This smart-looking MGA Roadster, attractively finished in black with contrasting red hood, was registered in September 1957. Only four registered keepers are recorded on the V5C, with the previous keeper having had it for 15 years. The odometer shows 27,170 miles and the last MoT expired in September 2013, after being tested the previous year at 20,982 miles. Recent work includes a seat and dashboard retrim, new carpets and doorcards, plus a new battery. The vendor describes the car as running and driving; it has obviously been restored at some point too, but the date of this is unknown. Documentation accompanying the MGA includes the past and previous V5Cs, a small selection of 21st century invoices (including what looks like a £2100 bill for recommissioning work in July 2021 at 26,582 miles), a single MoT certificate from 2012, the owner's handbook and a BMC workshop manual.
