Thanks for looking. but DEPOSIT NOW TAKEN. Similar good MGs always required though. so if you have anything. let me know!


For sale here we have a lovely fully restored. new shell. nbsp;1275cc round wheel arch Midget. finished in Cherry Red with a black original style pattern interior.

This car is one of two that were subject to a total nut and bolt rebuild using a new Heritage shell during 1992-94. The two cars were rebuilt by a doting father for his two daughters. and both cars were built to exactly the same spec. except for the colour. so if you prefer a brighter red. please have a look at my other ads for the Flame red example. This particular car has now covered just over 3000 dry miles in the following 20 years and is in as new condition.

A professional engineer by trade and a serious race car engineer as a hobby. the current owner has ensured the Midget has been rebuilt to exacting standards and has also added a few practical mods along the way too.

On the outside the bodywork speaks for itself. being a new shell it is totally rust free. arrow straight and has excellent panel gaps. something which was paid particular attention to. All the chrome work is either new or very good used. there are new wire wheels all round. new lights. new seals and there is a new superbly fitting hood. plus also a full tonneau. hood cover. nbsp;support bars. full tool kit and cotton "MG badged" indoor car cover.   

The body has also been "waxoyled to death" so everything has been treated. inside. outside and underneath. If the photo of the engine bay looks a little grubby its because that too has a film of clear waxoyl over all the bodywork to protect it.

In the cabin. it is standard '72 Midget. although in excellent condition. with a refinished dash. excellent seat covers. carpets and door panels. There is also the addition of additional easier to use heater controls. interior light. electric washers and a 12 volt accessory socket. The car also has fuel cut off and battery cut off switches and comes with a steering lock. so even the brightest of thieves would struggle to steal it!

Driving the car is a total pleasure. it quite literally feels like a new car with no squeaks or rattles. the engine sounding smooth and raspy from the stainless exhaust. The engine itself has been completely rebuilt to standard spec with the only deviation being a Metro A+ cam to give a little more power and a dump valve to stop it "running on" when turned off. All the drive train. suspension and brakes have also been completely rebuilt as a matter of course.

All in all a superb example and impossible to build yourself for the price. Plus don't forget if your preference is bright red. check out the other identical spec car I have!


The Midget is available to view night or day. seven days a week. in a dry well lit garage and viewing is strongly recommended!

Also I am always on the look out for good quality classic and sports cars. so if you have a car you wish to sell. or have sold for you I'll be happy to consider it. Feel free to send any pictures to sales@victoriasportscars. co. uk

Thanks for looking. Andy Hill 07900 904433
