This lovely old car was first registered in May 1937 and has had a number of owners, all of whom appear to have cared for it very well, including a fairly extensive rebuild in the late 1970s by the highly respected Naylor Brothers. The rebuild at that time included a new body tub (so it has well-fitting doors), mechanical work and a retrim. We think the car must have been repainted again in the late 1980s/early 1990s, as the condition of the paintwork is good, with just a few blemishes. The interior has remained in excellent condition, with the original type seats and correct specification door cards, and a nicely trimmed rear luggage space, with side screen box. The hood is in good shape with no rips and a good, clear back window. The dashboard still retains all the correct dials and even has – albeit a replacement – the petrol tap for switching to the reserve tank, and the steering wheel looks to be nearly new. The chrome work is very good. This car appears to have had three engines in its lifetime, the current one being a very good upgrade – a 1548cc overhead valve 55 bhp MG VA engine (type TPBG). We think the gearbox is also from an MG VA, resulting in very good performance and a more relaxing drive. The car starts well and runs smoothly with nicely operating clutch and brakes. The underside is clean and tidy, although a fresh coat of black Waxoyl would greatly improve it.
Comes with good history folder with many invoices, old continuation book and V5C.
