Classic car auction details on tradeclassics.com Coming soon to Trade Classics and currently on its way to the UK as we write this preview, a truly concours example of a stunning 1959 MGA Roadster. As you know, here at Trade Classics we are very particular on reporting the condition of our vehicles, this is to give you total confidence in your bid. Well in this case, when we say concours, we absolutely and positively mean concours. In fact we don’t think you’ll find a better example in the UK today. This MGA Roadster belongs to a very fastidious owner and friend of us here at Trade Classics; his name is Gary and we’ll let you know more about him and his car pedigree in the final auction description. Gary tells us that the previous owner’s brother began the restoration in 2002 after purchasing the car in Tennessee from the estate of its long term owner. There are over £15k in receipts from 1CAAT Limited of Maryville, Tennessee that document a rebuild of the 1500cc inline-four and 4-speed manual gearbox, new SU carburetors, a repaint, suspension refresh, new wire wheels, brakes, and much more. The car is currently on its way back from Canada and will be on live auction here within the next two months at a very sensible reserve price. We are really excited about this commission, especially considering its faultless condition and expect the final winning bid value to reflect this desirable car. A full review and write-up of the car, along with comprehensive photo gallery and video documentation is on its way on our website. Classic car auction details on tradeclassics.com

The MGA is a sports car produced by MG division of the British Motor Corporation from 1955 to 1962. The MGA replaced the older T-type cars and represented a complete styling break from the older vehicles. The car was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show of 1955. It was replaced by the MGB when production ceased in July 1962. Through that time, BMC sold 101,081 units, the vast majority of which were exported with only 5869 cars sold on the home market, the highest export percentage of any British car. The design dates back to 1952 when MG designer Syd Enever created a streamlined body for George Philips' TD Le Mans car. The problem with this car was the high seating position of the driver because of the limitations of using the TD chassis. A new chassis was designed with the side members further apart and the floor attached to the bottom rather than the top of the frame sections. A prototype was built and shown to the BMC chairman Leonard Lord. Lord turned down the idea of producing the new car as he had just signed a deal with Donald Healey to produce Austin-Healey cars two weeks before. Falling sales of the traditional MG models caused a change of mind and the car, init

This “Deluxe” model has the distinction of being one of the rarest MG’s, and one of the prettiest sports cars ever made. Blessed with delicate, flowing lines, the MGA's endearing form is the reason behind its magnetic appeal. We purchased it from its 2nd owner, who had only owned it from late 2013 until now. The original owner passed away, but had used it for his daily transportation where he lived. The 2nd owner did not drive it very much as he was too big for this car, and thus it was passed along to our care. It displays nice patina, and is in its original color combination of Chariot Red over Black. It would benefit from a cosmetic restoration, but it still shows well today. It comes complete with its: original Drivers Handbooks, BMC Maintenance Covenant, Accessories book, several MG magazines, the original Bill of Sale, a file of receipts, its tools, and a jack. You are welcome to buy the car “as is”, or commission Classic Showcase to restore it for you in any color combination you wish, and with which ever amenities your desire.
This outstanding MGA 1500 Roadster was exported from the Abingdon factory to South Africa in 1957 and is an original RHD example. In 1993 the MGA was subject of a body off rebuild to show standard condition and then placed on exhibition in a Port Elizabeth motor museum for many years. In 2000 the MGA sold to a West Sussex Country Hotel owner who purchased the car whilst on holiday in South Africa. The car spent twelve years with its first UK owner and since 2012 has been owned by one of our regular customers in Scotland. Since rebuild the MGA has only covered 2500 miles and has arrived with us in exceptional condition. We have photographs and documentation confirming the MGA was stripped down to the bare chassis and rebuilt from the ground up. The body was sandblasted, fitted with various new body panels and floor panels replaced. The body was re-aligned, gaps set and prepared for a full re-paint in Orient Red. All chrome work was replaced, the dashboard re-furbished, new lights and windscreen glass fitted and the upholstery beautifully re-trimmed in leather. The MGA was fitted with full weather equipment to include tonneau cover and wheels were re-furbished and tyres replaced. The

(SOLD) This MGA Roadster was a very solid and original car when we purchased the car from its 30+ year owner. It has been sitting for several years in a project condition in a Southern CA garage so we decided it deserved to be taken back to its former showroom glory.

It's not everyday that you find a rare and unmolested MGA Twin Cam that is one of only 2,111 examples ever produced, but Classic Showcase has found such an example and is pleased to offer it here! This sought-after model that has benefited from very limited ownership, and an extensive, highly detailed restoration by it's previous owner. The car was fully stripped, both the engine and body were removed from the chassis in order to undertake a full restoration, which utilized correct parts - many of which were sourced directly from the U.K. Great care was taken by MG restorers to achieve a flawless restoration, and the results speak from themselves. Following its exhaustive restoration, the roadster took part in many MG club events, where it always received attention and numerous awards and accolades. The Twin Cam comes documented with an article that chronicles its restoration (along with photos of the work done), a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, and its original driver’s handbook, operation manual, luggage rack, carpeted trunk, and jack. If you have been looking for an exceptional Twin Cam example, this particular 1959 model is an excellent choice to add to your

Dealer fit: Twin fuel pumps, 12v power socket, battery isolator switch, aluminium spark plug holder, electric radiator fan. EXTERIOR Very rarely is such a genuine home market MGA offered for sale and this Orient Red stunning car is exceptional in both condition and historical provenance. The deep gloss shine reveals the pampered existence with Concours D’Elegance awards noted from as early as 1959! Scrutineers will marvel at the wheel arches in body colour, original number plates and the black folding waterproof hood still with factory side screens adopting the signalling flap along the lower edge. The chrome radiator grille with vertical slats unique to the 1500 model and bumpers have a mirror finish thanks to be rechromed by Derby plating. The flowing aerodynamic lines are absolutely gorgeous and a genuine Vanden Plas aluminium hardtop, of which only 1450 units were made by the BMC subsidiary with the correct aluminium sidescreens, is available by separate negotiation. INTERIOR A beautifully appointed interior has all the qualities of a traditional sports tourer with bucket seats still finished in the factory real Red leather. The previous owner being immensely fastidious would carry premium leather feed in the car at all times to retain the natural look missing in off-the-shelf new items. Karvel carpets with correct binding and oddities like the central dashboard-mounted horn button will please purists but for convenience a hidden 12v power outlet has been fitted, a battery isolator and an auxiliary fusebox to protect unfused circuits. All Jaeger gauges, switches and warning lamps function and this example feels factory correct in every respect. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION Lifting the bonnet will reveal a spotless engine bay and a level of detail unrivalled by most. The original 1500 British Motor Corporation B series Engine has been rebuilt by Bob West and the unleaded cylinder head by Peter Burgess so performs faultlessly. A documented and meticulous periodic servicing regime will assure perfection seeking buyers. A maximum speed of 95mph is quoted by the 68bhp power unit. A recognised 5-speed conversion has been carried out by Hi-Gear Engineering to allow comfortable cruising. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Correct factory standard steel disc-type wheels are pristine and shod in matching radial Firestone 165 R15 tyres with ample tread including the spare. The Lockhead fully compensated drum brakes to all four wheels have been completely overhauled including new copper and nickel pipes and perform faultlessly. HISTORY FILE Truly phenomenal and second to none. One of only 1,859 Home Market UK 1500 Roadsters produced this example has had a total of just five owners in 59 years and covered 77,229 miles. First registered on the 23rd April 1957 to Mr Francis Ware who sold the vehicle after one year to Kenneth George Roe, custodian for the next 23 years. As a well know figure in MG circles and having previously owned a TA and a TF he just had to have the new aerodynamic MGA and competed in various sprints and hill climbs. Although it was not primarily used as a concours car Mr Roe entered it various events all documented in the history file and noteworthy mentions are a second in class in the BARC Eastbourne Motor Rally Concours in 1959, ’Best Modern MG’ awards at the Brenwood Concours in the 1960’s and a pile of ‘First in Class’ awards at M.G.C.C Silverstone in the late 1960’s. There are a number of photos of the car in the late 50’s and early 60’s, one with the last ever Twin-Cam built and owned by Mike Ellman-Brown, a good friend of Mr Roe at the time. Letters between owners make fascinating reading and the current custodian of 18 years, Mr Parmenter, has chronically and fastidiously noted all works carried out in recognition of the unique provenance this vehicle processes and written helpful notes for the new owner. Also featured in the book by F.Wilson McComb in the History of the MG and Malcolm Green, the well-known MG historian and motoring journalist wrote an article about the car in the December 1999 MG Enthusiast magazine, all included. The car comes with a full set of manuals including the first edition operation manual and original hardback workshop manual in perfect condition. A very rare opportunity and special car.
