with falling horsepower due to emissions regulations, British
Leyland fitted the final MG Midget Mk IV with the 1493-cc Triumph
Spitfire engine in 1975. The car was simultaneously raised to
reduce the likelihood of damage during a crash, and the car gained
huge rubber safety bumpers at both ends. The bumpers added weight,
and performance of the Mk IV is slightly less than earlier versions
of the car. U.S. cars were fitted with a single Zenith carburetor
and had a top speed around 80 mph. Even though sticker prices had
reached $4,150 in 1977 (nearly $1,500 higher than 5 years earlier),
sales lingered on until 1979, when the last Midget left the
factory. Some cars went unsold that year and were titled as 1980
models. The Mk IV closed the 20-year run for the car. Good examples
of Mk IV Midgets can still be found at the back of garages in
better neighborhoods where they were a popular second car for sunny
days, but time has not been kind to those living on the streets.
Finding bone stock rubber-bumper cars is becoming increasingly
difficult as many owners have opted to rebuild their Midgets with
chrome bumpers from earlier cars.
