A good, original, largely unmolested MG Midget for sale.

This is a round wheel arch (RWA) Midget - only made for a couple of years and quite rare. This is considered the most aesthetic of all Midgets and this, combined with their relative rarity, means that they usually command a significant premium over their square wheel arch siblings.

The 1275 engine starts immediately and runs very sweetly and smoothly, pulling strongly through all gears. I have recently renewed most of the ignition system with a new coil, condenser, starter solenoid, plugs, leads, rotor and distributor cap. The gearbox seems strong with no issues to report. All gauges, dials and switches function correctly - including, unusually, the tachometer. The seats could do with new webbing but are comfortable enough - there is one small tear in the drivers seat bolster - and come with the optional headrests!

There are some cosmetic issues with this car commensurate with its age - with small knocks, bubbles and rust marks. I believe the paintwork to be largely original, and it is starting to look a little tired with slight crazing to some areas - I havent rectified it as I enjoy the patina and I use the car often, but to really take this car to the next level this should probably be addressed. Likewise, the hood is tired and in need of repair or replacement although it seems to still be watertight. I havent been underneath the car as I dont have a lift, but what I can see looks rock solid - including, crucially, the rear spring hangers - apart from some small areas of rust on the front of the sills. The very bottom of the inside of the right-hand wheel arch will require some attention. There are some obvious repairs but these seem to be rock solid.

The car is supplied with a half-tonneau cover, 2 sets of keys and the V5C. There is an enormous history file going right back to 1983 which seems to substantiate the indicated mileage of around 54000 miles (which will go up slightly as the car is in daily use in the sunshine!) with the mileage in 1983 being around 33000 miles.

The spare wheel and jack are present, as is a copy of the original owners' manual, a Haynes manual and an MGOC spare parts catalog.

If you want a very solid unmolested Midget to enjoy this summer, or for a running restoration then this is your car!

I have tried to give as full and honest description as possible, but obviously viewing is recommended with a vehicle of this age.

Sold as seen with no warranty given or implied.
