The MG P-type is a sports car that was produced by MG from 1934 to 1936. The first PA used an 847 ccm engine similar to the J-Type's, now with a 3-bearing crankshaft, improved camshaft, and twin OM-model SU carburettors. It produced 36 bhp (27 kW) at 5,500 rpm, allowing a top speed of approximately 74 mph (119 km/h), and a 0–50 mph (80 km/h) time of 20 seconds. 1.973 PAs were made, 27 of which were eventually converted to PBs.

First registered in December 1934 when it was sold to Flight Lieutenant Newall who was based at the heavy bombers training unit at RAF Abingdon. It is finished in light and dark Cambridge and Oxford blues with matching upholstery and trim. We have been advised that the car was used in driving tests at Brooklands in 1935 and in Hill Climbs with the Midland Car Club in 1936. Little history is known after this time until the car was sold for restoration at auction in 1995 and returned to the road in 1997. The same owner retained the car from 1995 until 2019 when acquired by the vendor. It comes complete with a history file containing early correspondence between the original owner and the MG factory, receipts, letters, various MoTs and tax discs. Although it has had little use recently it is described by the vendor as running well. Benefits from new Blockley tyres on the front.
This MG PA presents in good order throughout, the car started immediately when requested and the engine ran very smoothly with no adverse rattles or noises. The vendor has fettled this car well to ensure the car is ready to be used and enjoyed by any new owner. These stylish Abingdon built sportscars always cause interest wherever they appear. It is hard to imagine this vehicle is 87 years old, what a great way to enjoy classic car motoring for a relatively modest outlay.
