Description

This delightful and incredibly original MG was purchased new by Doctor Henry Lawson of Ambleside. Only months later he went abroad and 'LTJ 900' was placed in storage for the next 22 years. It then joined the private collection of Bruce Hewitt of Windermere, but didn't revisit the public roads until it became the property of John Connell in 1993 - after 43 years it had covered just 14,000 miles and has only driven 23,070 to this day. Since acquiring the MG from Mr Connell's son in 2005, the vendor has treated it to a bare metal respray in the original colour of Pallendine Red. Much admired at car shows, it is now considered to have 'very good' bodywork, paintwork, Cream interior trim, 1250cc XPAG engine and manual gearbox, and comes complete with a collection of invoices and old MOTs, copy of the original log book, and the car's very first tax disc, priced at a princely £10.
