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.
Seen above is a 1934 season MG L1 Magna Continental Coupe which first appeared in the 1st September 1933 edition of The Autocar. Despite a striking two-tone colour scheme the model was a very slow seller with just 100 finding customers. The six cylinder crossflow head 1086 CC engine produced 41 bhp while the car was stopped by 12″ drum brakes operated by cables. The car cost £350 at launch. (LAT Photo scan)
