|This original 1933 MG J2 is a little jewel. It has not had a spectacular past, but over 80+ years has had several owners and given much joy.
The 4 cylinder 846 cc engine has been completely rebuilt. The exhaust system is made of stainless steel, the radiator has been rebuilt, the slab tank completely cleaned and internally coated. The kingpins and brake cables have been replaced. Four new tyres fitted in March 2014.
Central lubrication on both sides for leaf springs and brake cables.
The MG has a fold-down hood and two side screens, with built-in flaps (to aid hand signal when changing direction).
