Reluctant sale of a stunning 1964 Riviera Blue MG Midget Mk II with excellent provenance. in remarkably original condition.
This fast-appreciating classic has had just one previous owner from new. and has an agreed insurance valuation of £9. 00.
A real head-turner. it has always been garaged and it is believed all the panels are original. It is unmolested and is a joy to drive with the lively free-revving 1098cc engine (excellent oil pressure both cold and hot). and slick gear-change. Completely reliable throughout my ownership. it always starts with the first turn of the key and feels extremely taut on the road. I have just had it serviced and tuned and am only selling because I have a young family. and it is not getting the use it deserves.
In my ownership it has benefited from:
a light bodywork/paint restoration (strip down and ‘engine out' respray) in 2012. fully documented with photos 
unleaded head conversion
new superior quality hood
new full carpet set
stainless steel exhaust system
four new tyres
new leaf springs
period-correct 1960s Radiomobile radio (and speakers). converted to FM with aux socket for MP3/I-pod
new clutch slave cylinder
new battery
new fuel pump
regular servicing by a classic car specialistregular waxoyling

The car comes with a full tonneau cover/original tonneau frame. some history and all receipts for work carried out through my ownership.   I have kept the car as original as possible and it still has its original (and now rare) steering wheel. There is little/no evidence of welding.
Tax exempt (historic vehicle) and very low insurance. MOT valid till February 2017.  
These early Midgets are highly desirable. full of character and becoming scarcer. This is a beautiful British sports-car classic which has been well looked-after. is huge fun to drive. inexpensive to run. and likely to increase in value.
The car is located in St Ives. Cornwall. Viewing is essential and I will not sell to anyone who has not at least viewed the car. Deposit of £300 by cash or transfer required to end the listing. with payment in full  by cash or transfer within 7 days.
More pictures and information available on request. Thanks for looking.
