Hi and welcome to my auction of my lovely MG Midget. I bought this last year on a whim. I have normally had MGBs but saw this with a genuine history and thought right colour right condition but didn't check for size!! I am a 62 yr old who has put on a "little" weight and find it difficult to enter or exit with dignity. Not so bad with the roof off but alongside a high curb with the top up and it was so embarrassing; This coupled with having other projects means she has to go (apparently);enough of me.
When I bought her the bonnet had a bad case of flaking but o/wise she was as is. The sprayer found out (to his cost) that the top coat had been put on before the primer was dry which is what caused the flaking. The other paintwork that could do with attention is around the back of the hood (see pic 12) I also wasn't happy with the cooling so she has had a new radiator. thermostat and housing and a squeaking dynamo has been replaced with a shiny new alternator. so that she is far more practical.  
At the same time. for the MOT she had wheel bearings checked/ replaced and n/s bottom fulcrum and bits and bobs done. The head is still leaded so I use an additive.  
I have a good history of the car that came with her including photos of bare metal respray at 52000 miles  which according to the MOT history makes it sometime 2003/2004. At the same time she had a new hood. with zip out back window; hood cover and comes with a tonneau cover; LGB manifold and K&N filters.  
She runs very well with good oil pressure and is a joy through on the a roads of Wales. it is lovely to leave boy racers in hot hatches way behind as soon as the roads get a little twisty.  If I was keeping her a winter job would be perhaps new shocks to make her even more glue like to the road.
I have advertised her via a local classic car forum for £4500 ovno so I might remove her. Other than that you bid to buy. not haggle; Contact to be made within 24hrs to arrange deposit/collection ( I do know a good delivery man who is very reasonable if you would want a quote). Less than 10 feedback please e-mail before bidding. Deposit via paypal and rest cash on collection or bank transfer. Thanks
