The MG P-Type, first introduced in 1934, superseded the J-Type Midget and formed the foundation on which the marque's famous T-Series would be built. The P-Type was powered by the last road going MG to feature Cecil Kimber's advanced overhead cam cylinder head. For the P-Type, an additional main bearing was added to make the engine more than strong enough to handle the rigors of competition and forced induction. In the face of increasing competition, the updated PB featured a 939cc version of the same OHC four-cylinder engine. (as equipped on this particular car)

MG was still very much a company that built road cars to support its sporting exploits, which inspired many owners to upgrade their P-Types accordingly - as many were bought by sporting enthusiasts who used their road going MGs in casual motorsport events such as rallies, hillclimbs and road racing. In the never-ending quest for speed and style, a number of P-Type owners have modified their cars by shedding accessories and trim, adding more power, and fitting lightweight bodywork.
