1930 MG Midget VC 3753

The Triple M Forum have recently featured this postcard image which was purchased on eBay by the writer. The vehicle in shot is a 1930 Coventry registered MG Midget  VC 3753,  from the spring of that year. Mike Dalby the Register’s M Type specialist believes that the car is likely to have been supplied by S.H. Newsome, a Coventry MG dealer while records kept by the late Mike Hawke details the registration as being associated with chassis number 2M/1131. If that was the case then the car left Abingdon on 27th February 1930 and was sold by Newsome’s to a W.C Wadsworth – perhaps that is him in the photo?
