Although not a concours queen, this PA is a competition car in the truest sense of the word. Purchased as a ‘box of bits’ in 2007 by the current custodian, a keen VSCC member, the MG was re-assembled and returned to the road in 2013. We are informed that as part of the rebuilding process, the chassis was shot-blasted and repainted, the 19” outer laced wheels were rebuilt, bead blasted and powder coated, a new Enrique Llinares ash frame was fitted and a new body was skinned in steel. The bodywork was sprayed by the vendor. Huge expense was invested in the building of an engine by an MG specialist Ken Robinson, with new special components: the cylinder block, Venolia pistons, the cylinder head, rocker gear and the camshaft. The new crankshaft and con rods were manufactured by Phoenix and parts were supplied by Baynton Jones. The PA is also equipped with a modern clutch conversion, a stronger Morris differential on the rear axle, a new wiring loom and a part-stainless steel exhaust system. The steering and braking systems have been overhauled, which included attention to the cross shaft.

After the rebuild, the engine was carefully run-in and has an 80psi oil pressure when hot. The upholstery is described as ‘scruffy’, the windscreen now requires a replacement glass and the frame could be rechromed should the new custodian wish. However, the reliable and fun sporting MG PVT has been enjoyed locally and with its owner has successfully competed in M.C.C trials, gaining a Class O medal on the 2017 Exeter Trial.

A quantity of spare parts are included in the sale, together with a large history file that contains copies of paperwork from new until 1938, a quantity of invoices, the V5C registration certificate and a copy of the VSCC Buff Form.
