1980 MG Midget 1500

Smart, late model 1500 in desirable triple black with 1500 power; very usable and lots of fun

In our vendor's hands for the last 11 years this late model Midget hails from the final year of production and boasts the proven 1500cc Standard SC engine as seen in the Triumph Spitfire. Retaining its once unfashionable black rubber bumpers, they work well here matching the black coach work, black centered Rostyle wheels, black vinyl hood and black vinyl interior.

Presenting well, with good shiny paintwork, clear windows to the roof and Eurometric tyres with lots of tread it looks ready to be enjoyed, starting promptly and running as it should as we moved it around the these shots and video.  Evidently the subject of restoration at some point, the history file contains solely the V5C. The odometer shows 12,662 miles which we assume to be 112,662 given they roll over at 99,999 miles, although the last recorded MOT in 2005 suggested a mileage then of 12,591 miles so your guess is as good as ours.

That aside, it looks excellent value given the recent upwards trend of Midgets with their proven reliability and usability mixed with great fun factor. A tidy and usable car throughout.
