Lot 1911

Description:

1973 MG Midget
Reg. no. WVE 731L
Chassis no. GAN5-130867G
Engine no. 12V588FH-756
For 1961 MG revived the \'Midget\' name for their new small sports car, initially as a badge-engineered version of the Mk. II Austin-Healey Sprite and then with the Mk. III the Midget had evolved into the car we see here. The engine had grown to 1275cc and the body received numerous changes in line with regulation requirements; many consider the round-arch Midgets with chrome bumpers produced for model years 1972-74 to be the most desirable. Prior to current ownership, this MG had been dry stored for a few years and our vendor believes that the car has never been restored. The car appears to be in good all-round condition; we are told that there has been some welding done underneath, the engine has good oil pressure and it starts and runs well. Our vendor also tells us that the battery isn\'t that old and the tyres are all good; he does advise however that the car jumps out of second gear (a good second-hand gearbox accompanies the car). There is also a new clutch assembly complete with new thrust bearing (not fitted). Within the history file there are receipts supporting the parts purchased, a current MOT that expires at the end of June and a V5c.
