From the ebay Ad

Q: Do you have an history with the car? Did you copy the original chassis? What is original on the car (you say it's 40 years old) just the body?

A: I have the history under my ownership with a log book and all receipts. By history, this car was used in rallys but was in street trim with a Texas registration when I purchased it. I have the original frame and the MGA powertrain that came with the car. The body is original.

Q: So, was this a falcon bodied MGA originally? Have you attempted to get the car approved with other West Coast clubs?

A: The car had a MGA powertrain and a tubular frame, which I still have but is not included in this auction. This car is approved for VARA and HSR West and has raced with both organizations as a E Sports Racer. It was a season points class champion for two years with VARA.
