Mr and Mrs. Fred Meis
The Vessel ledgers show that Arnolt convertible 307 was shipped on the SS Meir Dizengoff with convertibles 298, 301 and 304, and coupes 296 and 300, received in Miami, Florida on 19 January, 1954. The purchaser was Florence J. Hill, Oak Lawn, Ill., on 11 Feb. 1955, invoice 1873. Per Mrs. Meis: This car was purchased by my father in 1963, in Kalamazoo, Michigan for $1100 when I was 13 years old; we drove the car from Michigan back to Kansas. Over the next four years, I took my driving lessons in this car and loved the shifting, but had a hard time learning not to slip the clutch. I drove it to work several times a week. In 1980, after I had moved out, my father surprised me by giving this MG to me for my 30th birthday. In 2007 my husband and I moved to Nebraska and trailered the car with us. It remains garaged and continues to be maintained by my husband. Several times a year, we take the car out and drive it, and the same thrill of years ago returns. This car has now been in the family for 58 years (2021). It is titled as a 1955. Mileage today is 40,140 miles and believed to be original.
