1974 MG Midget for sale
A perfect father-daughter project for the Fall! Drive it while you work on it. 1275 motor and 4 speed manual. Starts on first crank every time. This car drives as a Midget should. Factory color was Aconite purple. Now flat purple exterior in rat rod style. Car was rescued from a barn with 55k miles showing. I titled. registered and have enjoyed driving this car for three years. A running journal of things done to the car gives full documentation of everything done to bring the car back to driver status. The car is safe. and comfortable to drive. Front bra and top boot of black vinyl come with the car. but stitching has come undone. A car cover from Victoria British comes with the vehicle.
What it needs to be better--
Rebuild the front suspension. Full rebuild kits are available for about $150. I have most of the major parts (spring pans. kingpins. tie rods. springs) to do a proper job. The car tracks straight and has not caused me any concern. but I don't push the car into turns like most people would. I have a factory anti-sway bar to add with new bushings.
1st gear (non-synchro. straight cut. "granny low" gear) requires holding the lever before upshifting to second. So a good. useable ribcase transmission comes with the sale. As any knowledgable Spridget owner knows. first gear is not needed to enjoy these cars at speed.
There is no rust through on this car affecting it structurally but there are a few tiny rust spots peeking through. The A pillar on the passenger side should be repaired by a qualified welder or body man. I have replacement panels for the cowl and a primed and ready hood to go on the car.
I have a straight 1974 front bumper. valance. hardware and brackets to bring it back to original.
CHECK MY FEEDBACK AND BID WITH CONFIDENCE. Reasonable offers will be entertained and the car is for sale locally. Local pick up south of Nashville. Tennessee only. I can hold the car for a while in covered storage but a deposit of $500 is due immediately upon the conclusion of the auction. This Midget is drivable and safe. but please be prepared to tow any great distance.
