This is one of many illustrated classic car guides I've created for the community. I hope you enjoy it. If you wish to find out more about the classic Spridget car art featured in this guide please click here.
In late-1966, the MG Midget, like the Austin-Healey Sprite received an engine transplant, which made it a much improved car. Although still recognisably from the little A-series family, the new unit was a 1,275cc unit, effectively a detuned S engine, with 65bhp and a much more robust feel than the earlier 1,098cc engine. Along with the Sprite, which became the Mk4 at the same time, the latest Midget was also given a neat, lower profile fold-away soft-top. Production of this type ran until autumn of 1969, when a further facelift was made to what had become a British Leyland model.
