MG MIDGET Fireglow Red (OPEN TO OFFERS) For Sale (1978)
1978 MG Midget in Fireglow Red. 1497cc.
With 11 months MOT and I will put 5 months Tax.
This is a solid very good example of the 1500 Midget. I have tried to keep it as original as possible to the day it was made, with a few exceptions, like adding a Radio/CD player and speakers.
The Engine sounds and runs like a dream. It never overheats, even if sitting idling for a long time in traffic jams. Oil pressure is excellent, with no leaks. The twin carburetas were overhauled and cleaned last year, along with a full service, which while it was in the garage had a new clutch, Brake discs, callipers and pads. Not the cheap variety either.
Like most MG owners I have looked after this car carefully, and spared no expense in keeping her on the road. I have receipts for all the work carried out, including recently adding new heat shields, engine mountings, suspension straps.
As you can see from the pictures this little MG looks fantastic and is a real head turner. On top of that it's a joy to drive, once you get use to having no ABS, power steering and other things you would expect from older cars.
The car comes with full and half tonneau, spare steering wheel, new brake shoes for the rear, Midget Haynes manual, spare wheel and jack.
I wouldn't want anyone to buy one of my cars, only to be disappointed or find faults that I havent told them about.
MOT advisorys were very slight play on nearside wheel baring, Corrosion to the leading edge of front passenger floor plan.
The small side plastic window on the hood as come away from the seam. Might be able to be repaired, however it may need a new hood. However, they can be picked up and fitted quite cheaply
The vehicle is located near to Somerton in Somerset. Viewings are welcome any time, feel free to bring along a mechanic and give her a good look over. I have no problems with that because I know what a fantastic car this is.
I am open to sensible offers.
