Motor around...   [Intro] [Two of a Kind] [A Legend] [The Restoration]      
 
Fred believes that his brother did not know that his car had been at the 1962 New York Motor Show, and did not realize the significance of the car in the history of MG sports cars. But, regardless, the car was parked, uncovered in the back of Russell’s house in Springfield, TN and deteriorated.

By the time Fred saw the car again in the late 1990’s, the cockpit and interior were devastated, as were a few other minor parts.

The body, engine, transmission, and most importantly, the serial number plates for body, chassis and engine remained legible. Also two of the three “100,000” insignias and the front plate remained, and are now part of the final restoration.
