Excellent Investment opportunity to buy a WINTER BARGAIN

This little MG Midget has been owned by the same lady owner for the last 23 years and only had 5 previous owners in total. In 1993 the car was subject to an extensive restoration. A photographic record was kept which consists of around 100 individual photographs showing the works completed. The car was basically stripped back to a shell. At this point the Midget was also changed from brown to green.

A number of invoices for spare parts was kept over the years but nothing substantial. These include details of an oil cooler being fitted, new battery, new tyres, gaskets, seals and in 2010 an invoice for almost £300 for the Rebuilding of the Diff. A new Mohair hood was fitted some years ago (today costing somewhere in the region of £400).

A new fuel pump was fitted a number of weeks ago.

Over the last 23 years the car has, on average covered only 300 miles per year. However, it was always stored in a dry garage and has therefore has not suffered any structural corrosion.

The paintwork does look much better in the pictures than in real life. However, the preparation was all done well and its only the surface of the paint that shows some signs of small pin pricks etc.

Overall, a very presentable and useable car that is becoming more and more collectable. The value of these models are constantly increasing. A superb investment and something which can be used and enjoyed.

The Midget has a new MOT which expires in November 2017.
