In the spring of 1958, the announcement that the new MGA would come equipped with a two-cam engine delighted driving enthusiasts who craved the promise of transformative performance. Built for the UK market and among only 2,111 Twin-Cams produced overall, chassis YD1/2392 was constructed in 1959 from July 20 to 22, and was painted in Old English White with a black interior and a gray convertible top. It received the MGA Twin-Cam’s standard equipment: four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes and center-lock vented disc wheels. Prior to its mid-2000s arrival in the US, this Twin-Cam received a substantial restoration in the UK, and was sold to a discerning American collector, who added it to his assemblage of British cars. In 2013, YD1/2392 received a mechanical refresh that included induction, and brake and clutch systems; and earlier this summer, a tune-up was performed. Currently, YD1/2392 is in period-correct rally form; it features a cut-down Auster windscreen, front and rear Lucas accessory lamps, leather bonnet straps, and zippered tonneau cover for the passenger compartment. To complement the accessories and the rally experience, a Suixtil touring bag containing driving gloves, goggles, and an MG-branded motoring blanket are included. The MGA’s driver’s manual and its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate also accompany the sale. This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a rally-outfitted open British sports car with the sounds of a high-revving twin-cam engine.
