This 1961 MGA Lightweight Sebring Coupe (#44), chassis number GHD 100148, is one of two cars built in the MG Competition Department in Abingdon specifically for entry in the 1961 Sebring 12 Hour Race. Californians Jack Flaherty and Mr. Parkinson drove it to a 1st in class and finished 14th overall, the highest place finish by an MGA at Sebring. Post Sebring, the car was raced in various Florida SCCA events including the Orlando Nocturn Dark to Dawn Rally and various SCCA divisional races. The car was also entered in the 1964 and 1965 Daytona Continental 2000 KM races. The current owner found the car in 1977 in Titusville, Florida. It was restored to full Sebring specification and has participated in various vintage-racing events in England and Australia.
