1966 MG Midget MkII

Extensively restored in the late 2000s; good looking little runabout

First registered in 1966, this little Midget MkII, like so many others, has had its fair share of owners over the years but still presents very well.

Although there is no documentary evidence from the early days, it appears to have had extensive work done to the bodywork in 1991/92. Invoices on file total approximately £2,000 from this period, which includes various welds and repairs to the body, a new bonnet and a reconditioned gearbox. A bill of sale and an MOT on file indicate it was sold soon after the work was done for £2,750.

Used and maintained regularly by its new lady owner, it was then sold again shortly before 2000, when the speedo started to approach the 100,000 mark. It finally reached this milestone in 2007 when it appears to have been rewarded with a welding birthday and a photo shoot! Included within the file are these photographs showing very detailed repairs to the body and paintwork during this time, but no associated invoices unfortunately.

It was regularly put through an MOT thereafter until November 2020, its latest showing no advisories, which should give potential bidders some confidence as to its road worthiness.

The MKII Midget is perhaps the best of its type, gaining semi eliptic rear springs, wind up windows and a bit more pep over the MkI, but retaining the purity of design inherited from its Austin-Healey sibling....lost in the later cars. Nice ones are now few and far between.
