Thoroughbred & Vintage @ Fontwell House


The MG M-type was produced by the MG Car company from April 1929 to 1932. It was sometimes referred to as the 8/33. Launched at the 1928 London Motor Show when the sales of the larger MG saloons were faltering because of the economic climate, the small car brought MG ownership to a new sector of the market and probably saved the company. Early cars were made in the Cowley factory, but from 1930 production had transferred to Abingdon.
Early bodies were fabric covered using a wood frame, this changed to all metal in 1931. Most cars had bodies made by Carbodies of Coventry and fitted by MG in either open two seats or closed two door “Sportsmans” coupĂ© versions, but some chassis were supplied to external coachbuilders such as Jarvis. The factory even made a van version as a service vehicle. The car could reach 65 mph and return 40 miles per gallon. The open version cost £175 at its launch, soon rising to £185, and the coupĂ© cost £245. The 1932 supercharged car cost £250.
The M-type had considerable sporting success both privately and with official teams winning gold medals in the 1929 Land’s End Trial and class wins in the 1930 “Double Twelve” race at Brooklands. An entry was also made in the 1930 Le Mans 24 hour.

This charming MG PA four seat tourer is described by the vendor to be in excellent overall condition. Finished in green over green, PA1392 was subject to a restoration in 2004 and has recently had its engine completely rebuilt and is in fantastic running condition. This is an exceptionally pretty MG Midget which should continue to prove itself capable of providing as much enjoyment in the future as it already has over the last 75 years.
