BaT Auction: 1966 MG Midget

This post was originally published on this site

This 1966 MG Midget is finished in red over a black interior and receives power from 1275cc inline-four paired to a 4-speed manual gearbox. The seller recently acquired it from the previous owner of 37 years, who originally purchased it for their daughter in the mid-1980s and performed a refurbishment in 2014. It comes equipped with a set of wire wheels, a roll bar, later-model seats, and an aftermarket exhaust. Approximately 100 miles have been added by the seller, during which time the carburetors were serviced and an oil change performed. The car is now being offered with a recent third-party appraisal, receipts dating back to 2014, and a clear British Columbia title in the seller’s name.

The body was painted in a Mazda red during the 2014 refurbishment, and according to the seller, it received a new driver’s side rocker panel and metal repair to the rear quarters. Much of the brightwork has reportedly been replated or replaced. Various small imperfections have been highlighted in the gallery below, including a chip in the windshield, rocker panel, and chrome bumper.

Inside, a set of non-original black vinyl seats have been added, along with seatbelts and a roll bar. Replacement upholstery and aftermarket sound deadening were installed during the refurbishment in 2014.

79k miles are currently shown on the five-digit odometer, and the seller indicates that the tachometer and fuel gauge currently register inaccurately.

The 1275cc inline-four was reportedly overhauled by the previous owner, along with both SU carburetors. A four-speed manual gearbox delivers power to the rear, and an aftermarket exhaust has been fitted.

A textured undercoating has been applied to the underside to the floors, wheel wells, and fuel tank. Additional lift photos have been provided in the gallery, and two videos taken by the seller are shown below.
