GE 5860 is Glasgow registered 1929 Morris Minor Saloon. It was almost certainly constructed as a Coachbuilt model as this late thirties photograph show the variant’s Kopalapso roof in an open position. However, it’s clear that the roof has been (badly) re-canvassed at some point, while the A pillar mounted spotlight and bulb horn were not uncommon accessories.
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.
The MG J3 Midget was a two-seater, 746 cc, supercharged version of the J2. This car, registered as MG 2348 was one of just 22 J3’s built and is seen here on an observed hill while taking part in the 1933 MCC London-Edinburgh trial. Driving the car that day was L. Castleton-Knight taking part for the first and last time in that event. Sadly, he failed to finish. (LATplate C613 – Courtesy of Motorsport Images)
