This 1962 MGA is currently owned by a renowned race car driver who was victorious at Lemans, Daytona 24 and the Sebring 12 hour.

The car underwent a full body off restoration by a Marque specialist, where all mechanicals and cosmetics were rebuilt or replaced with new ones.

The fully rebuilt engine, fully rebuilt gearbox and the rear end are original.  The engine was rebuilt to very high standards and was upgraded to operate on unleaded fuel.

New wiring, fuel lines, and brake lines were added.

New 60 spoke chrome wire wheels were installed, the leather interior was redone new, all instruments were rebuilt, and custom made white body piping was added.

Since its restoration, the MGA has been driven just enough to completely debug and sort the car. The restorer is available to discuss the car with any serious buyer.
