MG Midget RWA (1275cc) for sale (1974) For Sale

Against my better judgement, I am parting with my beloved 1974 MG Midget RWA with chrome bumpers and alloy wheels in above average condition... I have owned the car for 7 years and used it for summer excursions only in that time - two big trips: The Basque Coiuntry and The Outer Hebrides, but otherwise just days out around Southern England. It has served me incredibly well and I am loathe to part with it but with the arrival of my first son I'm simply not getting to use it anymore. I acquired the car from a polish gentleman who had bought it as a restoration project in 1998. He described the restoration as follows: "The restoration consisted of stripping it down to the bare chassis and then sand blasting. New floor pans, inner and outer sills, new jacking point members and repairs wherever required. ALl body panels were also sand blasted including the doors. Completely painted and under-sealed. Rebuilt with new suspension components, springs front and rear, wheel barings, ball joints, king-pins and bushes, discsm shoes and pads. The engine was rebuilt by the previous owner so I only fitted a lead free thread to it with a new clutch assembly, a 4 branch exhaust manifold and KN air filters. New carpets otherwise original interior and hood, both showing signs of their age now. Also some minor blemishes in the paintwork are also showing through over time hence the wording "partial restoration". Have the original steel wheel rims but I fitted the non standard Minilite type alloy wheels which I am always thought looked the part. I comopleted it by 2001 and ran it for a year. At that time the recorded mileage was 13469 (not verified but on the clock). I can cofnirm that I have numerous receipts even dating back to 1991 for the 2 previous owners. Interestingly the MOT failure certificate dated 2/8/93 had 13357 recorded so not many miles in nealry 20 years! (740 miles)". When I bought the car, it had down around 14,500 miles so I have driven it on average around 1000 miles a year since owning it. I love it dearly and am very sad to part with it. It is certainly not a perfect restoration model and needs some TLC - locks need looking at, could do with a new hood although I've got by fine with this one, there a one or two very small areas of paintwork blemishes that could easily be treated, one window handle needs replacing... but nothing serious and could all be done without much effort. The car runs beautifully as is. This could either be a full restoration project or a ready-to-drive lovable little seventies sports car. No time wasters please - serious interest only - we all have busy lives!
