|A rare opportunity to own a much loved 1935 Original Four Seater MG PB Midget with original registration RV7671. Triple-M Register No. MMM 3556, Chassis No. PB0416. Engine number APB 675. Gearbox number 692. A chance to own what is believed to be one of only approx 10 PB 4-seaters presently roadworthy in the UK, possibly worldwide, with a well documented history. During its life, as was normal at the time, the car has had some modifications and repairs but is still largely original with serial numbers of key parts matching factory records. I have owned and used the car for 28 years and I believe it to have had only 4 recorded owners including myself. Factory records indicate it was the 45th of only 99 Four seat PBís believed to have been built by the MG Factory, in this case for Lt-Colonel Charles Samman, a military surgeon of Madeira Hall, Isle of Wight. The records also show it was purchased on the 1st of November 1935 and delivered via the MG dealer Waldham Bros. Southend (see photo of the factory record). The car still has the original supplier's delivery badge attached (see photo). The car was factory fitted with built in jacks front and rear as extras and these still work beautifully. There was also an Oil Temp gauge and a 10 day Mechanical clock fitted as extras. Additionally, the tool box has an original Bakelite plaque (see photo) inscribed "University Conversion Table for P Type Midget" and showing showing speeds in all gears at various revs. Sometime in 1937 The car was returned to the factory following the death of Col. Samman refurbished and sold to Miss F E Boyes of Thorpe, Cambridge. The next two owners were Dave Jarvis and finally myself. The Chassis, Engine, Gearbox, Rear Axle and Dynamo numbers all match the original factory records from 1935. They are also recorded on the original Guarantee Plate on the firewall. The registration number RV7671 is the original registration as issued from the Factory. The car had a complete body off restoration between 2001 and 2002 undertaken by Classic Restoration in Perth, Scotland. Where possible all the original parts were reused although parts of the ash body and the interior leather were replaced. From the attached photos you can see the car is in excellent condition and ready for another 80 years. It looks wonderful, drives and starts well and attracts a lot of attention. As a rare four seater, itís great car for someone who wants to involve their family in their passion or just carry passengers or a little more luggage on rallies or days out. As a result of advancing age (mine) and some ill health the car has not been run on the road for almost a year so some gentle recommissioning would be recommended before running it again although I do start it regularly and the battery is kept charged. The car is presently dry stored and ready for a fifth new owner after nearly 30 years. The Midge bonnet mascot shown in the photos is not included in the sale (although I might be persuaded). The car is listed on the club register. I have some good documentation but apparently the Club also has access to a large amount of detail from the factory records at Abingdon. I am happy to answer any questions or send additional photos or video to anyone seriously interested. More Pictures at https://www.Kirkmichael.co.uk/twgmgpb Based in Scotland close to Glasgow.
