"Thank you Gloria - and Jesmond. Our experience in purchasing a classic car from you has been very agreeable and we are very pleased with the presentation of the car, its mechanical integrity and your attention to all essential paperwork."Ian & Sue McCracken, North Canterbury, New Zealand
The MG Midget traces its lineage back to the Austin-Healey Frogeye Sprite, the car which brought affordable sports car motoring to the British public in 1958. In 1961 the Austin-Healey Sprite Mk2 arrived, and with it the badge engineered MG Midget – a better appointed version that shared the majority of components with its Austin-Healey stablemate.
Just about anyone who looks at an MG Midget is going to smile, and driving one of these cars will mean you breaking out into a full-size grin, even if you might have a squeeze getting into the car. And that can be a fun challenge in itself.
