The MGA With An Attitude
EX-182/38 RESTORATION - RT-500

In September 2005 one of the EX182 cars, presumably EX182/38, was procured stateside. Assuming this car is ultimately verified, it will take its position as the oldest known surviving MGA (even though it is a pre-production car). In June 2006 the car appeared at MG-2006 in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, USA. Later in 2006 this car was shipped to the UK for total restoration by Bob West. It was subsequently restored to the specification of the Fitzwilliam racing team.
