This MG MGA 1600 was originally delivered as new in Europe. In 1990 the car was bought by the current owner as a restoration project. The car had been in the Netherlands for quite some time by then. Before that, the MG came from Belgium, here the car was, as far as can be ascertained, probably also delivered new. Immediately after the purchase, the very extensive and two-year restoration began.
First, the body was repaired and reinforced where necessary, after which it was separated from the chassis. The chassis has been completely restored and is finished on the outside with a black polyurethane paint. The hollow spaces are richly treated with tectyl. The chassis is of course also equipped with new multiplex wooden floor parts, which are of a higher quality than the original ones.
After this, the technique was tackled with the same precision. The rear axle was overhauled and all rotating parts of the front train were replaced. The engine and gearbox have been checked and were in very good condition, as was the gearbox.
After the restoration of the body, it was placed back on the chassis and the MG was finished with a very high-quality interior.
The car is still in very good condition, which attests to a very professional restoration at the time. Unfortunately, the collection of the current owner has grown considerably over the years and the MG is now underused. The car can now go to a new owner who will cherish the car just as the current owner has for more than 30 years. The car is ready, are you?
Very extensive and two-year restoration - Beautiful combination of colors
