|2M1506 is believed to have been displayed in a museum in Belgium for many years, hence the good condition of the chassis and body. It is ready to drive away, with no further work to be done unless somebody wants to upgrade to concours condition. I have a document giving some of the history, dates, and costs, from various owners, email me if you would like a copy. The biggest recent expenditure was a complete engine overhaul costing some £11,500+ and the car has only done 100 miles or so since. I have just fitted an updated dynamo and solid state regulator, as the original dynamo had been cobbled together with 12v coils.
Starting from the ground up all these are "as new": 2 tyres, 5 wheels, Hartford suspension, brakes, floor boards and interior, exhaust, engine, clutch, dynamo, front cycle wings, radiator, headlights and indicators, (even the grease nipples have been renewed)! Chassis is in excellent condition. The replacement of the boat tail to a J2 type (dummy) petrol tank happened over 50 years ago. It could be reverted to a boat tail (I even have the plans for this), but I think it looks good at present. VSCC have it recorded with this modification.
It retains the original 'MG' number plate and has a VSCC buff form to allow competition use. The document files are extensive with genuine invoices/receipts for over £20,000 spent on the restoration. Many hours have been spent solving all the little niggles from being in storage. It now need somebody to use it.
