I did not seen a plastic tool roll for a MGA on Barneys site. I purchased one just like this one minus a couple of the tools. It was said to be from a MGA. Thoughts? Is the Ebay one correct for a 1600?

Bob, here's a photo from Clausager which shows an original Twin Cam tool roll; looks like the same style & material as the one you posted:

I don't see the flat blade bent wire screwdriver, or the 2-blade thickness gauge, or tire valve spanner, or the Dunlop tire irons (which may have been optional). A hubcap removal tool would also be original issue for disc wheel cars, but may have been superseded by a hook on the wheel brace (lug wrench), but needed again with introduction of the red Shelly jack.

I think that tool roll material is correct for the later cars
