You missed an opportunity to buy a well sorted 1934 Beetleback MX2 Morgan.
Fully rebuilt, and in fine order. New Beetleback body, mildly tuned engine, put together by George Darbyshire, with all new internals. Many thousands spent, recent respray, new battery, tonneau, steering wheel. Used in VSCC hillclimbs and sprints during 2017, but equally happy going to the pub.
