truly excellent throughout, looks and drives as expected of a 3000 mile car & just serviced. We have just added some E5 fuel and taken for a 25 mile ride in the dry and I must say the car drives and handles superb and is rather nippy. 65-70 mph no problem at all. A constant excellent oil pressure and temp was maintained .
The painted wire wheels are the more desirable 48 spoke painted and are shod with quality matching radials that have only covered 3000 miles.
This MGA ticks about every single box , its a late MK1 so best styling along with the 1600 engine which carried over into the mk2. Best colour combo of chariot red with black interior with Red piping, A1 condition with detailed engine and engine bay and detailed underneath. Subtle and very sensible upgrades making the car so easy to use and drive . Show standard, As far as you would want to go whilst still being able to drive it as opposed to loading on a trailer everywhere.
