Triple M corner no.286

By February 19, 2023Triple 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.

VN 2189 is a 1930 MG M Type Midget first registered in the North Riding of Yorkshire. This eBay screengrab shows the car parked up outside the gates of an unidentified towerless church, presumably somewhere in that county. Does anyone recognise the location?

Long-term MG M Type owner Keith Durston points out that this M Type appears to be all one colour, much like his own all-red version of the model. This would make VN 2189 quite a rare ‘animal’ in that very few period images exist of these single-colour cars, the vast majority of early Midgets sporting contrasting black wings and wheels against the fabric-covered body colour of choice.
