After three years Grove sold the car to a Mr Long in 1935, by 1968 the car had passed through the hands of 28 owners.  At some stage the registration number changed to 68 723.  The car underwent a full rebuild and images record that some of the work was carried out in the workshop of Rod Brayshaw in 2008.

The last N.Z. owner was Rob Miller, after he passed away his widow Lesley sold the car to Geoff Starkey who imported it into Australia, arriving in Sydney in Feb. 2018 to join Geoff’s mixed collection of M.G.s.  Some fettling is planned including resolving the issue of the painted grille before the car is registered for Australian roads.
