History:
 

M0402 was owned by John May when it was severely damaged in a garage fire together with two other cars (fortunately not MGs). Mark Alsop bought the remains in 1995 and rebuilt the chassis and running gear.

 

Originally the  car had a locally built body similar in style to a Jarvis, as shown on a photo, dated 1955,  discovered in Perth recently.

 

Mark has built a new body based on the standard factory configuration and has given the engine a working over which has amazed other competitors and produced a renewed enthusiasm for the M-type in competition.

 

The car is now well sorted, performs extremely well and is much enjoyed by all of the Alsop family; son Cam is usually quicker than Mark and Holly is even better.
