1961 MG MGA: Barn Racer #2

1961 MGA project

About two weeks ago we featured a crusty red MGA that I wanted badly and it looks like I have been given a second chance! Well, in mocking way I suppose. It’s too far away and the asking price is almost double what the other car went for. For a second there I even thought it was the same exact car! Compare the two and I think you will see the resemblance. This car has more rust, but at least the engine is still in place. The price seems very optimistic though considering that you could probably pick up a runner for this kind of money. But, as long as the seller would be willing to accept a more realistic offer, I think it could still fulfill my “barn racer” dream. What do you think? Find it here on craigslist out of Northern Kentucky for $8,500 or best offer. Thanks goes to Robert R. for the tip!

    ..half the car (much of the bottom half is rotted away and missing) …for twice the money …LOL
    ..Texas car is usually the better choice, at least they usually are relatively solid………….but this car at 8500 is a money pit…and plenty of it… what you called crusty -rusty, shows patience , then ACTION, is the way to find GOOD vehicles……

    The one they got on Wheeler Dealers was a bargain by comparison

    I bet he wants some fool to “talk him down” to some outrageous sum and walk away thinking $3,000 was a bargain.
