1972 MG Midget

The name "Midget" was first used by MG in 1929 ascribed to the M Type, this being MG's first baby sports car based on the then newly released Morris Minor. Then came the first of the T Type Midgets, the TA in late 1936, culminating with the TF model of 1954. The modern MG Midget is a small two-seater sports car produced by MG from 1961 to 1979. It revived a name that had been used on earlier models.

If you have an affinity for British sports cars, and love tooling around the countryside with top down, buzzing through corners, flipping through gears, and pushing the limits of a car's suspension around curves, then this may be the consignment for you. We present a 1972 MG Midget, no rust, newer interior, rebuilt transmission car all wrapped up in a red respray with black rockers. Oh and don't bloody super-size me, keep it mini!

Exterior
Nice straight steel panels with well minded gaps are bolted on to a miniature frame, and adorned with shiny chrome bumpers and bezels for your visual enjoyment. Some red paint looking snazzy, is painted on to these panels giving a well-done aura to this car. A black rocker painting adds nice contrast to the red and goes with the black convertible top. This top is tear free and shows slight yellowing for the plastic windows. Pre "Sabrina" rubber crash bumpers, this car has thin bumpers in chrome with neatly small vertical bump bars on both sides of the grill...very tasteful. Headlight bezels surround round front lights and lower horizontal yellow orange turn signal lights. A black egg crate front grille is near perfect with a centered octagonal MG badge. Sparse but effective trimmings for the side mirrors, window surrounds and door handles, otherwise the car is showing the nice paint. On the back is another "Sabrina" free rear bumper, and large vertical taillights on either corner. A chromed luggage carrier rack seen on the boot lid. Sporty mag style red highlighted wide spoked wheels are on all 4 corners, and all have a black background.

Interior
Lowering the top and we see high back rounded styled buckets which are like new, and indeed they are replacements wrapped in black leather. These float in a sea of new black carpet with a central hump shift lever, and a small storage area behind the seats. The iconic MG dash top padded and crack free fronts the seats. The instrument cluster offers up plenty of Smiths gauges and toggles with warning lights to keep you busy, and a finger on the pulse of the mechanicals. In the center of the dash just above the hump, is an aftermarket digital AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth stereo. The original wide wood rimmed in mahogany steering wheel with a matching shifter knob topper, is jutting out from the dash and is in good condition, as are the original door panels also in black vinyl. A shout out to the trunk, which is showing in red paint, has a speaker panel added in and has the spare and jack neatly installed in this rust free environment.

Drivetrain
A flip of the bonnet and a fully restored engine bay greets us, and is looking cracking. Nice detailing throughout with shiny chrome side draft air filter carb covers, and more of the exterior paint and polished aluminum throughout. She's a BMC Austin A-series 1275cc 4-cylinder and is fed by a single 2bbl carb and features overhead valves. On the back is a 4-speed manual transmission pushing power rearward to a 3.90 rear axle. Small but mighty.

Undercarriage
Underneath we note some surface rust, on suspension parts and the edges of the unibody where the floor pans and rockers meet. Front disc brakes are on with drums in the rear and the exhaust has a glasspack style muffler.

Drive-Ability
This car started with ease, and rolled effortlessly over to the Classic Auto Mall test track. Here it performed very nicely with some power coming from the engine and those dual SU's. Good acceleration, smooth shifting, and very snappy handling, with straight bias free panic braking. An overall good experience especially with the top down.

A fun car restored to a nice quality and state as it presents now. Good interior, and very nice engine bay looking very smart. Red paint with some black accenting on the lowers, and shiny chrome trimmings throughout. No rust on the exterior, and it's a convertible. This mini definitely provides maximum enjoyment in a mini package. SO, I guess good things do come in small packages?!
