West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional example of this rare custom restored beautiful original California 1967 MGB Midget Mark II 1275cc Convertible with its original California 'Black License' plates and recently fully custom restored in a truly striking 'Maroon Red Metallic' color paint with an equally striking interior of beautifully upholstered Black seats with Red piping and Black carpets. a new black soft top and highly desirable chrome wire wheels!
The car recently received a full custom restoration at an expense of over $24K with a gorgeous new Custom Maroon Red Metallic Paint. a rebuilt 1275cc engine with all parts associated. new drive train and transmission. new cloth top. new chrome wire wheels. new glass windshield. new leather interior. new stereo system. new high performance tires and new brakes! Only some 200 miles driven since the rebuild!
The MG Midget was a small two-seater sports car produced by the MG division of the British Motor Corporation from 1961-79. The Mark I first generation (1961-64) was essentially a slightly more expensive badge-engineered version of the Austin-Healey Sprite MKII and the engine was a 948 cc A-Series with twin SU carburettors producing 46 hp. The car had a hard top. heater. radio and luggage rack available as factory-fitted extras. In late 1962 the engine was increased to 1098 cc. raising the output to 56 hp and disc brakes replaced the drums at the front. Wire spoked wheels also became available. The first generation doors had no external handles or locks and the windows were sliding Perspex side-screens. An original generation car with the 948 cc engine was tested by the British magazine 'The Motor' in 1962 and reportedly amazingly had a top speed of over 87mph. The Mark II (1964-66) gained wind-up windows. swivelling quarter lights. external handles and separate locks. The windscreen also gained a slight curvature and was retained in a more substantial frame. The Mark III (1966-74) engine now grew to an even more sporty and very fast 1275 cc using the development seen on the legendary Mini-Cooper 'S' and the marque began a legendary reputation for racing. Sadly for the last generation. the 1500 MG Midget (1974-80). oversized rubber bumpers were added to the chrome bumpers to meet the first US bumper impact regulations.
This is obviously one very rare and highly desirable example of this classic British sports car - a recently completely custom restored and accident free example of the legendary chrome bumper Mark III MG Midget with a 1275cc engine! Over $24K has been invested in this high class restoration with only 200 miles driven since finished. The trunk. floor boards. rocker panels and all the typically rust prone areas are all completely solid and rust free - an obviously always garaged California example and the engine with all associated parts including the drive train and transmission have been rebuilt. The chrome is all new. there is no sloppy panel alignment and the body is impressively straight all around. The car has new chrome wire wheels. a new cloth soft top. new glass windshield. all new interior. new high performance tires and all new brakes! Please note that the car has an upgraded with a higher amperage alternator from its original factory generator and the heater core and box were removed to make way for the larger 12 Volt battery and its associated dash pull levers were also removed during the restoration and not replaced.
The 'Maroon Red Metallic' color paint is very striking indeed and virtually flawless and quite obviously painted professionally with no expense spared! The interior is also virtually flawless with beautiful new Black Leather seats with Red piping and new carpets. a lovely sports steering wheel and wooden stick shift lever and original and still quite lovely 'Smiths' gauges to enhance its old world flavor. The soft top is also new with a crystal clear rear window. The chromed wire wheels are also new as are the chrome bumpers and grille. Please note that the desire to increase the car's electrical system's capabilities and to maximize performance was the reason the car's heater core/box has been removed by the previous owner to make room for the new battery and alternator.
This car truly has to be seen to be appreciated and driven to be believed - drives like it must have when brand new! The powerful 1275cc engine purrs quietly under the hood and the 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through the gears - an absolute pleasure to drive!
Without a doubt you will look long and hard to find a finer example of this rare piece of British motoring history - a rare fully custom restored original California 'Black license plate' MG Midget and perfect for the MG enthusiast. timely and prescient Micro-Car enthusiast/investor or collector or obviously any classic British car collector!
