While much of Europe remains under strict lockdown regulations, there has been some easing across the United Kingdom and the Irish Republic. Joe Rayner‘s 1932 Morris Minor Two-seater (ZV 83851) is seen here on a short foray away from base to Lackandarra Upper, County Waterford, where the imposing Monavullagh Mountains can be seen in the background.

This photo was taken at Beaulieu in May 1967 according to the handwritten caption on its reverse. The car is an unidentified 1934 Morris Minor Two-seater wearing polished wheel discs, an aftermarket accessory that was available from motor factors such as James Grose, Brown Bros and Halfords among others throughout the thirties. The Network’s photo archive contains just one other similar photo of a Minor, the wheel discs in that instance appearing on a 1930 Gordon England Two-seater Minor special.

Triple M corner no.222

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.

RX 5974, a 1931 season MG 8/33 Midget Sportsman’s Coupe was the subject of a publicity photoshoot of which at least four images survive. This internet sourced shot shows the car in a summer setting adjacent to an idyllic English cottage, which was also the location for another of the surviving photographs taken that day.
