Current owner: Hilton Goodall, Queensland

MMM No: 790

Information: Built at Abingdon on 12/4/1930 (Kimber’s birthday) as a 2-seat roadster for the home market.  Registered PG 8733 on 25/4/1930 to its first owner Robert Hy Everett, 94 Telford Road, Hull.

History: All former owners are known and listed below.  We don’t know any history prior to the car’s purchase by Bob Riches in 1972 while working in the UK.

He also purchased a body kit with the intention of restoring the car on his return to Australia.  The restoration did not happen and the car was passed over to Bob’s son Andrew.  However Andrew was a Velocette enthusiast so decided to sell the car.

He placed the following  ad in the Austin 7 Club of N.S.W. Jan 2010 newsletter:-

“Little red 1930 M Type M.G.  A complete original vehicle dismantled and waiting for restoration.”

Hilton Goodall responded and bought the car.
