MG Midget 1500 1977 Old English White 45k miles
New MOT. Taxed until August
This is my charming MG Midget in white. I thought this day would never come but alas a move to London means I can't keep the Midge.  
This is an excellent example of a Midget that has had extensive restoration work carried out by the previous owner. I have bills of over £12. 00 spent to date on total restoration. most of which I think was carried out around 10 years ago as a guess. The garage did not date this work but details include - reconditioned gearbox fitted. new brake pipes. shoes. cables. most of the panels replaced and full respray. In 2007. brakes were overhauled completely. unleaded conversion. heater hoses replaced. other engine parts replaced. full service. 2008 cylinder head re-torqued. You would have to read through the history of work to get an idea of what's been done. The result is a Midget that looks great. turning heads wherever we've been and drives like a dream. The gearbox is smooth and the car pulls well through each gear.  
The paint shines and the car is rust free. There is one area which I should call attention to on the driver's side A-frame where some surface rust bubbles are coming through but this could be easily stripped and resprayed with relative ease. It's a small isolated area. See photo. All other panels are rust and dent free.  
Hard-top is included. but it needs inner lining and clasps. The hood is in great condition. Also included are the hood bag and tonneau cover. spare wheel. extendable wrench. Haynes Manual. drivers manual. V5 and service/work history.  
The cockpit of this Midget is a great place to be. You're so low to the ground. and with the wind in your hair. it feels like you're in a vintage race car. Moto-lita dished wood-rimmed steering wheel and aluminium boss. 'walnut' dash. walnut gear knob and pioneer speaker system. When you're holding the wheel and peering through the screen over the white bonnet. as you speed down a country road. there honestly are few places you'd rather be. and if the right girl is sitting next to you. well then. my friend. you have reached a fine point in your life indeed.  
It is sad to be selling but I honestly have not driven the Midge as much as it needs to be. I would like to see someone enjoy the Midge this summer for all its worth. As you know. this is a very affordable classic that demands respect wherever it goes. Very cheap to insure. It is such fun for the money I can't explain. It's been reliable to me on long journeys and I've had some great trips.  
If you have questions. please email me. I would recommend a viewing of the car. Car is in Westend. Southampton. Cash on collection and the car can be driven away.
