1969 MG Midget MK III 1275cc. Tartan red with black upholstery and a black hood and red factory style hard top. Essentially a slightly more expensive badge-engineered version of the Austin-Healey Sprite MkII, the MG Midget was launched in 1961, initially with a 948cc twin carb A-Series engine producing 46bhp.
In 1962 the engine was uprated to a 1,098cc unit now with 56bhp and brake discs replaced the drums at the front. With the launch of the MkIII version in 1966, the engine was enlarged yet again to 1,275cc and now produced 67bhp. The rear axle ratio was also increased for more relaxed cruising along with a host of minor revisions to the interior and exterior, including more rounded rear wheel arches from 1972.
Eminently tuneable, the MkIII is now particularly popular in the many race series that are organised for MG Midgets to compete in. On the road it is an exhilarating car to drive as you always feel like you are going twice as fast as you really are!
Dating from March 1969, this Tartan Red MkIII is one of those modified cars with numerous sporting touches including a tuned engine with larger twin SU carbs (hence the bulge in the bonnet), full-flow exhaust manifold, front and rear bumpers removed, rounded rear arches, sports steering wheel and works-type hard top. It rides on a set of sporty wire wheels with good tyres (including the spare). Recently fitted with new carpets, it also comes with a soft top and a tonneau cover.
It has been in the current ownership since 2007 but has been more polished than driven in recent times, 10 old MOTs showing that it has only covered around 1,200 miles in the last 10 years. Starting promptly and running nicely as we drove it to take the pictures, it has a pleasingly fruity exhaust note and is in very good order throughout. We have a nice history folder with the car containing some bills and invoices, old mot's and owners handbooks. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
