1958 MG MGA

Up for your perusal is a 1958 right hand drive MGA. I really dont have the full history of how or why it came to be in the US. It was the subject of a frame off resto a few years back, including engine/transmission rebuild. I have no reason to doubt that as it runs extremely well. It is is the original 1500 engine, in fact it appears to be completely original.I this bought several months, spur of the moment thing. I ended up taking the ancillaries off the engine and repainting the block/head/Starter/generator/rocker cover (new gasket) and inlet manifold the correct MG red. After painting I replaced the clutch cylinder, water pump, heater valve, fan belt and spark plugs. The radiator I had boiled out and painted and added a fan shroud and electric fan - after running it now, it didn't really need the fan, just a precaution. I also had the exhaust manifold ceramic coated. While away, I completely rebuilt the carbs (with superdry jet bearing kit), had them polished and added K and N filters, and fitted new choke cable. I have just completely rebuilt the front suspension: New brake cylinders, new shock absorbers and poly bushes all round. I also cleaned and repainted all the parts while off. The rear brake cylinders are fine - of course complete brake fluid bleed. The paintwork is bright, it has obviously been garage stored since the resto. Two areas have slight 'cracks' - dime size. I was going to get that addressed, but will leave to the next owner to decide. Everything works. Starts on the first turn, and now stops...The interior is in great shape as you can see, The top is in great shape, as is the tonneau cover. The side curtains are not in great shape. I have never had them on - fair weather driver they will need complete re-build or replace ($500)The wire wheels are in excellent condition, tires have plenty of tread. Tool bag and crank starting handle in the trunkIf anyone from the UK is reading this I will consider shipping - I have a brother in the South East who could co-ordinateTo say this gets attention here in Florida is an understatement....I can send more photos by request
