LJ 4435 1930 Minor Semi-Sports
This Minor has associations with the Hambros Bank concern but when found certainly didn’t look a million dollars, as can be seen by the first image in this gallery. A lengthy and detailed restoration was carried out by Ian Grace who at that time was living in Grand Rapids, Michigan USA. The car was completed in time to be shipped to the UK for the 2007 VMR rally in Dorset although it didn’t take part in the two organised tours. Its owner returned to the US leaving LJ 4435 behind, initially in storage but it was later sold. Very little was heard of the car for a year or two, it next surfacing on a prestige vehicle trader’s website. Here it remained for four years, its price fluctuating between £16,000 and £18,000 before being sold earlier this year. Its current whereabouts is unknown.
