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.
RX 9153 (2M/3150) was a 1932 season metal panelled MG Midget, built towards the end of the model’s production life, being subsequently replaced by the MG J2 later in the year. The panelled M Types were roomier than the earlier fabric skinned versions and this supercharged model was a full 10 MPH quicker, the addition of a blower adding £65 to the asking price over its predecessor. (It sold for £250) This photograph was one of a sequence taken to illustrate an Autocar road test, published 12th February 1932, a copy of which can be found on the MG Midget page, under ‘The cars’ in the open area of the website.
