I have no idea who painted this picture, as the signature is too small
to read and all I have is this JPEG, but it depicts the 1956 Sebring
race and the MGA entered by Manhattan Auto in Washington, DC. Note the
special octagonal "circle" around the registration number.
The three MGAs entered in this race (all by MG distributors, not the
factory, and therefore painted in the US racing colors of white and
blue) finished 19th (this car), 20th and 22nd overall; 4th, 5th and
6th in their class, and won the Team Prize. After the race these cars
were re-painted and sold as used cars by the dealers. There is no
record of who they were sold to or whether they survive to this day.
