'Cheap speed indeed' - Light Car and Cyclecar

- Restored in the early 1990s including construction of a new body

- Well cared for with regular maintenance and servicing

- Invoices for restoration work, described as an "amazing car to drive"

Further info:

The M-type was the first of the Midgets and enjoyed considerable sporting success, both privately and with official teams, winning gold medals in the 1929 Land's End Trial. They were awarded the Team Prize and class wins in the 1930 24hr "Double Twelve" race at Brooklands.

Forming part of a small private collection for the past 20 years, this attractive M-Type was the subject of a restoration in the early 1990s. Invoices on file attest to the fact that this included construction of a new body and we understand a replacement engine has also been sourced at some point. The car appears to have been well cared for ever since and we are informed it has been regularly maintained and serviced.

Finished in green fabric with black bonnet and green leather interior, it has seen minimal use since completion and minor jobs still required include the sourcing and fitting of a choke cable and hood. Offered with Swansea V5 document and invoices for the restoration work it is described as being an "amazing car to drive".

PLEASE NOTE: The vendor is currently unable to locate the ignition key.
