First introduced by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) at Monte
Carlo on 20th May 1958 and intended as a low-cost model. the Sprite
was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company which received a
royalty payment from the manufacturers BMC. The low cost of £669
was achieved by using a mildly tuned version of the A Series engine
and as many other components from existing cars as possible.
Manufactured at the MG sports car factory at Abingdon. it was not
surprising that the success of the design would lead to an MG
version. which was known as the Midget. In 1969 a 'British Leyland'
makeover was applied to the Sprite. consisting of matt black paint
on the sills. Rostyle wheels and a plastic front grill. In 1974. to
meet US federal regulations. large black plastic bumpers were added
to the front and rear and the ride height was increased; an
anti-roll bar was added to help with the higher centre of gravity.
The A-Series engine was replaced by the 1493cc unit from the
Triumph Spitfire. The last car was manufactured on 7th December
1979. after 73. 99 of the final version had been produced.

This 1980 MG Midget Mk. IV (1500cc) has just been the subject of
