Chassis Num: GHNL76841
|Sold for $55,000 at 2011 RM Auctions.|
This 1962 MGA MK II is a typical high-performance 'special' wearing Devin bodywork. Under the sculpted bonnet is an MGA 1622cc engine fitted with a Judson cylinder head and a vane-type supercharger. It is painted in Ferrari red and mounted on an MGA DeLuxe chassis.
Since new, the car has been given a complete restoration. In 2007, it joined the Gene Ponder Collection and has been used sparingly since that time.
The car has rebuilt MGA competition seats in red leather, full carpeting, and an engine turned aluminum dash with a full set of Smiths gauges. There is a wooden aftermarket steering wheel, period-style Plexiglas windscreen, a quick-release gas cap, special engine cooling vents and 72-spoke chrome wire wheels.
In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the RM Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $40,000 - $60,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $55,000 including buyer's premium.
