This beautfully engineered restoration appears to have spent nearly all its life in the Cheshire area, having been supplied new by University Motors to a Mr. Samson in Altrincham on 25th Nov. 1934. The original buff log book accompanies the V5c and details the few owners that it has had. The car comes with a full history file.
As far as we can tell it was totally restored in 1999, and all this is recorded in the photographic file, showing a full strip down, new body, and rebuilt engine with a new block, which was able to take the original 1775AP number as the old block was scrapped, but with the advantage of allowing a much bigger bore in the future and years of trouble free running. In addition a new water pump was fitted and the much more reliable 2-brush vertical dynamo.
We have had it in our workshop and tuned the carbs., sorted out the fuel feeds with one of our new twin 'O' ring fuel taps, rebuilt the steering which is excellent, refurbished the h'lamps and fitted stoneguards and aeroscreens. The car has a totally original dash with all correct switches, deluxe gauges and working trafficators.
The paint finish is cellulose, and is superb in Ulster & Dublin greens with a complete Collingburn interior in original Connolly apple green hide with black wool carpets edged in matching green. The car has the optional factory bucket seats, preferred by many to the bench back, giving more individual comfort and longer leg room. The seats have that lovely patina so typical of early Collingburn work. The weather equipment comprises full/half tonneau and unused new double duck roof. There are a pair of s/screens that need fitting.
The cost of a proper professional restoration such as the P types offered on our web-site is approaching £50 to £55,000 these days, so to obtain such a car in the low/middle forty thousands is an investment not to be missed, nor confused with the dozens of much cheaper cars that appear OK, but then need thousands spending on them. Not everyone has the budget for a top spec car, and we are always happy to value, inspect or report on any car you find.
This beautiful P type here is not far short of the concours black PA with the PB spec engine we also have for sale, so no wasted day coming here if you're looking for a top-of-the-tree MG 'P' type.
