Description for MG Midget 1979

For sale is an exceptionally nice MG Midget MKIV Roadster with only 6,421 ORIGINAL miles. It sports the original British racing green with the tan interior. This is a one owner car and has lived most if its life in an airplane hangar after it was bought brand new 1979 which was the last year these cars were produced. The 1979 MKIV is powered by the 1493CC 4 cylinder engine from the Triumph Spitfire, paired with the Morris marina transmission featuring synchromesh on all 4 gears is capable of pushing this car along at 100MPH! With a 12 second 0 to 60 time and the ease of shifting with the fully synchronized transmission makes this a classic car that is a joy to drive, and keeps up with modern day speeds. The drivability of this car provides more options for cruising and trips that would be otherwise be limited by a speed restriction to the car. The car was rebuilt 10 years ago with new rubber bushings, lines, brakes, tires, fuel tank, the webber carburetor with electric choke conversion, pacesetter header and an electric fuel pump conversion to eliminate vapor locking in traffic on hot days. Newer top and tonneau cover. It also has a recent battrey. The car runs and drives absolutely perfectly and has always been stored indoors for the entirety of its life. All the gauges work as they should. This is a great opportunity for a collector to purchase one of the cleanest, low mileage, one owner MG Midgets with a phenomenal pedigree as the owner is ready to part with it after 41 years.
