- 1 of 1,973 and awoken by its previous keeper after c.50 years' dry storage

- Engine overhauled, brakes re-lined, new cycle wings, fresh hood / tonneau etc

- Said to 'run well with good oil pressure'

This delightful PA is finished in Green and trimmed in Brown leatherette. It is one of just 1,973 made and was awoken by its previous keeper after some 50 years in dry storage - it is understood to have been in regular use up to the 1960s, prior to being incarcerated in a Manchester garage. Since acquiring the MG, the vendor has had the engine overhauled, the gearbox and rear axle lubricants changed and the brakes relined. He's also fitted a new fuel tank, hood and tonneau cover, replaced the original wings with cycle ones, added aero screens, and had the wire wheels checked and one overhauled. He informs us that the tyres are 'good', the gearbox, rear axle and engine 'serviceable', and that the latter runs free with good oil pressure. The PA's performance is apparently improving with use and with a little more fettling 'KY 7160' will have its potential fully realised.
