Midget Roadster
Chassis #: J2972
Engine #: 934AJ
Sold for $55,000 at 2014 Motor City Auction by RM Auctions.
MG introduced the J2 model in 1933. They featured a folding windscreen, fixed mudguards, and cutaway doors. They had powerful engines, lightweight bodywork, a strong chassis, and wonderful handling.

This particular J2 Roadster was produced by the factory in Abington-on-Thames on March 1st of 1933. It was supplied to University Motor of London on March 20th and then purchased that same day by a Mr. H. Hole. The remainder of the car's history is unknown through World War II. In 1957, it was purchased by Stanley Crater, an American G.I. stationed in Europe. Mr. Crater brought the car back home with him to Michigan when he returned from serving overseas that same year. The car accompanied him back to the United States on the troop ship S.S. Andria.

Upon arriving in the United States, the car was put into storage with the intention of restoring it once he finished work on some other project cars he had acquired. The MG, however, remained in storage in Crater's ownership until it was purchased by its current Ontario-based owner in 2005.

Under the new ownership, the car was given a restoration. It was completely disassembled in order to bring it back to as-new condition. Every mechanical piece on the car was either rebuilt or replaced. The interior was given a completely new upholstery in its original color of Connolly hides.

This car is fitted with several accessories, including dual Brooklands windscreens, headlamp stone guards, and a custom-fitted tonneau cover. A rebuilt Jaeger speedometer/odometer has been fitted, and it shows just 19 miles.

The restoration work was completed in the summer of 2013. The engine is an 847cc overhead-camshaft four-cylinder engine with dual SU carburetors and offers 36 horsepower. There are a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel cable-operated drum brakes.
