1975 MG Midget 1500 For Sale

£4,250 - Offers invited

Description
On offer is my solid 1975 MG Midget 1500 in Black with Black upholstery, radio cassette and Rostyle wheels. Road tax is free as the vehicle is more than 40 years old and has a current MOT until 23/10/2017. A Minor Service has just been carried out as well as four new tyres, tracked and balanced. The car is now ready to go and waiting for the sunshine!

There is a large history file with receipts, MOT’s and photographic evidence of previous restoration.
Mileage is currently shown as 24656. The body restoration was completed at 22137 with the engine replaced at 23580. Therefore, less than 2600 miles since the body restoration was completed and less than 1100 miles since the new re-manufactured engine & unleaded head was installed. (See photos attached – all taken in March 2017).

The car went through an extensive full body restoration during the period 2010-2011 with a former owner stripping the body back to basic metal, cutting out and replacing all necessary body panels prior to a ‘bare metal’ re-paint.

Since my ownership in 2013, the following work has been carried out (either new or refurbed):-
* Ivor Searle re-manufactured engine and unleaded head installed in 2014.
*Gearbox has been professionally overhauled and a new clutch fitted.
*Refurbished manifold.
*’Luminition Electronic Ignition’ and Coil installed.
*Reconditioned twin SU’s from the MG owners club, Heatshield and Pancakes
*Front and rear suspension (dampers/spring kit etc.) and polybushed.
*Steering rack
*Stub axles & King Pins
*Front Wheel Bearings
*Anti roll bar & track rod ends
*New Radiator, Water Pump and Coolant hoses with Waterless coolant
*Fuel tank and Sender unit
*New Battery …… and many more ‘bits’.

There are some minor blemishes in the paintwork and rear rubber bumper skin and a small repair to the hood (a pprox.29mmx9mm). (The car needs to be seen to appreciate all the work carried out).
