PB 0301

 Midgets / Posted 1 year ago / 87 views


First owned by Clare Lyle, an Australian studying in the UK.  She returned to Australia in 1936 bringing the car with her.

Early history in Victoria is unknown, and the car surfaced again in Tasmania in 1948.

In 1957 the owner at the time, Mike Howell, was transferred by the ABC to Melbourne and brought the car.  Soon after he traded the car at Peter Manton Motors on a new Mini Cooper.  Manton’s passed the car for sale on consignment to Bob Jane Motors where it was purchased by Lou Molina for 100 pounds.

The present owner bought PB0301 in 1980 and uses it frequently in MGCC Victoria

and VSCC events. Recently competed at Rob Roy, it marked 70 years since that car first appeared there!
