JN 723

The two images to be seen here of a 1930 Southend-on-Sea registered Minor Coachbuilt Saloon were discovered quite seperately on eBay some three years apart. They have languished in the archive until a recent search for images of other ‘JN’ registered vehicles paired them together. There is little of merit in either photograph other than that they represent typical snapshots of the pre-war period. The unidentified motorcycle GY 8179 was first registered in London in 1932, while the top image is captioned ‘Riverside House – May 1939’.

Triple M corner no.129

By | Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s all belong to a family of models that commenced with the 1929 MG Midget and continued through to the mid-thirties via a long string of four and six cylinder OHC engined cars that forged the marques identity.

Liverpool registered 1931 MG ‘C’ Type Midget (KF 5114) has featured here previously (see Triple M corner no. 32) and this second profile image was taken at that same photo-shoot. The beautifully proportioned 750 cc ‘C’ Type was an extremely successful competion car and was developed from Eyston’s record breaker EX 120. The short stroke supercharged engine was eventually tuned to develop 52.4 bhp @ 6500 rpm.
