This is my much loved 1977 MG Midget, I have owned her little under two years in which time I have rebuilt her and taken her on a 6000 miles trip round Europe. She is one very special car which gets lots of attention wherever she goes. She comes complete with an original Ashley hardtop complete with original glass and the very special and very rare sprite egg box grill.

Work done:

New suspension bushes fitted throughout

Rear suspension lowered and spring hangers replaced

Front kingpins replaced 6k miles ago

New front brakes including callipers, disks, pads and hoses

Rear drum overhauled new shoes fitted

New handbrake cable

New clutch master and slave cylinder

Engine was rebuilt, new bearings, piston rings, new unleaded cylinder head, new rocker shaft, cylinder head oil feed line fitted (stops the rocker shaft running dry), thermostat replaced, ignition replaced with electronic pickups instead of points, Top of the range electric radiator fan fitted

New oil and temperature gauge fitted (demon tweaks not a cheap copy)

Headlights were replaced with new clear units replacing the sealed units, very good in the dark

Wiper arms and blades replaced

Steering wheel replaced with a smaller sportier one

Powder coated Roll over bar fitted

Amplifier and speakers installed, play music through a 3.5mm Jack connection with no ugly head unit in site.

12v auxiliary power socket fitted

Battery isolation switch.

Foot wells clad in aluminium with a new glove tray fabricated

Rostyle wheels fitted with chrome finishing rims

Both inner and outer sills have been replaced by previous owner

Can be registered as a historic vehicle (No tax and no MOT)

Bad Parts;

Paint work was done but would rate at 7/10 as the quality was not the best engine bay and boot still purple.

Both doors were skinned by PO and could do with fitting correctly

Oil leaks on engine diff and gearbox (it’s a Midget)

There are some rust stains starting to show on the rear arches and window pillars

Driver’s side floor most likely needs a patch

Soft top is on useable condition would rate at 6/10 with a crack in rear window

Window wiper switch not original

Colour change not updated on V5

She is taxed and MOT'd till May 2013, the only reason I am selling her is that i now live in New Zealand and it’s not economical to ship over.

Viewing is welcome and recommended, but will answer all questions honestly.

 

Happy Bidding

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
