1960 MG A Roadster

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: 934 XVN Chassis No: GHNL88411 MOT: Exempt Powered by a MGB 1800 engine and gearbox Finished in British Racing Green with a Cream interior Subject to an extensive restoration in 2021 Offered with history file Introduced in Autumn 1955, the MGA Roadster married a proven chassis design complete with independent front suspension and rack and pinion steering to a new B-series four-cylinder, pushrod-ohv engine. Borrowing cues from the Abingdon factory's successful EX182 prototype racers (5th- and 6th-in-class at that year's Le Mans) its wonderfully elegant styling ensured strong sales on both sides of the Atlantic. Continually updated, the MGA range was joined by Coupe and 'Twin Cam' variants in 1956 and 1958 respectively. Prompted by the latter's performance advantage, the standard pushrod model received a capacity increase to 1588cc and front disc brakes in May 1959. The resultant '1600' MKI was capable of almost 100mph. ‘934 XVN’ began life as a 1960 export model for a left-hand drive market. Repatriated and subsequently converted to right-hand drive upon arrival in the UK, '934 XVN’ was restored in March 2021. We believe the MGB 1800cc engine, gearbox and overdrive were mated to the car at this stage. With an interior trimmed in Cream leather with Black piping, ‘XVN’ is finished in the traditional shade of British Racing Green. Finishing off the iconic appearance of a British sportscar is a wood rim steering wheel with matching gear knob, chrome wire wheels, bumpers and a chrome rear luggage rack plus side screens, indeed, every inch of this MGA appears to have been afforded a refresh. Accompanying the little Roadster are a quantity of related books and a history file of paperwork. The MG is offered with a current V5C document.
