One of the most beloved and best-selling models that ever rolled off the company's assembly line in Abingdon, England was the MG Midget. And for most roadster enthusiasts, MG was the most creative for offering them in fun and affordable packages.
The simple yet classic design combination of a two-seat roadster with a small engine and a manual transmission was nothing more than a enthusiast dream. First launched in 1961, the original Midget was simply a rebadged (yet more expensive) version of the Austin-Healey Sprite. Power came from a 948 cc inline four rated at just 46HP. The cars were so basic that there weren't even external door handles or locks. A second generation came in 1964 and saw the introduction of external door handles, roll up windows and locks and the power was increased to a whopping 75HP.
It was not until the 3rd generation that it received a larger engine using a 1500cc engine and to abide by US federal standards, some things had to be changed like the ride height and bumpers to make it safer. By the time production ended in 1979, a total of 73,899 Midgets were built.
Just in time for summer fun, the Midget offered here is dry car with excellent sheet metal, excellent fit, a very nice older repaint and an outstanding interior. The underside remains original featuring excellent floors and rockers leaving nothing to the imagination. The car comes with optional hard top, full tonneau, convertible top boot, headlight screens, dual outside mirrors, 4-speed manual transmission, and luggage rack. The car shows all the signs of consistent car and service. Mechanically, the car starts, runs, drives, handles and brakes very good and will make someone an excellent driver. The optional hard top extends the fun beyond the summer.
