1962 MG MGA MK II Deluxe Competition – Kansas City, MO

Seller offering a 1 of 311 built 1962 MG MGA MK II Deluxe with 65,922 miles at auction with a current bid of $20,300 (15 bids – reserve not met). Auction ends Monday, October 15 at 7:13 PM.   Meticulously restored, seller says the paint and interior are the original color scheme according to the British Heritage certification.  Engine and transmission were rebuilt less than 2,000 miles ago along with the 4-wheel disc breaks and front suspension.  Although we are usually partial to spoke wheels, we like the Dunlop pin style knock offs.

The MGA Deluxe designates the MK II equipped with competition suspension which included a near complete twin cam chassis, knockoff steel wheels, dublop four wheel disc brakes, and separate master cylinders.   The suspension changes required a slight variation of the frame to accommodate the master cylinders but is otherwise identical to the Twin Cam cars.

In addition to the competition suspension, these examples were commonly equipped with a Deluxe seat, close ration grearbox, and sometimes a hardtop.   Since the term “Deluxe” likely the creation of dealers rather than the factory there doesn’t appear to be a unified definition of what features are included.  Since the Deluxe does command a premium price, there are reports of impostors going to significant lengths to imitate.     Seller provides a number of pictures of the vehicle with the wheels removed to see the disc brakes.

This 1962 MG MGA MK II “Deluxe” is for sale in Kansas City, Missouri.  Check out seller’s listing on eBay for full details and contact information.
