Following World War 2, many of the American army personal about to leave the the UK were left with the daunting prospect of leaving their cherished cars behind.
You have just discovered one of the cars whose owner could not bear to part with it, and instead, shipped the car back to The States in the late Fifties.
This rare, UK supplied, RHD 1958 MGA was specified in the very desirable shade of Orient Red exterior with black hide.
In 2012/13, the car was fully restored to an incredibly high standard, as is evidenced by its accolade of first place in Central America’s Gathering of the Faithful’s (GOF) concours competition.
GOF Central is the premier yearly MG event in the Midwest, drawing over one hundred of the country’s most beautiful MGs, and to win first place is testament to the standard of the car’s restoration.
Having only logged 3200 easy driving miles since this very complete and comprehensive frame off restoration, the car turns heads and charms everyone who sees her.
The frame off restoration began in August 2012 and was completed in June of 2013, and has been only lightly driven since, largely to be shown in car shows, yet has seen neither rain, or a wet road.
You only have to look at the images to know that this car is particularly special.
During the restoration process, every inch of this car was restored and no detail over-looked, receiving everything possible… new wood floors, all new chrome, carpets, seats, door trims, roof, tonneau… the list just goes on and on!
There is way too much to list but the car comes to the next lucky owner with a barrage of receipts and also a few photos taken during the restoration process proving the car was taken completely down to its smallest parts, before being restored back to its former glory.
This very special 1958 MGA Roadster is now back in the UK and available for its new owner to enjoy… your very own, full scale dinky toy…. simply stunning!
PLEASE NOTE: This car is to be sold by Silverstone Auctions at the NEC Classic Motor Show Sale on 14th November 2015.
PRICE GUIDE: £23,000.00 – £26,000.00
