An older body-off re-build means this 1957 MGA presents in good order and its black bodywork has lasted well, although the paint could benefit from some rectification. Panel alignment is good, as is the brightwork and the black soft top. The interior is in good order, the dashboard and instruments in reasonable fettle, as are the door cards and the seat facings. It comes with a Heritage certificate and photographs of the re-build.
Older restoration means pleasingly mellowed looks. Comes with photographs documenting the re-build.
