Two postcard shots of OHC Minor Saloons feature this week which co-incidently were both taken in Kentish towns. The top image was taken in Maidstone town centre with an Essex registered 1930 Morris Minor Coachbuilt Saloon (VX 7593) holding the photographer’s attention. The lower, (badly) hand coloured photo looks to have been taken later in the thirties decade in Hythe, on Kent’s south coast. Here a 1931 Morris Minor Fabric Saloon (KJ 1658) has been poorly parked at the kerbside outside an Estate Agents. Neither registration is currently recorded on the DVLA’s database

Triple M corner no.267

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.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to find and buy images of pre-war MG cars as they are much sought after by that community. This eBay image of a 1929 Oxfordshire C.C. registered MG Midget (WL 6564) was, according to the caption on its rear, taken in Wales during 1929. This must be a very early production car as one of the MG press cars as tested by the Light Car magazine in May 1929 was registered as WL 6556, Midget production not commencing until February 1929.
