31st July 1963 – 14th March 2016
The MG’s original buff log book shows the third owner as my dad. It shows he bought the car on the 21st May 1964. Speaking to Mike Ellman-Brown (who shows as the second owner) it turns out, speaking to Mike, that my dad ACTUALLY bought the MG in July 1963! He was 23. The only reason it was registered to Mike in London was that he had a friend in the London County Council who pulled strings to get registration ‘JJJ 888’ assigned to the MG! Mike had ‘JJ 88’ on his MGA.
