£ 0

This is a two owner 50,000 miles, matching numbers, Frogeye Sprite in the rare colour of Whitehall Nevada Beige. Taken off the road in 1964 the car sat in the first owners garage until purchased by the second owner in 2012. All steel and original registration number.

 Peter Ellis Healey restorations then carried out a fully detailed bare shell restoration completed in 2014 and only 60 miles since.

Peter Ellis found very little rust and any that was found was cut out and replaced including both spring hanger boxes. Peter did remark that it was the best condition  Frogeye he had seen before restoration. The body shell was shot blasted before being completely rebuilt with a full photo record.

The engine was stripped and found to be in remarkably good condition, it was then fully rebuilt including an unleaded cylinder head. The gearbox was an goldseal replacement with its original BMC label.

All others parts were restored or replaced with new.

A British Motor Heritage certificate confirms chassis and engine number, original colour etc.  The original fitted xtras were the front bumper, heater and washers.

Now fully restored and in showroom condition the history and originality increases this Sprite's investment value.

MODERN CARS CONSIDERED IN PART EXCHANGE

Warranties


Mechanical insurance based warranties offered by many garages offer a very limited cover on MG's of this age. They also only cover mechanical breakdown ie: the part must break rather than fail through wear and tear, which is usually the case on cars of this age. They have so many exclusions and clauses in the small print that making a successful claim is very rare, therefore I do not use them. Please be aware that they are old cars and as such can and will go wrong, it is very difficult to predict the where and when.

On Midgets costing over £5000 I do offer 3 months/3,000 mile (which ever is sooner) warranty on mechanical and electrical parts that might go wrong (cars in the UK only), I will also give a significant discount on labour during this period.

All Midgets costing over £5000 will have a full service and a new MOT (unless at least 8 months remaining)

This is a very reputable specialist insurance company called Lancaster  and have 'agreed valuations' so well worth a try.

 

 

 

HPI CAR CHECK

All cars are checked with HPI Equifax, this is to confirm the following:-

Stolen Vehicles: a check is made with any vehicles reported to the Police as stolen or missing.

Condition alert: Warns if the vehicle has been subject to a total loss claim i.e. written off because of damage, or because it has been stolen and not recovered.

Outstanding finance: checks with finance houses to see if vehicle is on finance. Some 5 million vehicles are on this register.

Security watch: Certain vehicles that are at risk from theft or fraud are registered with HPI.

VIN match: a cross reference between the chassis number and the registration number to ensure they match.

Vehicle identity: to confirm make, model, colour, engine-size and number, door-plan, fuel-type and transmission for all vehicles registered at the DVLA.

Plate Transfer: tells if the vehicle has had a number plate change registered at the DVLA since April 1990, if it has a check is made on all associated registration numbers to ensure there is no hidden history.

A copy of these checks will be shown to you and then given to you on purchase of the car.

I welcome any inspection on my Midgets before you buy and if you are unhappy with the car for any reason after purchase I do offer a 14 day refund policy. Return the car to me in the same condition and I will give you a full refund. (see note below)

All the above cars can be fitted with wire wheels if required. Please ask for costings.

HOW MUCH!     Some people ask why my cars are so expensive, well go and look at the other 'cheaper' cars and you will see why.  My prices aren't over the top when you consider their condition, and that most have had more than the asking price spent on them. They are good value at around a third cheaper than MGB Roadsters. The cost of restoring a car is more than its market value.  My prices are determined by the law of supply and demand, as I have no problem selling them then I know and so do my customers that the price is right.  If I had lots of cars in stock then I would know my prices were higher than the market price.   I have sold many Spridgets for less than private sellers ask.   Most private sellers give an exaggerated description of their own cars either deliberately or because they remember their own car in better times and have not thoroughly examined their car for some time.  For every ten cars I see I only actually buy one of them.  It can be so annoying traveling a long distance to view miss-described cars, you try it and add up the time, petrol etc involved. YOU REALLY DO GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

Other cars are sometimes available so please telephone with your requirements and for a chat as I do know of cars that are due in before this website gets updated.

To view any of these cars please telephone for an appointment  9am to 9pm 7 days a week.

Please don't just turn up without ringing first. Thank you.

Due to recent abuse of my refund policy I am forced to deduct a £35+VAT per day 'hire charge' from the purchase price refunded.

1970/H MG Midget MkIII in Clacier White


SORRY NOW SOLD

SOLD

One owner since 1972! Genuine 62,000 miles from new. The owner purchased this lovely Midget in January 1972 from a local garage in Reading, it was 18 months old at the time and has been sparingly used ever since. Black Interior which is all original apart from a replacement carpet set and smaller steering wheel. During the 1980s the owners son who worked for Associated engineering (they supplied MG engine parts) totally rebuilt the engine to a fast road specification and fitted a LCB manifold and Webber carb. the body was refurbished around the same time but remarkably little rust was found, the rear quarter panels were replaced and the car repainted. The car still retains its original sills and floors which are still amazingly good. There are small superficial marks on the body but its very presentable and retains all its factory panel gaps. It could perhaps benefit from some detailing to the engine bay and other parts but is a great car to use and improve as you go. Drives extremely well and will be a very unusual Midget with its history and low mileage. We have just given it a full service and check over.

Advertised on behalf of the current owner who states: 'Car has had four previous owners. The total mileage is 22,100. from new. The car is completely unrestored and has never had any welding or body work done, nor does it need any. The Austin Diary and Log Book is really quite charming, describing when it was bought, and where from (Skinners of Hastings), it also describes various journeys and the amount of fuel used. It still has the dealers supplying sticker on inside of doors. It comes complete with original hard top, soft top, tonneau cover with side screens. My sister has owned it since 1999, during which time it has covered approximately 600 miles, and during this period has been kept in an air flow chamber. I have just remembered that the diary also describes when the car went for a photograpy session for the book "Original Sprite and Midget" by Terry Horler. All is as original inside - including the rubber mats which are in very good condition. Obviously, the engine is the original. This car is exactly as it came off the production line in 1959, in supurlative order. Could be a show car with a little detailing under the bonnet.' Extemely rare to find in this condition! Please call me to arrange viewing at current owners home in the New Forest.

MG Midget MkII In Riviera Blue SORRY SOLD

New 12 Months MOT Tax Free

SOLD

This Midget has covered a remarkable 37,000 documented miles in its 50 year life!

Bought new by a Mrs De Beer from Torquay she used it once a week for local shopping and visit to a local beach. After her 30 years of ownership it had only covered 6,000 miles!

The next lady owner covered another 20,000 miles before the next gentleman entrusted Bromsgrove MG Centre to carry out a full restoration. On stripping to a bare body shell very little rust was found, testament to rust proofing from new and the careful use. Any rust was professionally dealt with and the car still retains the vast majority of its original panels. All others parts were inspected and carefully restored before being put back.

Brakes and suspension was were renewed for obvious safety reasons.

Seats, carpets and trim were completely renewed while out and the chrome all replated. The Hood has recently been replaced and there is a full Tonneau. The engine has been rebuilt and runs on unleaded. All the old wire wheels were replaced with new ones.

A stainless steel boot rack along with a oil cooler has been fitted.

All documented and with a large amount of photos in its large history file.
