The Bramah Collection
1959 MG A 1600 Roadster
Chassis no. GHNL 95440
*Solid shell
*Doors opening/closing well
*Ideal basis for competition car


Continuing a trend set by its TD and TF predecessors, the MGA was appreciably more sophisticated design-wise and its looks were clearly aimed at the American market. For the buyer wanting to put their stamp on an 'A' MPH's left-hand drive non-runner demands work but makes an ideal blank canvas, offering the potential for a straightforward restoration or turning into a circuit racer or rally car. Having a good solid shell, as shown by the doors opening and closing well, it has some surface rust and note it is missing seats.
