The exterior of this Midget is striking after a repaint in Ferrari Rosso
Red. It has a fabulous appearance with a uniform polished shine. There is
no structural corrosion or rust on the body, however there are some minor
areas of paint cracking to the panel seams. The often criticized
polyurethane bumpers are in excellent condition, albeit there are a few
minor marks to the front bumper. All trim articles and badge work are
intact and perfect. All glass and lights are original and in excellent
order. The rear luggage rack offers increased practicality and adds a
charming period touch to the car. The vinyl hood was a replacement in May
2010 and remains in as new condition. The rear mohair tonneau cover
purchased at the same time is also as new and compliments the car
A delightful re-trim in Cream leather with red piping add a touch of luxury
to what was originally MG's entry level sports car. The leather seats are
in lovely condition, as are the matching door cards and foot well trim.
The upgrade red carpeting is clean and free from wear. The walnut dash
with original Smiths gauges commends the interior well. All the controls,
gauges and switches work perfectly. The upgrade Sony CD radio with MP3
connectivity brings a welcome modern touch. An excellent revised interior,
adding a hint of indulgence whilst still retaining the spirit of the MG
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This four cylinder o.h.v 1493cc engine with twin carb offers ample
performance for daily use and produces 65bhp. The rugged engine is a
simple unit and was shared with the Triumph Spitfire so has fantastic parts
availability, every classic car owners dream! This example performs
faultlessly. The replacement MG Midget sports Exhaust provides an exciting throaty rasp. The
four-speed all synchromesh gearbox gives sporty performance coupled with
real fuel economy.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The upgraded Minilite alloy wheels are immaculate and finished in an
alloy/chrome style. All tyres are as new. The boot mounted spare is the
original Rostyle wheel and is in excellent order. The hydraulic brakes
employing 8.25 inch discs at the front and 7 inch drums at the rear offer
safe stopping power.
The history file accompanying the car is complete with receipts and
invoices for many new parts. There is a photographic log of the
comprehensive restoration the car has received, illustrating the level of
work carried out and the high standard of workmanship. Many old MOT's, tax
discs and a period brochure are included within the original MG black
leather wallet. The final stage of the restoration was a no expense spared
interior re-trim. The resulting achievement is the vehicle you see before
you, truly special.

MG Midget 1969
1969 MG Midget, I have owned this car for the past 9 years. It's a
California car and a nice example of a classic British sports car.
1977 MG Midget Convertible
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1977 MG Midget. These are
fun little sports cars for the money. This one has just over 90,xxx
original miles and has been really well kept. It's powered by a 1275 cc
four cylinder backed by a four speed manual trans. The paint is slick and
the interior is in excellent condition. I hope you find it interesting,
thanks for taking a look!
