This 1962 MGA 1600 Mk II roadster was completed on 30 January 1962. A factory left-hand-drive example, the car was shipped to North America for sale through a U.S. dealership. According to the BMIHT Certificate, which accompanies the car, it left the factory painted black, with a red interior and grey top. The car is powered by a 1,622-cc inline four-cylinder engine featuring twin SU carburetors; it is paired to a four-speed manual transmission. The car rides on BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewall radial tires which are mounted on painted knock-off wire wheels. Lucas fog lights help illuminate the road during inclement weather, and the MGA’s front disc brakes help bring the car to a safe stop. The interior is completed in a beautiful shade of red and features Jaeger instrumentation, Tudor Windscreen Washer, as well as removable side windows, and an interior matching tonneau cover. Accompanying the car are service receipts from 1985 to 2011. The consignor purchased the car in 2012, where it was maintained in a large private collection.

The Mark II was the final iteration of the MGA, and it remains a desirable model among collectors today; this 1962 example is no exception. A beautifully presented vehicle throughout, it is among the last built in the final year of production. This is an excellent opportunity to purchase an iconic British sports car, one to show and enjoy.
