Full Description

1967 MG Midget Mk III

Showing just under 70,000 miles; impressive looking Mk III; well cared for inside and out; accompanied by Heritage Certificate


A cracking example of the wee MG Midget. First despatched from the factory in June 1967, according to the supplied heritage certificate, it was initially issued with disc wheels, a heater, head lamp flasher unit, tonneau cover and the laminated windscreen.
Records from owners and online databases trace the car back to 1990, when it was recorded as having been damaged. It is not known to what extent, but it does imply that it was restored to somewhat before being sold on in 1994. Further restoration continued until c.1998 which included an unleaded head fitted, new petrol tank and multiple cosmetics and routine maintenance, which not only provided a cracking little car but also produced quite a lot of bills, most if not all are on file.
After this, it was regularly MOTd until this day, not only showing the mileage is consistent but also that it was regularly maintained and used. There are invoices covering most of this period, documenting oil changes, brake renewals, replacing ignition parts and all those jobs that need doing every so often to a car such as this. More recently in 2016, the centre and rear section of the exhaust was replaced too, along with a front and rear telescopic shock conversion.
Shortly after this in 2017, the current registered keeper acquired the car and got to work in making it the very presentable car that it is today. 2018 saw the bumpers being taken off, the panels all being made good and a repaint taking place. Now presented for sale again after the unfortunate death of the owner, the Midget is ready, willing and waiting to be driven again. Showing only 67,000 miles, holding a valid MOT until January next year with no advisories and sporting the handy luggage rack, this could be the car to drive and surprise your family with this Christmas!
