OUR CLIENT
As you know, here at Trade Classics we are very particular on reporting the condition of our vehicles, this is to give you, the buyer, total confidence in your bid. Well in this case, when we say concours, we absolutely and positively mean concours. In fact we dont think youll find a better example in the UK today.

This MGA Roadster belongs to a new friend of us here at Trade Classics; his name is Eamonn and he bought this little MGA from us last year.

Eamonn has used and enjoyed the car for over a year and now wants us to help find a new home as he wants to use the proceeds to fund a project.



THE EXTERIOR

The paint on this car is beautiful and finished in Dove Grey. The restoration is exceptional as the entire car has been painted and there is no trace of the original colour that was Old English White.

Wheels & Tyres
16in wire wheels are fitted, including the spare, and wrapped in period correct Dunlop SP20 crossply tyres. There are no signs of uneven wear.

Bodywork
All panels are free from dents and the shut-lines across the entire car look visibly correct and both doors close evenly.

Paint
The paint is in excellent visible condition. The only slight imperfections we found were as follows: a slight hairline crack in the paint on the passenger side lower part of the rear wing and slightly uneven paint on the inside lip on the lower part of the drivers door. Please see the images and videos to see the excellent condition of the bodywork.

Glass and Trim
Glass and trim are all in good order. The plastic side windows have slight discoloration as to be expected with their age. A new hood has also been fitted and is in excellent condition.



THE INTERIOR

The attention to detail achieved in this restoration is exceptional meaning the interior is a beautiful place to be.

Seats and Carpets
All in excellent condition and looking factory fresh.

Dashboard
All gauges are in excellent working condition.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
Both are in excellent condition. The steering wheel is original and its assumed the gear knob has been replaced during the restoration.



MECHANICS

Last year we couldnt take the vehicle out for a dive at the time of our visit as the V5 application was still in progress. However, we did drive it around the courtyard. Eamonn now informs us the car drives perfectly as youd expect from such a thorough and meticulous restoration.

Engine and Gearbox
The car started fine from cold (see video) and idled correctly both on and off choke. The clutch felt good with a strong biting point at about half way of travel. There were no issues selecting any gear (including reserve) either hot or cold. The engine was rebuilt including a new cam shaft, timing chain, exhaust manifold, oil pump, SU carburetors, and fuel lines. A new radiator, hoses, wiring harness, and engine mounts were fitted along with a stainless steel exhaust system. The four-speed manual transmission and differential were also rebuilt with a new clutch, synchro, and resurfaced flywheel.

Suspension and Brakes
Not testing during our previous visit, however, Eamonn confirms both areas perform faultlessly and said the front and rear suspension was refreshed with new rear leaf springs. Brake components including the wheel bearings, lines, and cylinders were replaced too.

The Drive
Not testing during our previous visit; Eamonn also confirms the car drives and performs perfectly.

Electrics and Other
No issues apart from the fuel gauge gives the incorrect reading it flickers between 0 and 1/4. Eamonn was going to have it looked at but didnt get around to it.



HISTORY

The car was originally exported to North America and then to Canada in 2017.

A total of 8,405 miles are shown on the odometer and believed to be reset / correct from the completion of restoration in 2007.

Eamonn has completed nearly 1,000 trouble free miles over the year.

There is a large history file of receipts that were collected as part of the restoration from 2002 to 2007 please take a look at the media file to see full details. The vehicle also comes complete with the Heritage Trust certificate.
