MOT Expiry: November 2020

One of the British classic movement's staple cars. MG Midgets offer an affordable route into traditional sports car ownership and their simple mechanical make-up ensures reliability and for many owners, the satisfaction of easily carried out servicing and repairs. And, of course, there is good spares back-up. MPH is delighted to offer this 1972 example that is more unusual in being not only a round wheel arch model but one in black, with a black interior. Recently passing its MoT test, it displays 39,000 miles and has passed its MoT test just a matter of weeks ago. Tidy bodywork gets this Midget off to a flying start, the wheel arches, door bottoms, trailing edges of the rear wings and both front and rear valances being extremely tidy, straight and free from corrosion – the vendor says a rebuild saw the fitting of a new front wing, complete rear valance and repair sections fitted to the rear wings. Brightwork is crisp and sparkling and the Rostyle wheels well prepared. The engine bay is clean and tidy and hoses correct. Always regarded as intimate rather than spacious, the all-black interior has lasted very well. There is slight wear to the driver's side carpet, which otherwise is very presentable, as is the dashboard and the fascia. Seat facings show little sign of use and are unmarked: The door cards are very tidy. A great opportunity for anyone new to the classic scene, or anyone looking to downsize, MPH is delighted to offer this Midget.
