Identity Crisis: 1959 MGA Coupe

1959 MGA Coupe

This poor MGA Coupe seems to be having a bit of an identity crisis, wouldn’t you say? A previous owner must have wished they owned a Corvette rather than an MG, so they installed some Corvettesque side trim. I guess it is unique! Sadly this car also has rust issues, but with bidding at less than $2k, it might be worth snagging just for parts! Find this MGvetta here on eBay in Springfield, Missouri.

    “nothing atypical for an MGA.” enough said.

    That what you’d call “an ambitious project…” Do you know for sure if its a 1500 or 1600? If the sills are that far gone its a fair bet the chassis will not be in a good way. The front bodywork around the grill needs some straightening which won’t be easy. I do commend the previous owners imagination in adding the Corvette strips. A novel take. I can imagine the dark blue body colour would look quite striking if the area surrounded by the strips were to be painted a soft OEW….. Flame away people, only my opinion :-)

    I see only about $500. Plus shipping. Not much their.

    It seems to be a 1500 because of the single rear lights and the shelf behind the seats under the rear window.

    And the grill

    That is just painful
