UD 2483, a 1928 Oxford registered Morris Minor Fabric Saloon was one of a series of development cars that were extensively used by the company for publicity purposes from late 1928 and into 1929. This particular car is known to have undertaken two tours, the first of which was to East Anglia, the second during the summer of 1929 saw the car touring Scotland. It was while on the second of these trips that this photo was taken, the image appearing in an August 1930 edition of The Autocar. (LAT Images Photoscan)
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.
Just 44 Montlhery, or ‘C’ Type MG Midgets were built in 1931-32 and a surprising number survive to this day. One such survivor is a 1931 car RX 8306, currently owned and still used competitively by Chris Cadman. This photo may or may not be of Chris’s car. It was taken at the spring 1932 MAC Shelsley meeting and shows a C Type with its number plate partly obscured. It’s established that another C Type was registered as RX 8586 and so this photo may be of that car (LATplate B8591)
