MG MGA - MGA Twin Cam Stolen
|An mga twin cam has been stolen from the owner's house near Guildford, Surrey UK.|
It is a RHD car, colour green. It does not have bumpers and the front valance has been smoothed.
Chassis number is YD1/2548 and registration number is YLK 982.
The Twin Cam engine is fitted with Webers and has a fan in front of the radiator.
As you know the Twin Cam is most easily recognised by the "knock-on" disc wheels.
Anyone seeing this car should notify the police.

|I’m sorry to hear about this. This is bad news. The owner must be heartbroken. A very distinctive MGA that has been taken from the owner’s house, not far from where I live.|
Will not be easy to pass on so I guess it will be striped for parts – very upsetting.

|It might be worth posting on the other boards as well - MGB, midget & Sprite, etc.|
|I posted it yesterday on www.postwarclassic.com|
|The stolen MGA Twin Cam was located by the police near Windsor UK.|
It has no serious external damage but the engine has some problems, as yet undiagnosed.
Thanks to all those who looked for it.

|Thats great news Mick although not so great about the engine.|
When I first read about the theft I was thinking "where on earth will he get a replacement twin-cam!"
I hope the owner car can claim for the engine repairs on his insurance policy.
