Additional Information

MG produced this as a "Chassis Only" Left-Hand drive TD with Export to North America specifications (EXLNA), on 6 May, 1953. The Vessel ledgers show that Arnolt coupe 303 was shipped on the SS Meir Dizengoff with Arnolt coupes 293, 299, 302, 308 and 314, received in New York on 13 January, 1954. Purchaser was W. W. Bruning, on 25 June 1955, invoice 131. According to John deBoer in BAT comments, "It may have been this car that was advertised in 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”. Re-done ca. 2003 with added Dayton wire wheels, non-original XPAG engine, 5-speed transmission and Marshall-Nordec supercharger. Sold on Bring-a-Trailer 1/21 for $90,999. Offered by Hyman (St. Louis) 4/22 for $89,500. Shown on BAT with 1955 Virginia license 10-92.
