1959 MGA Ground-up Restoration

Our 1959 MGA restoration project is now complete. Looking back at the photos of the car when it first came in, it’s hard to believe this is even the same MGA.

1959 MGA Restoration

Believe it or not, this is what we started with.

We fully restored this car from the ground up, replacing every nut and bolt, and powder coating the full chassis and suspension. This car is now in better condition than it was when it was brand new. We have to say a big thank you to Jonathan Beller for doing amazing job on the body work, and Ken’s Body Shop for laying out a gorgeous paint job. We’d also like to say a big thank you to Moss Motors for providing all the quality parts needed to correctly restore this car. Restoring a car from the ground up is a huge task, but we sure are happy with how it came out. It drives even better than it looks in the photos! Our client had a green 1959 MGA just like this as his first car, and is extremely happy to once again have a green 1959 MGA back in his possession.

Check out the photos documenting the final phase of the project as well as a showcase of the finished product.

    I am only left in awe just by browsing the photos. Great job in restoring this classic favorite. One would have a hard time believing that the 1959 MGA has just been restored and it runs better now. I am pretty sure that the owner is more than happy having it back in its fullest condition. Driving this car around SLO will surely turn heads. Again, congratulations for doing a great job in restoring this 1959 MGA classic.
