The 24 Hours of le Mans
 

The MG P-type is a sports car that was produced by MG from 1934 to 1936. This 2-door sports car used an updated version of the Wolseley Motors-designed and made overhead camshaft, crossflow engine, used in the 1928 Morris Minor and previously fitted in the J-type Midget of 1932 to 1934, driving the rear wheels through a four-speed non-synchromesh gearbox. The chassis was a strengthened and slightly longer version of that used in the earlier J-type with suspension by half-elliptic springs all round with rigid front and rear axles.

The first PA used an 847 cc (51.7 cu in) 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 050 mph (80 km/h) time of 20 seconds. In 1935, a two-seater roadster cost 222. 1,973 PAs were made, 27 of which were eventually converted to PBs.

This unidentified kit was completed and finished by Tony Smith of Bournemouth
