Stunning 1959 MGA Coupe for sale in Sonoma California. Beautiful California car, finished in black with a proper red leather interior. Meticulously restored less than 5000 miles ago by a former NAMGAR member and electrical engineer who kept it in a dry garage, under cover and only brought out for fair weather driving.
The straight and accident free body was stripped and sandblasted to bare metal and sprayed with correct MGA black in lacquer. Wood was replaced with marine-grade ply then primed and sealed. The chrome was refinished as well. The interior is very comfortable and quite stunning with leather seating and all new panels, headliner and rugs. Instrument panel replaced with polished oak purchased from Moss Motors.
The car starts; runs and drives beautifully. Engine completely refurbished with new gaskets, seals, reground crankshaft, resurfaced flywheel, re-sized connecting rods and rebuilt carburetors. Re-bored cylinders (+.030), replaced piston rings as well as a new stainless steel exhaust & muffler system. The shifting is smooth and nice, all gears and synchros have been replaced. The electrical system has been completely gone through including ignition system and wiring harness, new fuel pump and a new 12 volt system using two 6 volt batteries. In addition the car has a rebuilt starter motor, new high voltage coil and distributor. Braking is excellent as well, with all parts replaced at the time of restoration along with the suspension, 60 spoke chrome wheels and Michelin tires. At this time the fuel gauge is inoperable.
This is a gorgeous MGA Coupe that has been beautifully restored and has a clear, California title ready to go.
