Affordable, sporty, and a heck of a lot of fun a?" this 1978 MG Midget is a sunny day friend thats ready to go on a whim and will keep you grinning from ear-to-ear on every back / brbr The Midget was built to be fun with no fluff added in - qualities of that still have a lot of appeal in the modern times. So you get the classic attractiveness of a long hood and short rear deck thats built with a true purpose to take on the road. But a Midget like this also has a very cool attractiveness that cannot be denied. The black paint is an updated color applied during this cars restoration that has a great shine when the sunlight hits it. This gives the car a full blacked-out package against the bumpers, rocker panels, and even with the black roof in place. Plus, the bright elements like the windshield surround and luggage rack look great against this full midnight package. The dark and light combo come together perfectly on the iconic Rostyle wheels. br / brbr For a car named Midget, there is a surprising amount of room inside. Decent legroom and the individual vinyl bucket seats are the key to this cars comfort. Plus, features like the AM/FM stereo and heater are nice period-correct luxuries. Good care and the right investments over the years means the door panels, boot cover, and carpeting are all nicely coordinated and remain attractive.

The 1493 cc inline four under the hood is believed to be original, and it 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 a quicker car with entertaining performance. The engine bay is quite tidy with the painted valve cover and single Zenith-Stromberg side-draft carburetor. It fires with a sporty tone that suggests this Midget is mightier than its size, and thats part of the cars 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. The light body weight, independent front suspension, and front disc brakes all contribute to the sporting / brbr When you pour through all the pictures (including the trunk) you see a roadster thats been respected all its life. And thats backed up with the large document file that includes owners manual and restoration phots.
