Triple M corner no.18

By April 26, 2016Triple 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.

Another Midget Coupe features this week. TF 3009 was an October  1930 Lancashire registered car which carried the chassis number CM 1982. The car was completed at Abingdon on 28th July 1930 and then took a full two months before it was first registered on 6th October, its new owner being J. M. Toulmin. It is seen here taking part in possibly its first event – the 1931 running of the Reliance Cup Trial also held in October that year. Incidentally Toulmin had driven an Arrow Minor Special at the MCC’s Sporting Trial just a couple of weeks previously and was awarded a Silver Medal. (LAT Plate B7310)
