Description:

1934 MG PA Sports 2-seater - single ownership for 52 years!
Reg. no. WP 6540
Chassis no. PA1144
Engine no. 692/135AP
\"This latest model is a marked improvement in all respects over its forbears,\" reported The Autocar magazine after road-testing the new P-Type Midget in November 1934. A replacement for the successful J2 Midget, the PA followed the general lines of its predecessor but it was equipped with a more robust version of MG\'s 847cc, four-cylinder, overhead-camshaft engine benefiting from a cross-flow cylinder head, a stronger, three-bearing crankshaft and better lubrication. Some 2,000 PAs were produced between 1934 and 1935 when the model was superseded by the relatively short-lived PB. This car has been in current ownership for a staggering 52 years and in 1980 it was treated to a restoration. Following this, this MG has been used and maintained with work carried out along the way, where necessary. The radiator was recored in 2008 and there was a new bottom end fitted by Formalls in 2013. A new battery and new blockleys were also fitted in 2017. In the file there is a V5c.
