First registration number unknown, re-registered in Dec 1953 as NG1 and again in Dec 1960 as (currently) 8077 HP.

After purchase I carried out a full  restoration over 6 years, mostly myself, including welding and re-spraying and, 400 miles later, went to Luxemburg with the MGCC. I have also done a tour of Holland and several trips to Yorkshire.

The car has been used regularly for runs and rallies, including 13 South Downs Runs and quite a few weddings –  22,000 miles in total.
