ONLINE ONLY AUCTION at www.classicpromenade.com. With no expense spared, this seductive black over red 1956 MGA Roadster is certainly one of the best examples of the slight British roadster in existence. Previously owned by a noted Austin Healy restorer Steve Spaulding, this MGA had been meticulously restored by the current owner. The total investment in its ground up restoration of this roadster is over 1,000 hours and $140,000. So you know the quality that was performed by Doctor Jag Technologies in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The restoration is fully documented with extensive accounting detail. This MGA is part of a collection that includes over 30 classic and vintage British sports cars.
The livery is a deep and incredibly well polished black, giving the car a more sinister look. The paints smooth surface accentuates all of the curves that make the MGA a classic design. The black vinyl convertible top is new with soft and clear plastic windows. With a set of Minilite style wheels, racing mesh style grill, and mesh headlight covers, the aggressive personality of this car starts to take shape.
The beautiful red leather interior is stunning and is complimented by black wool carpets that makes this car really look and feel special. The seats are without flaw and you will notice red highlights tastefully added throughout. The painted black dash houses all the knobs and pulls that these cars are known for, and all work as expected. Featured in the instruments are a Jaeger speedometer and tachometer and Smiths temperature and fuel gauges. An MG four spoke steering wheel pulls everything together.
As with any British roadster, the fun begins when you first hear that motor hum. Under the hood you will see a neat and mostly clean compartment, with the expected inline four-cylinder engine, painted in a deeper red, with the period correct plate on the cover. The four-speed gearbox offers plenty of driver engagement during spirited driving.
An independent inspection was conducted, and the report is available for your review. It confirms the incredible condition of this roadster.
