For Sale: 1979 MG Midget in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

There is something almost indescribably fun about driving a small car such as this 1979 MG Midget, and we do not mean simply small, but downright TINY!

Consider the Mini, T-series MG, Bugeye Sprite, and, maybe most importantly and famously, the MG Midget. The nimble handling and sprightly four-cylinder motor, coupled with a manual gearbox, make this something truly memorable for the proper driving enthusiast. It is a car in which you feel every corner, every shift, every sensation; you feel as though you are Jim Clark driving 150 mph, though you are just taking your kid for ice cream at 35 mph!

Even among Midgets, however, one example must reign supreme and stand taller than the others . . . and that is where this car comes in. Production ended for all Midgets in November 1979, and this car is among the final series, outfitted with the 1,500-cc engine from the Triumph Spitfire which delivered greater torque and was mated to a Morris gearbox will taller gear ratios.

• Highly original car
• Final model year for the iconic Midget
• 1,500 cc engine
• Manual transmission
• Upgraded electronic ignition
• Factory wheels
• Luggage rack
• Runs great

This classic sports car is highly original and still rolling its factory fitted 13-inch wheels. The black interior shows its age with charming patina that has character and presents well. Features such as a chrome luggage rack and interesting triple windshield wipers add to the old-world charm of this final year Midget. Although in a mostly stock original state, the addition of an upgraded electronic ignition system and a recent battery that allows the car to turn over fast and start quickly is a welcome improvement. If you are looking for a fun classic convertible without breaking your bank account, this 1979 MG Midget is a great choice. Call today!
