About the object

1972 MG Midget Registration number: GFW 667K Date of first registration: 23 06 1972 VIN number: GAN51214995G Engine number: H4279 MOT expires: Currently SORN V5C present listing 6 former keepers Current mileage shown: 74,931 1275 cc Yellow The MG Midget was originally based upon the successful Austin Healey (Frog Eye) Sprite but with significant body changes and similar Sprite versions continued alongside to 1971. During its life significant changes occurred including engine capacities rising from 948cc to 1493cc, with the most controversial being the 1500. We are happy to offer a very clean example of this MK.111 Midget. Powered by the successful 1275cc unit giving the car a very sprightly performance. For this model the square-shaped rear wheel arches became rounded in January 1972. Also in this year, a Triumph steering rack was fitted, giving a gearing that was somewhat lower than earlier Midgets. GFW 667K has been in long term, lady ownership since 1983 and was the result of a full and comprehensive restoration in 2007 by the current owner. Invoices in the history file point to body and some mechanical refurbishment including, brakes, clutch and electrical works . The shell was stripped, repaired where necessary and built up with etch primer. Accompanying the MG is a photographic file showing evidence of the restoration and respray, finished in Striking yellow with period Rostyle wheels, clean trim and hood. Condition can be described as excellent with the car maintaining much originality but not suffering from the usual body issues many like examples currently on the market. A delightful and well cared for, round arch Midget from long term ownership. Buyer's premium of 12% inclusive of VAT @ 20% Condition Report: .
