1958 MGA Coup 2,000cc For Sale by Auction

This lot will be auctioned via Classic Car Auctions, The Summer Sale 2023 on Saturday the 17th of June, Warwickshire Event Centre, CV31 1XN.
This charismatic 1958 MGA Coupé has been enjoyed by three previous owners, the most recent of which owned 368 DLG for 50 years
In the early 1980s it was decided to enter the car in the 1984 Peking to Paris Rally and preparations began well in advance
That particular rally is a car breaker so Andy Dawson of Dawson Auto Developments (DAD) was enlisted to help the owner build a car that was strong enough
A completely bespoke chassis was designed and built, suitably strengthened and construction continued with a complete roll cage, upright suspension, inner fibreglass sections and outer wings prior to the rest of the bodywork being reinstated
It was fitted with a 2-litre MGB engine built by Entune of Radcliffe with Lotus pistons and a race cam mated to a close-cut MGB gearbox. More recently it's been fitted with Weber 45DCOE and continues to run well with great oil pressure
In the event, 386 DLG never made it to the rally but was campaigned for many years by its owner in night rallies and at Oulton Park, Silverstone, Prescott Hill Climb and numerous sprints until laid up in 2000
The car is supplied with 50 years of history including, importantly, drawings and photographs of Andy Dawson's unique chassis design and clever fabrications
Many, many thousands have been invested in this remarkable little MG and more information on the build and specification is available to interested parties
at auction viewings
368 DLG is very well known and fondly remembered by the racing and rally community, and deserves an owner who appreciates it for what it is
