Minor Two-seater KV 309

This image of a very late 1931 Coventry registered (32 season) Minor Two-seater was found  in a January 1936 Autocar editorial folder in the LAT archive. It’s unusual for a car no longer in production to appear in a current edition of that magazine but this shot was used to illustrate the effectiveness of the wing-bracing bar with which this car had been retro-fitted.

In just about every other respect (from what can be seen) this Minor was very much a run-of-the-mill four year old example of the model. It was running on almost treadless front tyres, which was not unusual in any way for the period and had a filthy underside. So very much an image of a Minor in regular daily use.
