1962 MGA 1600 Series GHNL2100659 French registration ... - Lot 42 - Osenat
1962 MGA 1600 Series GHNL2100659 French registration - Nice condition - one of the last produced - Charming roadster M.G., Morris Garage, belongs to that small and prestigious category of British brands specializing in sport roadsters. In 1946, the T-series MGs that had made the brand famous before the war were put back into production. The "new" model was christened TC, a simple evolution of the 1939 model. A little obsolete with its rigid front axle, the firm with the octagon reacted by making technical and aesthetic evolutions over the years. But the real novelty came in 1955, when two MGs with special bodywork, designated EX 182, competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A few months later, these cars were seen again in customer versions at the Frankfurt Motor Show: the sublime MGA. With its elegant, well-proportioned lines, this "racing" type car was totally in tune with the times, and was offered at a very attractive price - a huge and immediate success. As with Austin Healey, Jaguar and Triumph, the USA absorbed the majority of MGAs built. This figure was a record at the time, as the MGA was the first sports car to exceed the symbolic 100,000 mark. The reliability and sturdiness of its powertrains were instrumental in building an excellent image. Very sporty, the interior is spartan but offers a very complete dashboard and enough room for two. It's a true roadster, with no windows in the doors. The soft top disappears completely. Our 1962 roadster was, like many others, delivered new to the USA. The upholstery, paintwork and chromes are all very well preserved. All vehicles in the Rollet collection have been out of service for at least 5 years, and will need to be serviced and inspected.
