Mot Expiry: Jan 2015

Converted and raced by Rae Davis (then of Moto Build Ltd) during the mid/late-1980s, `7448 HJ' achieved some memorable results including a first at Macau. A genuine 1963 narrow tunnel car, it was used for several Manx Classics by next keeper Leslie Phillips and briefly belonged to veteran MGB campaigner Barry Sidery-Smith before entering the current ownership on 31st July 1999. Built by Oselli to Stage 3a specification, its current 1950cc engine was fitted in 2006. Treated to a new crown wheel and pinion, hi-torque starter motor, roll cage, rear wheel bearings and fire extinguishers some three years later, `7448 HJ' gained a reconditioned overdrive unit and engine refresh (45mm inlet valves, full race camshaft, baffled sump etc) during 2010. Last raced in the 2011 MGCC Peter Best Insurance Challenge, `7448 HJ' underwent some cosmetic fettling the following year and passed its last MOT test on 28th January 2014 with no advisories.
