Affordable, sporty, and a heck of a lot of fun - this 1977 MG
Midget is a sunny day's best friend. So it's ready to go on a whim
and will keep you grinning from ear-to-ear on every back road.
The Midget was built to be fun with no fluff added in - qualities
that still have a lot of appeal in modern times. So you get the
classic attractiveness of a long hood and short rear deck that's
built with a true purpose to enjoy the road. And the luggage rack
looks ready for a wicker picnic basket. And a well-coordinated
Midget like this has a very cool attractiveness that cannot be
denied. The red paint is an updated color that looks good on a
runabout. Plus, the black bumpers are part of a total package that
goes with the black rocker panels and Rostyle wheels. This even
makes the black folding roof look great when it's in place.
For a car named Midget, there is a surprising amount of room
inside. Decent legroom, full carpeting, and individual bucket seats
are the key to this car's comfort. Plus, features like the heater
and wiring for a modern stereo (the current unit may need
upgrading) are nice features for those who like driving their
classics. And there's an overall attractiveness because this has
all the best elements of a British sports car. The steering wheel
has a nice grip, the gearshift feels like an extension of your arm,
and the full Smiths gauge package instantly connects this to other
British greats like Aston Martin. It's a true driver's machine.
These final generation Midgets received the largest motor ever
available to these sprightly MGs. The 1493 cc inline-four under the
hood produced more torque than the earlier 1275 cc unit, which now
made it better suited to American tastes. Add this to better
gearing, and this was an improved lightweight car with an
entertaining performance. This motor was even given a new Weber
carburetor within about the last year, and so it has the right
feeling for a strong powerhouse that suggests this Midget is
mightier than its size. That's part of the car's true charm. The
setup is specifically built for you to take advantage of the
fully-synchronized four-speed gearbox and get the most out of this
motor. Plus, with a newer brake master cylinder, front disc brakes,
nimble steering, and a newer clutch master cylinder, it feels ready
for the road.
Complete with service manuals, this Midget is an awesome
entry-level roadster whose size is inversely related to the amount
of fun it offers. Call today!!!
