MG MIDGET 1275 Round Wheel Arch 1972

vehicle overview

1972 MG Midget MK III. 1275cc. Tartan red with black upholstery and a black hood. This stunning red example dates from August 1972 and comes with a huge file of invoices going back almost 25 years to show regular maintenance and improvements during this time. Virtually every single part of the car appears to have been rebuilt or replaced at some point and it is impossible to cover everything here. To highlight just a few of the major works: bodywork restored and repainted in 2003/06; new brakes and suspension in 2004/05; major mechanical overhaul and new wiring loom in 2009; endless new trim items in 2010; unleaded head in 2011; gearbox rebuild, new clutch kit and work to the front suspension in 2012. You only need to look at the car to see that all the work has been done to a high standard and a cursory glimpse at the underside is equally reassuring. It really does look like a new pin with sparkling paintwork and an interior that still looks almost showroom fresh. Apart from the vast pile of bills, other documentation includes many old MOTs back to 1992, an original owner’s handbook, parts catalogues. Running beautifully as we took the car for photographs, this is a peach of a car in all respects. It now just needs a new owner who can reap the benefits of all that hard work during this coming summer, and no doubt for many summers yet to come. We will also apply a fresh MOT upon sale. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and viewing is highly recommended. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
