MG Midget MkIII 1275cc in Artic White.

1275cc engine and wire wheels.
£11,750

Major bare shell restoration completed 2019 and only 50 dry miles since.

This Midget had previously been dry stored for over 30 years until the last owner bought the car and stripped it to the bare shell and made up a rotisserie so he had good access to replace the floors, sills etc. This is all recorded in a photo album.

Once the body was restored he rebuilt the engine and gearbox.

The car was then built back up with new suspension and all new brakes including copper brake pipes new calipers, discs and pads. New rear wheel cylinders and shoes, new brake and clutch master cylinders.

New fuel lines, new fuel pump. Carburettors rebuild with new parts. The interior was fitted with new carpets, a new trim set and the seats recovered. The dashboard was repainted and a new hood was fitted.

This Midget is an original wire wheel car rather than the modern bolt on hubs, the wheels were shot blasted and powder coated and had five new tyres fitted. The Chrome bumpers front and rear were replaced with new.

Finally some period Black and White number plates fitted along with a new Wood rimmed steering wheel.

Only used for a couple of shows last summer and just 50 miles since completion.

Now ready for a new owner to show and enjoy driving this Midget at a fraction of the restoration costs.

We will carry out a voluntary new MOT so you have peace of mind and it will have a full pre sales check in our workshop.

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 £7000 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 £7000 will have a full service and a new MOT (unless at least 8 months remaining)

For MG Midgets for sale please check the cars for sale page.


CLASSIC CAR INSURANCE

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 07703 465225 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!

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.

For sale on behalf of the current owner who describes this Midget as:-

'The car I bought had been reshelled in 2000 into a ZIebarted shell. This is a corrosion inhibitor treatment that is fed into the cavities and there are a number of zones on the car where you can see the Ziebart markers. This means the shell will not rot'

The previous keeper owned this car for 42 years!  Taken off the road in 1985 due to the rusty sills and carefully stored it’s been extensively restored and is now back ready to be used and loved by its next keeper. Showing 75,000 miles on the speedo which could well be genuine as it was only used for 11 years.
