There are people who like the word ‘body off restoration’ – we got 1 word in reply: ‘original’. This MG Midget 1500 from 1977 is fully original – even first paint [except 1 door]. Of Course there’s signs of 43 years of use, however restoring such car should be considered a criminal act. We have tried to find rust or signs of welding or repairs – but in vain, NONE of it. The interior as well is completely original.
Although we can’t validate, we would not be surprised if the 52122 miles is the first time it’s on the odometer. A few personal, but original touches we’ve added – like a new soft top and period correct Minilite style wheels. We’ve changed fluids & fitted a new alternator. It has fresh APK [Dutch MOT] and a well known Dutch MG specialist has performed various other maintenance & fine tuning. So this MG Midget is good to go, for years to come.
Oh, before we forget, it’s European spec – i.e. SU Carburetors , no EGR adjustments. So no squeezed US performance.
