This 1961 Mark II MGA Coupe we have for sale was first registered on 25th October 1961 and is offered for sale as a total restoration project on behalf of a valued customer. It is an original RHD UK car which still retains its original brown log book as well as a current V5C.
The car comes complete with
- 4 Steel wings (new/unused) (to replace the fibre glass ones currently fitted)
- Radiator grille(s)
- 1 boot rack (new/unused),
Should the buyer not require the above parts the price would be adjusted accordingly.
We are offering the car for sale 'as it is' for any potential buyer to restore themselves OR we can discuss with a buyer the option of Junction 59 restoring the car on their behalf.
Junction 59 Ltd (formally named Simon J Robinson Ltd) are fully experienced restoring all types of MG cars and should this option be of interest we would be privileged to provide details of our many past and current restoration projects. We believe this car would look stunning if restored to its original colour scheme of black exterior and red interior.

Research and available documents show that the car was taken off the road on 26th Dec 1979 with a mileage of 18,467. (Unverified) It has a MK 11 1622cc engine and 4 speed gearbox and currently has fibre glass wings.
Contained in the history file are various documents provided by previous owners detailing their involvement and some history of the car.
It appears that he engine was rebuilt at some stage (refer to previous owners documents in the history file) and re-renumbered. Further research with the DVLA, British Motor Industry Heritage Trust and MG Club confirmed that the engine should have retained its original number as the whole engine was not replaced. All this correspondence to the DLVA, British Motor Industry Heritage Trust and MG Club confirm that the original numbering should be retained and this is what the current V5C now shows. The buyer should review all the correspondence on file to satisfy themselves of this.
Remember to check the details of this vehicle with the dealer before you buy it to make sure that all the information is accurate.
