MMM No: 2382

Information:  The earliest M-type in Australia, this car would have been built around the end of April 1929 in the Oxford factory before the move to Abingdon. It would have been a fabric bodied 2-seater for the home market.

History: The remains of M0275 were imported from New Zealand by Ed Ison consisting of the majority of mechanical components but at some stage has had a chassis transplant.  Ed added components from his stock of parts and eventually a vehicle began to take shape.  The car appeared at the M.G.C.C. National Meeting at Katoomba in 1977 painted yellow.  When the Ison Collection was split up the components of M0275 passed to Chris McMurray who in turn sold them on to Albert Johnson.

Albert carried out a rapid rebuild in time to attend the 2007 Pre-war M.G. National Rally at Beechworth.

The car was advertised on Gumtree circa 2017. On taking deliver the owner discovered he could not fit in the car and it was re-advertised and acquired by the Morgan Family.  The car has received a thorough refresh and had its first outing at Rob Roy Hillclimb in 2023.
