This 1960 MGA Roadster 1600cc was originally exported to America, where it spent its life in Arizona. It was imported back and had a full nut-and-bolt restoration for a customer.
The vehicle was stripped down and the body removed from the chassis. The chassis was sand blasted, etch primed and painted in chassis satin black. All new suspension, braking and steering components have been built up, including upgrades such as rear Spaxx shock absorbers and polybushes. Once complete we fitted the new spoke wire wheels and tyres so the chassis was rolling, stopping and steering. The bodyshell was taken back to bare metal and coated in Jenolite (acid rust eater). Due to their excellent original condition, the 4 wings have been sand blasted and coated in etch primer. The whole vehicle was then primed and painted in Old English White. Once polished the car was fitted on to the chassis.
Various new parts were then fitted, including all new chrome work, electrical/water/fuel/heating systems, with various upgrades along the way such as an 1800cc engine, a 5 speed gearbox, plus optional extras to help improve reliability such as electronic ignition, aluminium radiator and electric revotec fan.
After carrying out substantial test driving locally, we delivered the vehicle to the customer in Oxfordshire.
