1971 MG Midget for Sale 1971 MG Midget Restored w/5-Speed & Performance Upgrades . please be patient while the many photos load. Stunning 1971 MG Midget for sale in Sonoma California. Purchased by one of my friends who was so excited to get it but so sad when he first tried to get into the car and realized there was no way that he'd fit! So he asked me to put it up for sale to another appreciative collector whom may actually fit in the car! This 1971 MG Midget has had less than 1. 00 miles added to its lifetime 85k total since completion of a 2008 restoration. Built with autocross and fast road use in mind. the car remains matching numbers and runs a built. 1293cc A-series. Nissan 5-speed gearbox. upgraded suspension and more detailed below. Roughly $23. 00 in receipts document maintenance and refurbishment. including a fully stripped and rust-repaired body. The car is now completely corrosion free. sorted and ready to drive. Purchased by the seller in 1982. it was driven regularly before being disassembled for restoration. Other commitments delayed the project for several years. with work beginning in earnest in 1999. Body and paint were completed by Brooklands British Car in Tacoma. Washington. with the remainder of assembly done at the seller's home over a several year period. An unrestored. factory hardtop is included. and the car rides on 72 spoke 4. 5" wide wire wheels including a spare. Bumpers have been re-chromed. The interior is clean and remains largely stock with original seats and steering wheel. Reproduction carpets. door panels. and a re-covered dash complete the tidy appearance. Instruments remain fully factory and are in good working order. and Willans four point harnesses secure both driver and passenger. The soft top and frame are included but need work. and though a new tonneau. tonneau bag and vent window rubber are included they are not currently installed. The tonneau in particular will need modification. as it does not accommodate the roll bar. Engine specs include a large valve APT head. Kent 276 cam. roller rockers. Romac harmonic balancer. ARP fasteners throughout. APT lifters. Aldon distributor. Maniflow intake with standard 1 1/4 SU carbs. LCB header (both manifolds Jet-Hot coated) and APT exhaust. An alloy rocker cover dresses things up. while an engine stabilizer bar and balanced driveshaft reduce driveline harshness. Suspension consists of Frontline Spridget front and rear upgrades (link is for front components. see menu for rears as well). while brakes run new discs. rebuilt calipers and new hydraulic cylinders. Spare and unused original parts include a Speedwell baffled high-capacity oil pan (needs seal mount brazed). original 48 spoke wheels. rebuilt factory transmission. original head (also rebuilt). an extra block and crank. headlight relay kit. transmission reverse light switch kit. HIF6 (1 3/4) carburetor and manifold. stock driveshaft. original suspension components. wiring harness and distributor. Documentation includes a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate and aforementioned receipts. The seller recommends replacing the center wiper gearbox due to an incorrect ratio. re-centering the steering wheel. refurbishing the hardtop and adjusting hood alignment. though the car is in good running and driving order as-is.
