CLASSIC 1977 MG MIDGET ROADSTER SOLID RUST FREE TX CONVERTIBLE 47K ORIG for sale
Solid. rust-free 1977 MG Midget convertible. All stock and original roadster. with 47K original miles. It spent most of its life as a traveler behind a large Motorhome. thus the fairly low miles ( even for an MG~!). This is a very straight. unrestored roadster that has lived in the West all of its life.
This MG starts right up and runs well. It has the sturdy. gas-sipping 1. 5L 4 cylinder engine. which runs very smooth. as it should. No changes or alterations from stock condition other than a carburetor upgrade to a 2V WEBER. a fresh set of new Radial tires mounted on its original Rostyle wheels. a new battery and a rebuilt alternator and a starter. There are NO internal engine noises. knocks. fluid nor exhaust leaks. It is a two-owner vehicle.
It is completely original and unrestored. except for a re-spray once in the last ten years. This classy MG Midget still retains all of its British character; NO goobered-up "race car" wishfulness. nbsp;a "project" collection of boxes. nbsp;foreign engine swaps or other devaluating alterations.
The body is extremely straight. with NO dents or damage. There is a crease on the finish on the front bonnet. as pictured. The finish is still very shinny throughout the whole car.
Most importantly than anything else. it has a SOLID chassis. rust-free. as well as floorboards. trunk area and body panels.
The interior has held up very well taking into consideration its age. Nice. clean original MG upholstery kit still looks great after all these years. Its original carpeting is nice and clean. with no wear spots or damage. The center of the dash pad has one crack as pictured. Door panels and rear stowage area are also nice and clean. No missing knobs. buttons or accessories. Its original convertible top is sound but has three small cuts on it ( Tops are inexpensive and easy to source on Ebay. for less than $200 brand-new).
Overall. an old classic MG roadster with gentle use. in better than average unrestored condition. and without the exhorbitant asking price of someone else's restoration. Fun English character for a modest opening bid and no reserve. CLEAR TX title.
I still have its custom Tow-bar available ( included with the car FREE if desired). Feel free to EM or call with questions or inquiries at (650) 430-4660. no later than 9pm PST. please.
* Please note. I reserve the right to end this listing early at any time. if a serious offer to purchase or a buy-it-now presents itself. ( In my own experience. serious buyers usually do not wish to engage in an all-out bidding war with another prospective buyer -myself included. when I have purchased a vehicle or an item on Ebay- and prefer to conduct a discreet direct exchange. That being the case. you are certainly welcome to contact me directly via EM or at the telephone number noted in the listing.
I Shall be glad to assist with NATIONWIDE or OVERSEAS delivery at the most economical shipping rate available. I can make all arrangements from here and do all coordination. and you pay the transporter cost directly to the shipper upon receipt of the car.
Should you be the winning bidder. I would like to receive payment within THREE business days. please. Cashiers check or Bank draft are preferred. Personal. business or annuity checks may be utilized. but must clear funds source prior to any transportation arrangements being made. Another option is a Bank wire transfer to our local CHASE Bank branch here in town. That expedites the process considerably and allows for faster shipping arrangements.
Upon receipt of payment. I will overnight the title. registration card and Bill of Sale to the winning bidder.
Thank you for your interest~!
