I am selling my MG Midget after 23 years of ownership.  It is a fun car to drive. and turns heads everywhere we go.  She loves opening up out on country roads.
The car has clean title and current Texas license and inspection.  I can supply complete work records back to 1993 - email me for a copy.  
It got a frame-off restoration in 1995-96. and has been well maintained since (e. g. new wiring. new steering rack. new gas tank & lines. etc. ).  It has been stored under a carport during my entire ownership.  
The buyer will also get a matched pair of Midget doors. a Moss header kit that will fit with the Weber. and a new spare water pump.  It also comes with the original tonneau cover (needs new zipper) and top boot (in good condition)
Major upgrades:  Weber 45DCOE carburetor;  70 amp alternator;  Spax rear shock kit;  Battery & fuel pump shut-off switches in cockpit;  Upgraded radio box with vacuum guage. voltmeter (installed but not wired in). and USB charging ports in place of cig lighter.
Recent work:  Transmission rebuild in 2007.  Motor rebuild in 2009.  New clutch was installed in 2015.  This work was all done by Shimek Automotive in Austin.  
Top and tires are less than 2 years old; front brakes & master cylinder rebuilt in 2013;  New A-arms and front end rebushed in 2014/2015.  
What it needs:  There is rust on in the passenger door skin (it predates my ownership. and is not very noticeable);  The interior is mostly original - I replaced the seat cushions. installed a dash coverlay and added carpet in 1994-95. but it's time again for refreshing (I'm leaving that to the next owner. )  The top frame has been patched at several points and is serviceable.
What it would really like:  Mallory distributor (now running with original unit & Ignitor setup);  header unit installed;  5-speed overdrive;  a spin on a dyno to finetune the Weber.
