History:

Ex Alan Robinson
 

The MG Car Club Ltd MMM Register advised that the chassis file for the car has been lost, but that it was built on 22 April 1930.  No body style was recorded and is assumed that it was shipped in rolling chassis form.  It was exported to Australia in company with chassis 1523 where it was fitted with an Australian built body.

 

Alan found it under a house in Bulimba in 1995 in pieces.  It was previously owned by Harry Fletcher who had died some 10-12 years earlier. It was driveable when Harry acquired it but as happens with many cars was dismantled for restoration but never completed.

 

Alan Robinson immediately embarked upon a full restoration which he completed in 1998.
