You are bidding on a well-maintained, attractive driver that is a blast to drive and elicits smiles from both MGA enthusiasts and the public. The $5000 minimum bid is is well below market value. There is no reserve, so you can be sure someone will enjoy it as much as I have. Please check the sold MGA listings on Ebay to get a sense of valuation as there are some good comps. I have owned the car since 1982. It has been garaged and used regularly on good weather summer weekends. Total mileage is 74,000. I am the third owner. Selling now as the garage space is needed for the winter and no one in my family is a car enthusiast. Go ahead and channel Greg Marmalard.

While not a show car, it still has attractive paint from a few feet away with no obvious body rust. The current paint was applied before 1982 so it is showing its age with road chips and some crazing. All the gauges and lights work. Starts easily and runs strong. Wire wheels are in good shape.
