Lot details
Registration No: YSU 840
Chassis No: HDR4350241
Mot Expiry: Sept 2016

Launched at the 1955 Frankfurt motorshow, the MG A featured a chassis penned by Roy Brocklehurst and power courtesy of the 1,489cc straight-four B Series engine from the MG Magnette Saloon. 'YSU 840' started life as a US export model and was first registered in the UK in 1990. A lefthand drive example to this day, it is presented with White bodywork complemented by Black interior trim, rides on wire wheels and boasts a luggage rack and leather-rimmed steering wheel. In recent times it has benefited from the installation of a Revotec electric fan, stainless steel exhaust, and H4 halogen headlamp conversion. Its current engineer keeper treated the MG to a mechanical overhaul, during which the brakes and suspension were attended to, and new tyres, water hoses, and rear light lenses fitted. The MG comes complete with V5C, fresh MOT although exempt and numerous invoices; many of which are from marque specialists such as Brown & Gammons and MGOC spares.
