1965 MG Midget 1275
A UK supplied 1965 MG Midget 1275 convertible – We purchased this car from its former keeper after it had laid in storage for a couple of years from the third owner from new (A BBC news corespondent) who had built the car to use for touring comfortably around Europe some years before. As a result the car now boasts many improvements and subtle modifications to improve the overall driving experience.
Hidden within the ring binder of history with the vehicle are receipts for thousands documenting completely the upgrades that have been fitted. This includes: Electronic ignition, kenlowe fan, poly-bushed front suspension, spax adjustable dampers, anti roll bar, 5 Speed T5 gearbox clutch and fly wheel, Unleaded head conversion, 4 Pot front brake calipers, electronic speedo, sports comfort seats,CD player, 12V power supplies, full wet weather gear and tonneau, brand new wire wheels, tires and knock on’s. The list of work is endless (most of which was completed in 2011).
Since 2011 The car has registered just 600 miles meaning most of these components are “as new” with the gearbox conversion costing over £2,500 in parts alone!
This vehicle was UK supplied from new and has had just 3 former owners (the last owned the car since 2003). The owner before him had owned it from 1984 to 2003. In 1994 the then owner completed a body restoration which included replacement from wings, and front valance. before respraying the vehicle into racing green.
The restoration has seemingly stood well with the car remaining completely solid however over the years there have been various small “touch in” repairs all around. Ideally the car would benefit from a full respray now however it does remain presentable and completely usable.
Since purchasing the vehicle we have renewed the rear brake cylinders and flushed the fuel system along with a reset of the SU carbs to ensure good running along with renewing its MOT.
An excellent usable exciting little Midget with room for cosmetic improvement.
