Totally rebuilt around a new shell in 2006 and only 6,000 miles since; various upgrades; roll bar; excellent condition throughout
This stunning June 1972 ‘round arch’ chrome bumper Midget was given a total restoration between 2003 and 2006, the whole process documented in many invoices and a CD of photos on file. This included a brand new heritage body shell (which now cost over £10,600), new glass, a replacement interior and comprehensively overhauled mechanics with numerous sensible upgrades (fast road suspension bushes; Facet fuel pump; performance carbs; electronic ignition etc).
Painted in period Glacier White, it was given a set of Minilite-style wheels, Motolita steering wheel, new chrome and a stainless steel boot rack, the detailed restoration even going as far as fitting a discreet 12v socket for a sat nav. A new hood (beautifully installed by a professional trimmer) has more recently been fitted, the tonneau cover is also virtually new as is the sturdy roll bar.
Since the restoration was completed it has covered only 6,000 fine weather miles and remains in excellent condition throughout with an MOT until September 2021 and 12 past MOTs. As good an example as you will find, this tax-exempt Midget is on offer here at far less than it cost to restore
The Mk III Midget is one of the nicest small sports cars to drive and its 65bhp, well-matched gear ratios and light weight give it a lively performance. The wind-up windows and easy-up hood give it a little of the sophistication the earlier cars are lacking. This one is in tip-top condition and has to be an appealing car for anyone wanting a practical classic that is attractive, fun, and easy to live with.
