With the popularity of track days, this well prepared Midget represents a cost effective way to be competitive from the get go. The previous owner has spent time and money on all the right bits including a quality roll bar, race seats and harnesses as well as a rolling road session to ensure that the car is in perfect tune.

More recently, we have refreshed the steering and brakes together with replacement rear springs. Despite being exempt, we have also has the car independently MoT tested.

On the button and ready to go, the car is ideal for fast road use, sprints, hill climbs or the track - great fun.

Available to view in our dry, well lit showroom by appointment.

Bodywork

Remarkably well preserved, the bodywork is in excellent  shape with good panel fit and no untoward signs of corrosion.

Mechanical

Recently refreshed, this peppy performer runs and drives extremely well and benefits from a suspension and steering overhaul to ensure that it drives and handles as it should, the rolling road sessions proved beneficial yielding an extra 15 bhp. 

Exterior

Given the history of the car, the body and paintwork are in great shape with bright glossy paintwork and no issues. There is no front bumper fitted but all remaining trim is in good condition, the removable hardtop is a quality works style item.

Interior

Best described as basic, the car is not currently fitted with carpets so the driving experience is engrossing, the competition seats hug you closely whilst you are strapped in with the FIA approved harness'. 

 

Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.
