My first knowledge of the car dates back to my secondment from British Leyland to the South African subsidiary in Cape Town in 1983. One of my work colleagues, Ron Ott, had bought the car in bits from a deceased estate and the restoration work was overseen by another colleague, the extremely knowledgeable M.G. expert, Ralph Clarke. Anyway Ron had rather wide feet and so struggled to drive her without simultaneously engaging both throttle and brake pedals. Perhaps people had narrower feet in the 1930s? But anyway he parted with her not long after to Heyns Stead in Pretoria.
