Description

MG Frontline Midget 1968

We’ve all lusted after an MG Midget over the years. One of Britain’s great sports cars. Compact, yes. Good Looking, yes. Easy to maintain, Yes. 147BHP Yes!

 

Sorry what was that 147BHP?

 

Yes, this 1968 MG Midget was Frontline Developments demonstrator. Its fitted with a K Series 1.8 litre engine, uprated suspension, brakes, and has had a thorough sniff of serious performance enhancing attention.

Finished in Traditional British Racing Green and fitted with Grey leather seats, this is one complete and utter head case of a Midget, but as it looks almost standard, makes the most ideal Q Car.

This Car has a massive spec:

1.8 Rover K Series Engine

147BHP with Rolling Road Confirmation

260 Fast Road Cams

Emerald ECU

Aluminium Radiator

5 Speed Type 9 Gearbox

Strengthened Chassis

Frontline Adjustable Telescopic Shock Absorbers to Front

Uprated Anti Roll bar

Frontline Adjustable Telescopic Shock Absorbers to Rear

Lowered Leaf Springs to Rear uprated to 340lb

Anti Tramp Bars

Rear Traction Control Links

Polybushed all round

Limited Slip Diff

EN40 Nitrided Half Shafts

Double Hub Bearing Kit

Customer Made Aluminium Fuel Tank with Anti Slosh Baffles

So what we’re talking here is one seriously sorted Midget. 0-60 is reputedly around 6.5 seconds, and it feels like it. But it feels so well sorted on the road. We like outrageous Midgets, but we’ve never EVER had anything like this.

 

This car will be ideal for someone wanting an interesting track day car, or something for Sprints and Hillclimbs.

 

Or better still just for blowing 911’s off on country roads. Nothing will stick with this Midget other than a well ridden motorbike travelling from A to B on country roads.

Be in no doubt, Frontline make a seriously well sorted car, and this car is just that.

 

It’s not possible to buy more fun anywhere right now wearing an MG badge for £13995.

 

Go on, you know you want to!
