MG Midget Mk1 Replica 1979 (V) White
DEPOSIT TAKEN: 05/04/2014
Originally manufactured in 1979 as a Rubber Bumper 1500 Midget, it was purchased in 1996 by an English couple living in Portugal. They exported the car and started a restoration and conversion of the car to resemble a MK1 Chrome Bumper Midget.
The restoration was carried out over a 3 year period at a cost of over ?5,000 in parts alone and this included numerous new body panels, new chrome fittings, new leather trim, overhauled Engine & mechanicals + numerous new ancillaries and wiring.
After using the car for a year or so in Portugal, It was sent to us in January 2002 to be sold.
We sold it on their behalf to a local customer to our showrooms here in Mortlake and we looked after it for him until he decided to sell it in September 2006.
We sold it to the current owner later that month and during his ownership he has had an MG exchange Gearbox and new Clutch fitted, a new Starter Motor, new Brake Pipes & Hoses, new rear Leaf Springs, new carpets and 4 new Tyres which were fitted last year.
It is finished in Glacier White with Red Leather Seats, Red Carpets, Black Vinyl Soft Top & Tonneau Cover, Wood veneer dash covering, Wooden Mota-Lita Steering Wheel, Stereo/CD Player with iPod connection,1500cc Engine, 4 Speed Gearbox and 13" Stove Enamelled Wire Wheels.
The car has always been garaged and regularly serviced and MOT'd over the last 11 years and has only covered just over 5,000 miles since the rebuild in Portugal and less that 2,000 miles since the Gearbox and Clutch were fitted in 2008.
It is in excellent condition throughout and It will come with our own customer care package including 12 months MOT, HPI/provenance Checks, 55-point pre-delivery inspection and 6 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded.
