1930 MG M-Type
Quite the nicest one we have
seen; in fabulous order; recent £18k mechanical rebuild; hood; a delight
from front to back
Well known to the M-Type Register, this spelendid
1930 M-Type has plenty of history, including its sale in September 1930 by
Dobsons of Staines to Mr Goring of Finchampstead (by this time just a few months
old). They offered it again in August 1931, when Mr Rohnsbach of Reading
acquired it, the car carrying the registation number UR 6621 at the
By 1952, it was residing in the Oxford area, now registered MG
533, a most appropriate number which it wears to this day. The buff logbook
shows regular ownership changes up until the late 1970s.
ownership changes took place from 2007 when a well-known Midlands collector
enjoyed the car, taking part in the 2010 re-enactment of the '100' ascents of
Beggars Roost hill in North Devon. It changed hands again, it's new owner
acquiring a VSCC buff form before its next keeper took the car to Classic
Performance Engineering at Bicester Heritage for lots of work which took place
between June 2016 and April 2018.
This included general servicing,
carburettor overhauls and rear axle seals. The seats were retrimmed in
2017 and the engine received major attention, including a complete strip,
check, clean and rebuild as necessary - a full breakdown of work is on file. The
gearbox and clutch were also carefully checked and rebuilt as necessary along
with various wiring work....the full CPE bills came to £18,250!
current owner took on the car in 2019 and has continued the good work, with some
finessing of minor cosmetic elements - items that have lifted an already
very nice car to the superb example on offer today. These are listed in detail
and include freshly blasted and powdercoated wheels and a new set of Blockley
tyres which look spot on.
With nothing to do but drive and enjoy, this
genuine M-Type has continuous history all the way through and is not to be
confused with a Morris Minor which has been converted to M-Type spec...the
correct chassis number is clearly visible on the front dumb-iron.
up little more space in the garage than a modern motorcycle, these M-Types go
really well and are a joy to own and drive. There are plenty of opportunities to
use them too, the MMM Register and VSCC offering a huge range of disciplines
from racing to mud plugging and everything in between. To enjoy all this, you
will need the car so get bidding.Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
