|MG J2 1933, chassis J 3374, engine 2045 AJ 72, Owned for the last 30 years and fully re-commissioned after a total 'nut and bolt' restoration to original specification but also to a very high quality standard. Full photographic history of restoration available. Restoration covered everything, including professional engine rebuild. Previous owners Miss E.M. O´Sulllivan, London, and John Peter Thomas Green, Farnham Royal, Slough. The body tub and doors were replaced with new ones, ash, skinned in aluminium, from The Pre-War Center. The engine is an original J2 engine, with new pistons, fully counter-balanced crankshaft, produced in EN40B toughened and nitriding steel, incl. journals commissioned from Sports & Vintage, who also refurbished the gearbox, with a new first motion shaft. The engine was uprated to be able to take a supercharger if needed, specifically the new counter-balanced crank. The engine is thus the strongest possible if racing-events are in mind. Very recent complete professional cylinder head rebuild with new valves, springs, cam bearings and oil seals and full flow oil filter system then fitted. New clutch, and rebuilding of the 2 original 1” SU carburetors, done in July 2020.
Central lubrication on both sides for leaf springs, Marles-Weller steering box and brake cables. The car has a small 1/4 tonneau and a full tonneau cover. Original 12” brakes with fins, plus hubs. Refurbished Andre Hartford shock-absorbers, done by Mike Dowley, Sports & Vintage.
New battery and full rewire with electronic fuel pump, indicators etc., no hood, only 2 aeroscreens. Full dashboard with lots of instruments, horn and light contacts, f.ex. a very rare Jaeger combined rev-counter/speedometer. Many useful spares, lots of invoices on new parts, photos etc. Paint: British Racing Green 56 no. 69010 (Triumph), James Collingburn leather seats, apple green, (like the green benches in The Parliament). Floorboards in skinned aluminium. The car has won the Danish MGCC 1st prize, Gavnø Castle in Denmark 2nd prize, and the Ringkøbing Run 1st prize for best restoration.
My old Father and I enjoyed the Brooklands racetrack in Weybridge and the London-Brighton Run in 1994, as the only Danish MMM-members. Ole Rimmen, DK 9800 Hjoerring, Denmark.
