Vehicle Description

This 1973 MG Midget MkIII Roadster is one of the nicest Midgets we have ever seen. Finished in traditional Bright Red over a Tan Interior. Powered by a 1,275cc 4-Cylinder Engine and backed by a 5-Speed Manual Transmission. It has been completely restored and features an upgraded modern electronic ignition system.Built on August 13, 1973, in Abingdon, England, this fantastic and difficult-to-find Midget was subject to a full ground-up restoration to show standards. The body was a rust-free, accident-free shell which was completely stripped down to bare metal to be expertly finished and painted. The bodywork and paint are excellent. The engine is the desirable and more powerful 1,275cc version and was completely rebuilt. The transmission has been updated to a 5-speed, which really helps these cars at freeway speeds. The Rostyle wheels and a front anti-roll bar were factory extras. Electronic ignition and 5-speed Rivergate transmission are the only modifications. Everything on this car is either new or rebuilt from the ground up. This car can be driven out of our showroom today for a fraction of what it cost to build.If you are looking for a fabulous and fun classic roadster that can be driven, shown, admired and enjoyed for years to come, this '73 MG Midget is worthy of consideration. Since the '70s and '80s, the MG Midget has been the budget sports car of choice and first starter classic of many. Early models are becoming increasingly rare and values are rising. As a first classic, the Midget has few peers. Its low running costs, diminutive size, and small purchase price make it the perfect car to drive into the world of classic motoring. A well-sorted example is an absolute blast to drive and its diminutive shape makes 50mph feel like 150mph.Fortunately, little has changed over the past 30 years -- the Midget is still a bargain classic and aficionados consider the round-arch Midgets with chrome bumpers produced for model years 1972-1974, such as this fine example, to be the most desirable. The MG Midget can trace 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.For more information on this 1973 MG Midget, or any of our 30+ Cabriolets, Convertibles, Drop-Tops, Roadsters and Volantes always in stock, contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants or feel free to drop by our 5-acre Bellevue, WA facility - Home to the West Coast's Most Exciting Inventory of Luxury, Exotic, Sports and Collectible Cars.
