A plaque in the engine compartment of this pretty MGA states that it was sold new by Nuffield (Australia) Pty. Ltd., part of British Motor Corporation (Australia). Australian cars have right hand drive steering and this 1500 Roadster is so equipped. It was apparently exported to New Zealand in 1961 where it remained until our English vendor acquired the car while living out there, and he brought it to England when he returned. It was first registered with the DVLA in July 2015. We are informed that the car has a "Stage 2" cylinder head and HRG Engineering rocker cover and it has received much expenditure in New Zealand in recent years, with invoices for such work apparently in the history file. Also present we are told is the 1961 New Zealand registration card. The vendor feels that the odometer reading of 131,000 miles is correct and he describes the car as being in "very good" condition in all respects.
