Additional Information

According to the delivery ledgers, Arnolt coupe 303 was shipped on the SS Meir Dizengoff, and was received in New York on January 13, 1954, with Arnolt coupes 293, 299, 302, 308 and 314. Original customer was W. W. Bruning (no delivery date given). According to John deBoer in BAT comments, "The Arnolt car number for this car is “303” and the MG-TD chassis number should be TD27360. The original engine number was 27813. The car had Peacock Blue paint and sat on MG-TD wheels. Eighteen Arnolt-MG cars sailed for the USA early January 1954 for the USA on the S/S Meir Dizengoff. Six cars were delivered 13 January 1954 in New York and these included Arnolt numbers: 293, 299, 302, 303, 308 and 314. The full run ran from Arnolt 218 to 320. Six cars were delivered in Miami on 19 January 1954 including Arnolt 296, 298, 300, 301, 304 and 307. Six cars were delivered 22 January 1954 in New Orleans, including Arnolt cars 297, 305, 306, 309, 311 and 312. The first owner of Arnolt 303 was reportedly “H.W. Bruning” and the car was reportedly first titled 1955. It may have been this car that was advertised 1964 in Wisconsin, fitted with a Laystall-Lucas cylinder head? There are three reported owners in Illinois from 1969 to 1979 (or later). The car was missing its drivetrain (and more) when sold though a mechanics lien and went to Virginia. Additional dramas ensued, including a “repossession”. Offered on Bring-a-Trailer 1/21, sold for $90,999. Re-done ca. 2003 with added Dayton wire wheels,, non-original XPAG engine, 5-speed transmission and Marshall-Nordec supercharger.
