Triple M corner no.274

By October 3, 2022October 5th, 2022Triple 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.

1929 MG Midget (FG 5585) was originally registered in Fife in the latter half of that year. It survived at least until January 1945 when it was the subject of one of The Autocar’s ‘Talking of Sportscars’ series of articles, these being published in the magazine throughout the wartime period. The editor’s pre-amble to the article casts doubt over the cubic capacity of its power unit but it makes for an interesting read none-the-less. The scan of FG 5585 as seen here is one of three original prints submitted to the magazine for consideration. The editor decided to publish all three of them as can be seen in the attached PDF of the article.  Sadly it doesn’t look as if FG 5585 has survived, as the registration draws a blank when entered into the DVLA database’s search engine.
