Alan and Jen Mortlock are getting ready to move back to the UK, and I’ll be sad to see them go. I met Alan and Jen over 10 years ago when they first acquired their Glasspar G2 sports car and I was impressed with the quality of their work and the speed of which they were able to do their restoration. I had a chance to personally see the car and Alan’s work when I stopped by in August, 2009 on my way to Bonneville with the 1946 Bill Burke Belly Tank Streamliner – but that’s a different story. Check out the photos below from August, 2009.
In short order after purchase, Alan had pressed the G2 into restoration and by early 2010 he was on his way to nearly finishing the car. I wish all restoration could go so quickly! Check out the story when he was nearing the end of the restoration in April, 2010:
Alan continued and in less than two years the restoration work on the Glasspar G2 sports car was completed – and what a beautiful car it turned out to be. Check out the story of the restoration and the finished photos below. Alan and Jen’s Glasspar even has its G2 badge above the Glasspar grille on the front – what a beautiful piece of jewelry to show off on such a nicely finished car.
Hemmings Motor News thought highly enough of the finished Glasspar G2 sports car that they featured it in a four-page story in their April, 2012 magazine.
The Edge Motor Museum is new to the automotive community, and it opened earlier this year. The collection of cars looks superb and I look forward to stopping in next time I’m heading north – especially since they have now added Alan and Jen Mortlock’s Glasspar G2 to their collection. And what an announcement it was.
When the night of the “reveal” finally occurred, they cloaked the G2 in mystery as it spun on their automobile turnstile in the center of the room. The invitees gathered ’round for the announcement and the unveiling with Alan and Jen Mortlock on hand waiting in anticipation. And so…
They removed the cloak and revealed the Glasspar G2 for all to enjoy. The history of the Glasspar Company and their Glasspar G2 sports car was shared and Alan and Jen Mortlock were there to answer questions and celebrate the acquisition and display of their car by the Edge Museum with all of the celebrants on hand.
What a night that must have been 🙂
Across the land, Undiscovered Classics cars are more prominence, attention and celebration than in any years below. There’s much to be proud of gang and the Edge Motor Museum is leading the way by showcasing special interest cars such as the Glasspar G2 sports car.

So the Mortlock lock family is heading back to the UK with fewer restored cars in their collection. Alan and Jen….don’t worry we can still talk via Skype and WeChat and all other services that are “free” so you can’t get away from us that easily….*wink*
But more the question…..are you ready to find and restore one of those rare UK vintage fiberglass jobs I’ve heard so much about these past years? Do I have a job for you! 🙂 And if you find one and restore it, let’s cover the story for you here at Undiscovered Classics.
Hope you enjoyed the story, and remember…
The adventure continues here at Undiscovered Classics.
