1959 MGA 1500 Roadster Only 42. 00 Actual Miles Fresh out of Long Term Storage 100% Complete and VERY Solid Engine Runs and Transmission Has All Speeds Rare Opportunity. LOW RESERVE Greetings to All!! imotors is quite pleased to offer this fresh garage found 1959 MGA Roadster. We stumbled across this buried treasure just a few miles from the 1961 Rolls Royce that we have listed on another auction this week. This MGA has been with the same owner since at least January of 1988 when the title that we have was issued. At that time. it had 42. 28 miles. Today. the mileage is 42. 89. Apparently. it hasn't seen much use in the last 27 years. only being driven a scant 561 miles!!!! We have a few car show placards that tells it DID see some limited use. We also have a car show dash plaque from October 1994. so it was at least on the road back then! There are a bunch of old parts in the trunk. such as brake shoes. and wheel cylinders. along with a clutch disc. My Guess is that it was awakened from slumber at some time. and then very shortly thereafter. went right back to sleep. We were able to get the engine running. and it runs fairly well. Certainly should have a tune up and oil change etc. Looking underneath. we notice fresh exhaust. a new right front shock. and rear wheel cylinders. The right rear has been leaking. as the backing plate is wet. We bled the brakes. and the clutch. Both seem to be operating. as we now have somewhat of a brake pedal. and the clutch arm is moving. However. we still have no clutch! I cannot start it in neutral. and shift into any speed. but I CAN start it in gear with the back wheels up. and we have power to the wheels. My Guess is that the clutch disc is stuck from sitting. When I raised the rear wheels. and ran it through the gears. All seem OK. including reverse. Hence. It is NOT drivable!!! All gauges and lights seem to function. as does the radio and heater fan. Cosmetically. what you see is what you get. It looks like the rockers have been patched at sometime. It is VERY solid underneath. with no noted rot or rust through. The frame is perfectly solid. as are the wooden floors. Note the photos below of the trunk floor. Amazingly solid!!! We did zero cleanup. so it is exactly as found. I have underneath pictures for the serious buyer!!As with all classic and collectable cars. this MGA is being sold without warranty. We have a clean Pa. titel that reads actual miles. Take a look at the 45 photographs below and see the actual as found condition of this One of A Kind MGA Roadster. By bidding you agree to all terms set forth below. Many Thanks for Your Interest!Good Luck with Your Bidding!! Our MGA has NOT been cleaned!!! Exactly as found!! Note the absence of rust through Looks like the rockers have been repaired at some time The soft top was down at time of purchase. and the full tonneau was installed. which kept the interior relatively clean! The chrome appears to be in good condition. although. we don't know how well it will polish up? Note the VERY early Pa Antique Tag!! I have tag number "JR77' that I put on a Caddy in 1991. This one was issued many years before. probably in 1988! In this Photo you can see the very unique luggage rack! Pretty cool!. The soft top has probably been stored in the down position for many many years. The rockers appear to have been repaired at some time. Amazing that the side curtains have survived all of these years! . Just the way we found it!!! Should clean up nicely! Pretty complete and solid for an almost 60 year old car!! This is behind the seats. the battery lives under this panel! Banjo steering wheel! I just love the added on arm rests!! They appear to be 1960's GM! Solid here too! I would guess that the interior should clean up quite nicely! The awesome AM radio is in working condition!! Clean Pa. title says actual miles!! I would guess that I was the first person to look in here in many many years. !! All tire tools and the fifth wire wheel are included! The trunk floor is all original and rust free! This must have been used at some time in our MGA's colorful past. Modified original intake manifold? Original Carbs are included! Our MGA now sports a Pierce intake with a Weber carb!
