MOT Expiry:

Restored in 2005 and sold four years later by MGA specialist Bob West this South African-market car benefits from being originally built in right-hand drive form and has the bonus of being matching numbers. The very good bodywork is a testament to the restoration and today it offers a gently settled-in air rather than being in too-glossy concours order. Brightwork and wire wheels are in good condition and a good black soft top protects occupants from the elements. Our vendor reports the interior (seats and trim) in good order and the dashboard, door cars and carpets as very good. For those keen on driving their classics, would-be purchasers should note the vendor describes this 'A' as driving very well, with no faults while the running gear is in very good order. A recent service has been carried out. Some history accompanies this car.
