#4 cars are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped.
Condition 3
#3 cars could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 car, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior.
Condition 2
#2 cars could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 cars that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws.
Condition 1
#1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best car, unmodified, in the right colours, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours.

Model History: MG PA and PB Midget

In 1934, MG's replacement for the J2 Midget was launched: the MG PA. It was fitted with an all-new 847cc OHC engine with a three-bearing crankshaft and came in either two-seat or four-seat form from the factory. Coachbuilders offered other alternatives: a popular but expensive 'Airline Coupe' was created by H W Allingham of London.

Unlike earlier Midgets, the PA was not intended as a racing model, but unflattering comparisons with the Singer Nine when George Eyston entered three in the 1935 Le Mans 24 Hours prompted Abingdon to create a more powerful version that year. With a larger 939cc engine creating 43bhp, the 'PB' was only built until February 1936, with 525 made.
