1958 MG MGA 1800 MGB 3-MAIN ENGINE Description:

Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this very nice MGA that was just purchased from it's long term owners in Palo Alto, California. This believed California car from new was cosmetically restored approximately 15 years ago to a very good level. About 4-5 years ago, it's tired 1500cc engine was replaced with a rebuilt 1800cc MGB 3-main engine that transforms the car's performance into an exciting road car. Maintenance and care was the job of a fastidious local British car shop that has kept this car in tip-top mechanical condition.The body on this car is very good and presents itself very honestly without any rust or accidents. The underside shows nicely with zero issues and all solid original sheetmetal. There's the typical minor kick out on the back of the doors, but panel fit is fairly good all the way around. Paintwork is older with some small blemishes showing on the lower boot lid, and some minor chipping on the front of the hood and door edges. Nevertheless, it's still very glossy and highly attractive for a nice driver level car. Chrome work and rubber is very good, being a mixture of new and original items, along with a nice original Triplex windshield.Interior trim was also renewed at the time of the restoration including panel kit, carpets, seat covers, sidescreen bag, tonneau cover, sidecurtain set. The dashboard is beautiful with the correctly painted facia panel and nice clean working instruments. The car features a fully carpeted trunk including a rare tool kit, jack and handle, and other original accessories. The softtop is in very good shape with only a small tear.Mechanically, the car shines. The rebuilt, upgraded, powerful 1800 engine is well tuned and pulls strong with great oil pressure, no smoke or noises, runs cool, and barks with a fantastic exhaust note when it comes on cam. The gearbox shifts well, and the car is assisted with good brakes and suspension/steering. the engine bay is well detailed, clean, and way above the average of other MGA's on offer. A very well taken care of car, and it shows.Overall, an excellent California MGA Roadster in very good all around condition, with near faultless mechanicals ! This car should be kept and enjoyed as is, with it's nicely mellowed restoration. It's a very reliable turn-key car, the perfect driver.
