For Sale — 1930 M-Type chassis #2M1536
This car had not been fully restored and is close to original condition. Some of the woodwork does have worm holes, dating from its time in England, but other that that, the wood is alright. Past English owners replaced the original 3-speed gearbox with a 4-speed gearbox, and moved the gasoline tank from the engine compartment to the boot together with installation of an SU fuel pump. I do not know when the engine was replaced, or where the 4-speed gearbox came from.
I understand the last English owner used the car for hill climbing. The car was last shown publicly by myself at the 2003 GoF West at Long Beach, California next to the Queen Mary. It is listed on the Triple M register of the MG Car Club in the UK as number 45. Have second UK owner registration book listing owners from 1941 to 1962. The car was imported into the USA in 1964 and was in storage from 1989 to 1999. Some spare parts are included consisting of two wire wheels, a solid copper head gasket, and a crown wheel for the differential.
The car is currently registered and licensed as roadworthy and I can drive around.
