1980 MG MIDGET 1500. STUNNING LITTLE SPORTS CAR IN BRITISH RACING GREEN. ALLOY WHEELS. SPORTY EXHAUST.

This cracking little MG Midget 1500 finished in British Racing Green was first registered 01-02-1980 making one of the last to be made. The previous owner passed away in 2009 and the car was stored until 2015 when it was re-commissioned for the road and sold by a well known classic car dealer to the current owner. He in turn has lavished a huge amount of time and money on the car to get it in the superb condition that it is in today. This including the reconditioned engine out, serviced and painted and re-installed with a new reconditioned gearbox. Rebuilt suspension with new shock absorbers, 1 1/2 inch lowering kit, larger anti roll bar and bushes, new trunnions, buffers, wishbone pivots, stub axle, track rod ends, rebound straps, new road springs, shackle plates, overhauled calipers, brake pads, brake hose and fluid, brake cylinders, wheel alignment and poly bush’s. In the engine bay there was new heat shield, water pipes, clips, ally rocker cover, K&N filters, LCB exhaust manifold, stainless steel sports exhaust system and a new battery. Interior had new seat diaphragm, seat runners, a high quality Pioneer radio (with bluetooth, hands free, ipod etc.), speakers, sports steering wheel, interior lights. Outside had a nice BRG respray, a hood tonneau a full tonneau, a new hood and was treated to a new set of Minilite style alloy wheels with new tyres. In short making what was already a good Midget in to a fantastic one. There is a history file of old invoices that total over £7000 (over £4500 in the last year) and MOT’s showing the car has only done 2000 miles in the last 10 years. This really is a cracking little car. It looks great, drives great, sounds great and is great.
