Triple M corner no.181

By June 7, 2020Triple 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.

Yet another heavily retouched photograph from The Autocar magazine, this one from February 1933. The car seen here is the second prototype MG K3 Magnette (JB 1269) which has been fitted with a revised radiator nascelle, that according to a caption (of this same image) in a post-war publication was an “unsightly addittion”. According to the same source, this car was used as a test vehicle for the 1933 Mille Miglia cars. (Photoscan from the LAT collection – courtesy of Motorsport Images)
