting kits. The rebuilt engine was fitted on new mounts, along with the new 5 speed type 9 gearbox. Various ancillaries were fitted in the engine bay, including an uprated aluminium radiator, brake servo, complete heater unit etc. The body had all new brightwork fitted, including new lights, bumpers, grille, rechromed windscreen frame etc.
The interior consisted of complimenting dark red leather seats with wool carpets. Mohair weather gear was fitted, as well as 5.5J 72 spoke chrome wire wheels. It was finished off with various other modern day upgrades, such as electronic ignition, electric Revotec fan, as well as a 12V charging point to improve the drive and usability of the car.
