MG Midget Chrome Bumper 1961 - This 1961 "Midget" is a non-restored , early model car powered by the 948cc Engine and having no exterior door handles, so for the purists the one to have and very rare to find anywhere near this condition, outside of a museum or private collection.
The exterior paint, chrome and hood are all in excellent condition, the roof being only recently replaced so still like new, completed with the correct wing mirrors and a nice rear luggage rack correctly mounted on the boot. Interior is very good with its wooden MG steering wheel, MG gearstick and very nice leather trim
The engine is a little "screamer" that loves to be revved, matched well with the close ratio gearbox and short throw gear lever making these diminutive cars such fun to own and drive, proving that with a good chassis, you do not have to be going at 100mph to enjoy yourself.
Overall the general mechanics and electrics are very good and there is an engine immobiliser fitted for a bit of extra security. There is loads of paper work with the car, amongst which is a Heritage Trust certificate confirming its year etc and an MOT through to next year.
These early model Midgets are so hard to find like this and prices have soared in the last few years, making this a rare opportunity to own a bit, ok "small" bit of British motoring history at a sensible price.
