Offered for sale is a very rare example of a solid, rust-free, matching numbers, final year MG MGA 1600 MK II Roadster finished in arguably the most sought after color scheme. Set apart by the distinctive recessed grill, horizontal tail-lights and a more powerful 1,622-cc engine, the 1962 MGA MKII is one of the most desirable models MG ever produced. Evidenced by its excellent condition, this example has always been garaged and looked after and always maintained by professionals.
The exterior of the car is in exceptional shape. The factory correct Iris Blue paint is is impeccable, consistent, deep and lustrous. As the pictures show, the car looks gorgeous and wouldn’t need a thing to be a perfect weekend garage queen or an exceptional daily driver. The chrome is excellent, the glass and rubber are great and all of the fits and gaps are correct. The interior presents as nearly showroom new, having been refurbished using all of the correct materials. The soft top is in excellent condition, as is the trunk, free of rust and housing its original spare tire.
Mechanically the car is excellent, the original matching-numbers engine starting easily, pulling strongly and smoothly through all of the gears and braking and driving straight without any rattles or shuddering. The car retains its original Solex carburetors which are tuned and functioning as they should. The undercarriage is in excellent condition showing no rust or corrosion anywhere. We recently just drove this car up the coast for the weekend and it performed wonderfully and garnered many thumbs ups and smiles from other motorists. I’d have no qualms taking this on any long-distance drives, but its owners have always primarily used it as a cherished weekend driver and occasional show contestant. We hope that its next owner will treat the car with the same passionate care.
This is an excellent opportunity to get one of the best, most desirable and rare MGA’s out there.
