A Manxed ‘M’

Many pre-war ‘open’ cars were the recipients of new homebuilt bodies in the austere post war years of the late forties and fifties. By now most of these cars were approaching 25 years old and their original timber framed bodies had seen far better days. This Surrey registered 1931 MG Midget PL 5390 had acquired such a body, styled with sharply cut-away doors, a flat windscreen and a docked tail, thus imitating the J and P type Midgets that followed the M Type’, although losing its louvered front valance somewhere along the way.
