1959 MGA Twin-Cam Coupe

1959 MGA Twin-Cam Coupe back on the road where it belongs!

I started tracking this car in 2000. I started my search by listing an interest in a twin-cam coupe on my Twin-Cam Register e-mail message board. I got responses from a few people who were interested in selling their coupes. This particular car was owned by George Porter who lived in Palos Verdes, CA.

The coupe had an original matching number engine—somewhat rare with twin cams. George indicated that the car was owned by John W.
