Just saw this auction ad in Sports Car Market magazine. 1934 K3....didn't know about that one.
Apparently has a supercharger inside that box at the base of the radiator.

EDIT! Look what I found...

"MG's competition success in the 30s was characterised by a class win with the K3 at the 1933 Mille Miglia road race – the first time a non-Italian team had won."

Almost bought a very pristine silver TC, lovely car, while I was in college, but my father hated it, saying it was totally unsafe. Well, yeah, but so what. He was into huge Buick Roadmasters. Ended up buying a Morris MiniMinor 850, another car he thought was totally unsafe, it fitting into the trunk of his Buick, lol. It and the later Mini I bought were the most fun cars I've ever driven, esp the Downton Engr 3/4 race 67 Cooper S, typically British, wearing quickly, but really fun to drive, 0 to 60 under 6 sec, could outdrag (to about 70 mph) fun cars of the time, for instance Sunbeam Tigers, some Corvettes, etc.



1989 Milano, Shankle Sport
1991 164S, stock
1994 164LS (~Q)
1972 Morgan 27

62 Morris MiniMinor 850, 67 Austin 1275 Cooper S (Downton 3/4 race), 64 Giulia Sprint GT (1st red one made), 72 Fiat 128 Sedan, 75 Alfetta Sedan, 78 Alfetta Sedan, 78 GTV, 81 GTV6, 86 GTV6

I had another ride in the 1949 MGTC. The car is exciting at 35 mph and cannot believe that someone would drive this car on the freeway. I talked to the long time owner and we both agreed that it was like driving a slow four wheel motorcycle.
