This late, left-hand drive MGA 1500 roadster was exported new to the USA. It is understood that the first owner kept the car until 1965 and that the second owner kept it until 2011 when the current vendor imported it into the UK. Prior to importation the car had been in dry storage since 1975, as verified by the US tax disc that expired that year. We are advised that the car is as imported (dockside photograph on file) except for re-commissioning to return it to the road. New parts fitted in the process include the battery cradles and 6-volt batteries; SU fuel pump and hoses; brake hoses; wheel cylinders; clutch slave cylinder; cooling/heating hoses; exhaust system; rear drop arm links; rear axle straps; steering gaiters; carpet set; wooden main floors; and tyres/tubes (x5). In addition, the carburettors were overhauled; the brake master cylinder reconditioned; the wheels shot blasted and powder coated; the front suspension re-bushed and a full service carried out (new plugs, points, condenser, oils, filters, etc). The body is said to be very good, with original gaps but it requires refurbishment and repainting. The chrome trim is said to be sound and the seats are complete but need reupholstering. (Coupé cushions are fitted but have the same frames as those of the roadster). All instruments are present and in working order. There is a serviceable hood and frame fitted and a pair of aluminium side screens suitable for refurbishment, while the original side screen bag is present for repair or as a pattern. The car retains its original centre armrest, starting handle and wheel brace. On the mechanical side the engine is said to run well with good oil pressure and no drips while the gearbox is described as tight and quiet, as is the differential. The brakes are strong and the car is reported to drive very well. Indeed, we are advised that it could be a daily driver until such time as the new owner decides to improve it, a task that should be well within the scope of the home-based 'DIY' enthusiast. Offered with Heritage Certificate, MoT/tax to May 2013 and Swansea V5C document, '775 YUJ' represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a good MGA capable of transformation to 'A1' condition with relatively little expense.
