Description for MG Midget 1971

For sale is my 1971 MG Midget Mk III. It has the original factory-installed 1. 3L inline-4 cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission. It is a soft-top convertible with leather seats and chrome bumpers / rear rack. The VIN is: GAN5UB104219G and decodes as follows: G for MG. A for A-series-1. 3L engine. N for 2-seat roadster. 5 for Mk III body generation. U for USA market / left-hand drive. B for second year of the body style - model year 1971. It is in amazing original condition for this part of the country and has only had 3 or 4 owners in the nearly 45 years since it was manufactured. There are 43. 31 original miles on the odometer and the body / engine condition support that. It is used and has been in garage storage since late 1987 / early 1988 - approximately 27 years. The body is in excellent condition with very little to surface ONLY rust. The bottoms of the doors and fenders are solid. The engine runs on carb spray / small amount of fuel in the carb. but I have not filled the fuel tank with any fuel and run it for extended periods due to storage concerns. The tires are nearly-new as far as tread is concerned. but I would replace them in the process of a restoration. The brake pedal is soft. so I know it will need brake work. I have not seen any leak or drip areas underneath it with full fluids after 27 years in the exact same spot. I have taken several pictures. including the very small rust areas. If you would like more pictures or of a certain area please contact me and I can add them to the listing or send them to you. All questions are welcome.
