This Morris Motors press photograph of their 1932 season Morris Minor Sliding-head Saloon is just one of a sequence of images taken of the car in that photo session. Of the six years that the Minor was in production the 1932 models have long been regarded by many as possessing the most pleasing lines, accentuated by the fluted radiator surround. Unlike the clinical environments in which today’s automobiles are produced the oil-stained floor upon which the Minor is standing would appear to indicate that in the thirties drips of oil were of little concern.
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.
This image of member Bob Howden’s beautifully presented 1930 (31 season) M.G. Midget (JY 8840) is available online both as a plain photographic print along with a framed version. (It should be added that Bob is not the vendor) The registration carried by Bob’s car was first issued in Plymouth, Devon in the autumn of 1936 although his car first left Abingdon in November 1930, which begs the question as to what happened in the intervening period.
