Overall this is a very well restored car that underwent a powder coat, frame off restoration between 2004 and 2010. The car still presents nicely, but it should now be considered as an older restoration that was completed some 12 years ago. The Old English White paint (the cars original colour) is perhaps, ever so slightly, now showing signs of age, but this is also, perhaps, just our personal critical eye. The pvc roof is like new, but does, sadly, have a 1cm – now professional repaired – tear close to the window frame passenger side, but would also be hard to spot. The side windows are both brand new and the accessory Perspex quarter-lights are in nice addition and common place on most MGA Roadsters, these days. All the bright-work: bumpers, badges and neat wing mirrors have been suitably restored or replaced. With some tell-tale American signs (almost 95% of all MGA’s ever produced were shipped to the US), such as the white glass front indicators confirming the cars origins, it has to be said, that this is one of the better restored examples from America that we’ve come across at Cathedral Classics.
