The 1962 Mk II 1600 was the final iteration of MG’s classically styled British roadster, which began its production run in late 1955. This MGA Mk II 1600 Roadster has spent a majority of its life in California, where its second owner performed a comprehensive restoration beginning in 1984. That work, at approximately 92,000 miles, included an engine and gearbox rebuild.

Painted Savannah Beige with complimentary saddle leatherette seats, door panels, and dashboard, this MGA also features tan square-weave carpeting with contrasting saddle piping to match the upholstery. Chassis 105738 has been fitted with a tan Robbins “Stayfast” convertible top over tan metal bows and includes a zippered tonneau cover and plastic side curtains with dividers. Accessory wind wings and sun visors as well as a period-correct aftermarket grille guard are fitted, along with painted steel disc wheels, chromed hubcaps, and trim rings for a smart, yet sporting look.

This car is described by the consignor as being in fine mechanical condition with good oil pressure, and the chrome bumpers, grille, and other detail brightwork are described as excellent as well. Included with this MGA are its jack, a factory shop repair manual, and records and receipts dating from the mid-1980s. An AACA event veteran, this attractively outfitted late-production MGA offers its next owner enjoyable open-top touring, as well as countless opportunities for display.
