Triple M corner no.72

By November 6, 2017November 7th, 2017Triple 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.

Little is known about this LAT plate C7830 except that it was taken in January 1936 and shows The Three Musketeers team, both cars and crews, prior to an event. Please contact the Network if the event or crew members can be identified.

MG enthusiast Mike Bradbury writes: The three MGs in the photo are the 1935/36 Musketeer Magnette/Magna specials. JB 6865 (Athos) usually driven by MacDermid; JB 6866 (Porthos) usually driven by Bastock; JB 6867 (Aramis) usually driven by Langley. These cars were built on L type Magna chassis’s and were a mixture of the best parts of L, N, J and P types.  It seems that only Aramis is known to the Triple M Register and is with John Reid. Their chassis Nos were Comp/N1,2,3 respectively. I’ve no idea where the pic was taken but it is possible that the three drivers mentioned above are the gentlemen in the picture.
