Rare in MKII guise, this delightful MGA Coupe comes to us from it's long term owner who had it restored it between 2014/15. The car remains in remarkable condition with excellent bodywork and well resolved mechanicals. Benefitting from a rarely seen folding fabric Webasto sunroof which was fitted in the early 80's, this must surely make for one of the most desirable combinations, the practicality of a Coupe and the wind in the hair experience of a soft top. It is also fitted with a Ford type 9 5-speed gearbox for more relaxed touring.

It also has been fitted with an oil cooler, single 12v, an alternator and converted to negative earth, inertia reel seat belts, Kenlowe fan, Halogen headlights and a full scale oil pressure guage.

There is a thick history file with the car supporting the view that it has been cherished since being repatriated from the US in 1980.

Currently being prepared for sale, it will be on the button and ready to go.

Commission sale on behalf of the owner, available for viewing in our dry, well lit sales barn.


In excellent restored condition, good panel gaps and overall extremely presentable.


We are currently fitting a reconditioned clutch/brake master cylinder and the car will be be fully serviced before leaving us. The clutch has been recently replaced and an invoice from the distant past hints at a fast road engine.


The paint finish is excellent, complimented by chromework that has a light patina but remains bright and presentable, good wire wheels that will have new tyres fitted by the time of sale.


Retrimmed to a high standard, the overall impression is very positive with a light and airy feel due to the all around glass, the dashboard in particular is most attractive and has been recovered to a high standard.


Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.

  • When you own a classic car knowing where to get the best spare parts is crucial. We have a dedicated Parts Manager who will track down the best quality and hardest to find part for your car, we like to call this Automotive Archaeology, if it’s available ... we will find it.

  • Classic cars are special, and we can provide MOT testing for yours.

  • We clean and air dry the underside of your cherished classic and treat with a choice of clear or black waxoyl.

  • If you need to store your classic car for a short period or more long term, wouldn't it be reassuring to know that it was being stored by a highly skilled professional team who love their work?

  • When your car is with us we have a wide selection of courtesy cars for you to use.
