Full Description

1972 MG Midget MkIII

No Reserve

Older restoration three-owner example from 45-year ownership with history back to the mid '80s showing just 86,000 miles

A later Mk III Midget dating from October ’72, this one has the post-1970 face lift changes which included black sills, recessed black grill and MGB style squared off rear lights.
As a ’72 model, it also gained the rounded rear arches as against the squared arches of the earlier car along with the Triumph sourced steering rack giving lower gearing and lighter steering. As such, these round-arched Midgets are among the most desirable with all the improvements but without the ungainly rubber bumpers that came in ’74 to meet US safety regulations.
This tidy example comes to us from 45-year ownership and is finished in attractive and oh-so-70’s Harvest Gold with black leatherette interior, silver Rostyle wheels and black hood. The car presents well, with power coming from the 65bhp 1,275cc A-series inline four with usual manual ‘box.

The subject of an older restoration, the history file contains bills for various parts from the early/mid-eighties. The odometer reads approximately 86,000 miles, which given its few-owner status is most likely correct, although we recommend you make your own minds up. The car's last MOT expired in October 2020 and was recorded without advisory. We'd suggest this Midget is absolutely one to use and enjoy.
