According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, this particular example - chassis GHNL/87824 - was built to North American Export specification on March 14th-15th 1960 complete with heater, MPH speedometer and wire wheels. Reportedly belonging to Barbara Hemel of Illinois between 1971 and 2012 when it was repatriated to the UK, the two-seater has since been treated to an extensive restoration. Rewired, resprayed, retrimmed and given a mechanical overhaul, the MG A is described by the vendor as being in "excellent" condition with regard to its original 1.6-litre engine, four-speed manual gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork. UK road registered as `828 YUS' on March 22nd 2013, this appealing left-hand drive Roadster is understood to have covered just 300 post-refurbishment miles.
