Hello,
I'm not sure if there is an appropriate forum on TS for this question, so I apologize if it doesn't belong here.

When I saw this from a distance, I was hoping I'd found a Rometsch.

Closer inspection reveals a frame and leaf springs, so to bad for that idea.

Regardless, can someone point me in the right direction for the make of this car?

Thanks

with the oval-shaped hole in the front fender area of the body, I am 99% sure the above posters nailed it with MGA.

Thanks,
I figured this crowd would know.
I have an employee who is an MG buff.
I'll ask him if this is worth digging out.

It is NOT worth digging out! The most valuable MGA was the twin cam and even if this is an original twin cam car, it would take far more to bring it back then it would be worth when it was done.
