The Appeal

The enduring appeal of the MGA goes well beyond its aerodynamic styling and classic sports car attributes, although these are excellent reasons to buy. Securing the keys also gives you access to a remarkable ownership scene full of enthusiast clubs, owners and suppliers. 
This restored factory MGA 1500 builds on the factory qualities with a beautiful burgundy metallic finish. Inside there is a retrimmed interior and under the bonnet a rebuilt 1588cc engine. It has been very sparingly used since the work was recently completed. 
The car originated in the USA before arriving in Cyprus in 2016 where it was converted to RHD. It came to the UK in Spring 2022. This much-travelled car is now ready for warm weather and fun drives.
