MG PA / Q-Type Special
First registration 06.1935
FIVA Identity Card
Swiss road registration with veteran entry
Two thousand MG PA were produced by MG from 1934 to 1936 with chassis numbers from PA 0251 to PA 2250. The MG PA / Q-Type Special offered here has the chassis number PA 2083 and was delivered, according to the history handed down to us, to F.P. Ferris of Islington Garage, Trowbridge, Wiltshire. It received the license plate number BNF 131 on June 26, 1935, and the car was later fitted with Q-Type bodywork and raced by Ted Lund in the 1950s. The larger 1604 cc engine was fitted in the 1970s by Ray Masters, who then also raced the car.
This beautiful MG PA / Q-Type Special was imported from the UK to Liechtenstein in 2017. It is in top maintained and ready to go collector condition, has a FIVA Identity Card and is veteran-approved. Also present is the registration certificate V5 with the mentioned registration number BNF 131 from the UK. The car runs fantastic, the sound of the Wolseley is incomparable and it is a real pleasure to drive it.
In 1934 MG produced only eight Q-Types. The chassis was based on that of the MG K3, but was narrower and used N axles. The Q-Type was a great success as a race car and after World War II, many old MGs were given a second life as specials, receiving Q-Type bodywork and a tuned engine. The original Q-Type engine used the cylinder block from the P-Type, an updated version of Wolseley’s overhead camshaft, four-cylinder engine previously fitted to the J-Type Midget from 1932 to 1934, driving the rear wheels through a Wolseley four-speed non-synchromesh gearbox. Wolseley expanded his original design from four to six cylinders. Announced in September 1930, this engine powered the Wolseley Hornet and several famous MG models such as the K-Type. In 1934, the enlarged 1604 cc engine was built for the Wolseley Hornet Special.
