First registered as PMJ 6M to Mrs M Hunter of Greenfield , Beds on the 1st May 1974, having been sold through Kennings of Bedford, from the small amount of documentation available, the Midget appears to have spent its life in Bedfordshire as confirmed by MOTs on file from 1986 to 2016. The majority of the miles being covered in the late 1980s to early 1990s. We would therefore believe the present indicated mileage of 52190 to be correct. Being a later production MK 111 Midget it has the later body style with rounded rear wheel arches. The Midget appears to have been off the road between 1994 and 2015 as according to the MOT records only 249 miles were covered in the intervening 21 years, with only 573 miles recorded from 1994 to date, providing a low mileage two owner MG Midget which has evidently partially restored in the last three years. Work was carried out to the floor and body work, and at some stage a replacement engine has been fitted. It is in overall good condition, and could be improved upon by a new owner.

In addition the car has been resprayed in the original colour in recent years, there are some blemishes and small dents in the paintwork, the underside has had any necessary repairs carried out to a standard where it has passed UK MOTs and the Jersey Government import inspection , which is more stringent that the UK MOT. The interior has smart new red carpets and the hood is in good condition.

The replacement engine in good order, drives well,with good oil pressure and water temperature. The engine bay would benefit from a clean and tidy up.

Model History
The first version of the new MG Midget, announced at the end of June, 1961, was essentially a slightly more expensive badge-engineered version of the MkII Austin-Healey Sprite. The original 'frogeye' Sprite had been introduced specifically to fill the gap in the market left by the end of production of the MG T-type Midget as its replacement, the MGA had been a significantly larger and more expensive car with greater performance. Many existing MG buyers turned to the Sprite to provide a modern low-cost sports car and so a badge-engineered MG version reusing the Midget name made sense. The new Midget differed from the Sprite only in its grille design, badging, colour options and having both leather seats and more external chrome trim as standard to justify its higher purchase price.

The square-shaped rear wheel arches became rounded in January 1972. Also in this year, a Triumph steering rack was fitted, giving a gearing that was somewhat lower than earlier Midgets. A second exhaust silencer was also added in 1972. Alternators were fitted instead of dynamos from 1973 onwards.
