1962 MG MGA
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
(a note about MGA engine conversions: with 101,000 MGAs built, pristine all original cars aren`t exactly in the million dollar class.....and, as with my own MGB engined MGA, some question as to whether it makes a difference in `collectability.` It does, however, make a difference in usability an ownership, more performance, far more flexibility, a higher degree of reliability....all reasons every MGA I have owned had an MGB engine. AND it would take someone very knowledgeable to be able to spot the difference)
Excellent wiring (harness looks fairly new) and electrics, rebuilt front suspension with Urethane bushings, new springs and lower control arms. Wood floors are excellent as is the chassis and the metal strips that support the floor pieces. We can see new rotors, and other brake parts.
Excellent transmission, quiet in first and reverse gears, excellent synchromesh, feels like new. Same with steering, brakes (discs), ride, handling, etc. Considering it is sixty years old, quite remarkable.
Show qualify dove gray paint (an original color), mostly new interior, wire wheels, excellent chrome, brand new top and tonneau, very good side curtains, carpeted trunk, original banjo style steering wheel, all original gauges work, and most of the rubber seals have been replaced. Along with fender beading (fenders were removed when it was painted).
A beautiful example of the last sub model of MGA.
