Triple M corner no.326

By March 11, 2024Triple 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.

This is a 1931 Renfrewshire registered MG Midget (HS 6373). The archive holds four photographs of this car which were purchased as a single lot but reflect different periods in the car’s life. This photo looks to have been taken when the car was comparatively new, its well-dressed owner parked up outside of an imposing property. The car has received at least two non-standard modifications, the first being the repositioning of the spare wheel to the bootlid (although this may have been a factory option) while the second is the fitting of dummy ‘knock-on’ hub caps. The car has also sensibly been equipped with front mud flaps. Interestingly, although registered in 1931 the car’s wheel centres are of the early type which were dropped from the Minor range in the autumn of 1930.
