We are delighted to offer this very well presented and pretty MG Midget that, upon close inspection, presents very well and demonstrates excellent panel shut lines with virtually unmarked paintwork. The standard continues throughout this small sports car with the undersides, interior and under bonnet areas matching its overall smart appearance. It was restored to a high standard in 2003, the works being carried out by AMV 3000 in Hampshire, with a documented cost in the region of £10,000. The quality of these works is still evident today. The MG further benefits from an un-leaded cylinder head conversion, telescopic shock absorber conversion on all four corners, chrome wire wheels, inertia seat belts, Mota-Lita steering wheel and a useful and easily fitted/removed hardtop that compliments the excellent soft top and tonneau cover. 

On a recent test, the 1275cc engine, with its twin SU carburettors, started easily and soon settled to an even idle. On the road, the little MG performed well and, importantly, the brakes brought the car to rest in a reassuring manner. This UK registered Midget is accompanied by a large file that includes the V5 registration document, old MoT test certificates, invoices and a Haynes workshop manual. We are advised that this will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate. Offered without reserve, this delightful MG Midget is awaiting a lucky new owner to enjoy the forthcoming summer months; for a modest outlay, surely sports car motoring doesn't get any better than this?
