1934 MG PA

With current vendor for some 38 years, this car has a lovely patina with restoration work carried out in 1976; ready to enjoy

The MG P-type was manufactured from 1934 to 1936 and used an updated version of the overhead camshaft, crossflow engine used in the 1928 Morris Minor and Wolseley 10 - previously fitted in the J-Type Midget of 1932 to 1934 but with a much-needed three-bearign crank. The chassis was a strengthened and slightly longer version of that used in the J-Type with suspension by half-elliptic springs all round as well as rigid front and rear axles. This PA was first registered on 18th June 1934 and has been with the current vendors family since June 1973. They paid £375 at the time.

It was was restored between 1973 - 1976, using the correct parts as can be seen from the dashboard instruments. A replacement engine was acquired and rebuilt. There is a comprehensive file of invoices documenting the restoration works and in 1995, new blue leather seats were purchased from the traditional coach trimming supplier, Wm. M. Collingburn, costing over £600. In 1996 work included a reconditioned fuel pump and the engine overhauled again with a new head and exhaust manifold. The documentation includes green log book, a copy of the original bill of sale to a Mr Willie Boothroyd of Huddersfield, various correspondence, some MOTs dating between 1972 and 1997, tax discs and invoices. The most recent invoice August 2021 including stripping and cleaning fuel pump, fuel lines and points. This MG is ready to enjoy as it is currently with a lovely patina or to futher improve.
