It has been reported that 11,378 left hand drive North American 1600 units were produced in 1959. This one is located in St. Louis, Missouri and is listed here on craigslist for $4,750.
This unit appears to be a good base and/or start to a Coupe project. The seller says this car has a “nice straight body ready for restoration” and it appears to be so. The buyer may need an engine, gearbox, floorboards, bonnet (hood), seats, door-cards, front bumper and maybe a radio to complete this project?
The car has been in a long term dry storage. It appears the buyer will have all five wire-wheels for this project. This maybe also be someone’s stalled project that you can pickup and finish. The glass that we can see does appear to be in good shape. Don’t the Coupe’s lines look good?
We know there are some BF reader’s who are MGA Coupe “experts”. What do you think this project is worth? Do you need/want this one? We do know that there is at least one BF reader that is looking for a Coupe, is that you?
