1961 MG Midget MK1
(Featured on 7th December 2013)
Sellers original description:
This fabulous example was repatriated home to the UK after 52 years living in the sunshine state of NEW MEXICO the car was in excellent RUST FREE condition and ran well, We decided after examining her that she deserved a new lease of life, We stripped her back to bare metal and our body shop was amazed at NO sign of rust, You can still see the ORIGINAL spot welds on the bottom of the sills, ALL the jacking points are still in there original state from new, We MUST STRESS THAT NO RUST WAS present on the body, We treated her to a very HIGH quality repaint in her original colour of Tartan Red with original black piped red bucket seats with new black carpets, The engine was stripped and examined and some new internals were fitted, The Engine and gearbox are super, She drives VERY nicely.
This is one of the nicest 52 year old cars you will find, The Mk1 is very rare the distinguishing notes are NO door handles, NO side windows, Chrome on sides and bonnet she is very closely related to her cousin the Frog Eyed Sprite.
She has immaculate full weather gear, HOOD,TONNEAU, SIDE SCREENS she even has the original Jack and tools.
At some time in her recent life she had the very expensive upgrade of running on WEBER 40 DCOE
Carburetor which enhances her power and with her BRAND NEW stainless exhaust sounds fabulous.
In essence this is a rare opportunity to purchase a car that can only increase in value and enjoy and cherish while your investment grows, These cars are seriously undervalued but as the rarity grows even more the value will rise,
She comes with NEW MOT, 12 months Tax (free), She has now been registered with DVLA and given 1961 number of 908 YUU.
You must see her and you WILL fall in love.
