Two MGAs Plus A Gigantic Lot Of Parts!

If you are an MGA fan you will be salivating shortly! With parts from at least 12 different cars (do the math with the doors) and two relatively complete cars, you could create your own pair of MGAs and go into business selling the rest of the parts! The cars and parts are located in Uxbridge, Massachusetts, and are listed for sale here on eBay. The buy it now price is $9,888 but lower offers are welcomed.

Let’s look over the 1957 model first. It has a hardtop (I believe it’s aftermarket?) and still has a complete drivetrain installed. While there’s a pretty decent amount of surface rust in spots, I was reminded by this picture that MGA doors, bonnet (hood), and boot lids (trunk lids) are aluminum — score one for restorers!

Not only are the engine and transmission still in this car, but the auxiliary items such as the SU carbs and heater box are also still in place. No details are given as to the state of the engine, and it’s not clear that the seller knows any more than what is in the ad. Unfortunately, no titles currently exist but the seller implies they can be obtained. Personally, any offer I submitted would be for the whole shebang plus a pair of titles, but that’s me.

The 1960 roadster does not have a drivetrain, but plenty and I mean plenty (!) of drivetrain parts are included in the sale to put one together. While the sills aren’t there, the bottom of the front fender on this side may have been repaired already and the rear fender doesn’t look bad. The MGA was introduced to great fanfare in late 1955 and stayed in production until 1962, being upgraded along the way. It’s a great compromise between the “primitive” T-Series cars and the “posh” MGB while being simpler than both by some accounts.

And now on to the parts! This is a selection of doors, boot lids, and bonnets. There are 23 “extra” doors, 10 “extra” bonnets, and 9 “extra” boot lids included in the auction!

Here’s some of the 22 “extra” fenders that are included!

Here is one of the four pallets of mechanical components that are included! What do you think about this great find submitted by Barn Finds reader Mr. Petroholic? And if any of you decide to open an MGA store, be sure to let us know!

    Good grief, no wonder it’s hard to find fenders and doors for an MGA

    I met a guy and his son in NH a few years ago and again in FL as he and his son were touring the US in his “A”. Known around the community as the MGA Guru, I wonder if he has seen this?

    Brian – You’re talking about Barney Gaylord. Barney knows all, he sees all. I’m betting he does know about this. Read his extensive observations and advice about all matters MG here: https://mgaguru.com/mgtech/. Barney is indeed the MG guru!

    The problem with a stash this large, and one that includes multiple complete cars, is the logistics of getting everything to its new home if a buyer is located out of state (or even just a few hundred miles away). Seemingly every hoard of parts/parts cars by sellers on the internet provides an opportunity to state “make one good car out of several” when in reality these parts will likely NOT make a show-winning MGA. Probably just a decent driver. If the price stays where it is, hopefully someone in Massachusetts will bring home a bargain.
