1936 MG PB - Much recent work - 85% restored - just needs completing
The P Type Midget made its debut in March 1934 as the replacement for the J2 model. When road tested by ‘Autocar' magazine later that year, they were very enthusiastic, stating “....This latest model is a marked improvement in all respects over its forerunners..”
The P type was to prove highly successful and received a further boost when later in 1935 it received an uprated engine - now being enlarged to 939cc - which increased power output to 43 bhp. The PB, as this later model was designated, was recognisable from the PA by vertical slats on the radiator.
Two and four seat versions of both models were available, as was a sleek, fastbacked coupe version.
Presented for sale here is a 1936 2 seater which has been largely restored with much money spent including rebuilding the engine and gearbox, reupholstering of seats and respraying. Unfortunatley the owner passed away before he could finish the restoration and it is offered on behalf of the family requiring completion.
Acquired as a rolling chassis, much time and effort went into the car which is a very correct example and it should prove straightforward and rewarding to compete.
The original registration number remains.
There is a CD detailing the restoration work being undertaken.
