Visit http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/1971-mg-midget/ to see this 1971 MG Midget for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California. This 1971 MG Midget has had less than 1,000 miles added to its lifetime 85k total since completion of a 2008 restoration. Built with autocross and fast road use in mind, the car remains matching numbers and runs a built, 1293cc A-series, Nissan 5-speed gearbox, upgraded suspension and more detailed below. Roughly $23,000 in receipts document maintenance and refurbishment, including a fully stripped and rust-repaired body. The car is now completely corrosion free, sorted and ready to drive. Purchased by the seller in 1982, it was driven regularly before being disassembled for restoration. Other commitments delayed the project for several years, with work beginning in earnest in 1999. Body and paint were completed by Brooklands British Car in Tacoma, Washington, with the remainder of assembly done at the seller's home over a several year period. An unrestored, factory hardtop is included, and the car rides on 72 spoke 4.5" wide wire wheels including a spare. Bumpers have been re-chromed. The interior is clean and remains largely stock with original seats and steering wheel. Reproduction carpets, door panels, and a re-covered dash complete the tidy appearance. Instruments remain fully factory and are in good working order, and Willans four point harnesses secure both driver and passenger.

1969 MG Midget, I have owned this car for the past 9 years. It's a California car and a nice example of a classic British sports car.
A big day! The MG came out of the garage for the first time in nearly two years. This is just a "let's make sure it all works" drive. The power steering pump was a bit low on fluid, thus the moaning noise. The brakes were a bit soft but worked - you can see me checking them as I bring the car out of the garage the first time. And yes, there was a good burnout that didn't get caught on camera. The car is a 1972 MGB GT that's been fitted with the engine and transmission from a 1998 Camaro Z28. It's packing somewhere between 350 and 400 hp, has a 6-speed T-56 transmission and a Positraction rear. The front suspension runs on a custom frame and is modeled after a Miata, the rear is a custom three-link setup. At the moment, the car weighs less than 2000 lbs. Please note that while the radiator looks low, it actually fit behind the MG Special Tuning airdam that is not fitted. It's since been replaced with a more efficient radiator that isn't quite as deep, mostly for better cooling. For more information: http://www.slowcarfast.com
Had to move the muffler. Too low and it hung up on speed bumps, drive way entrances and most insects on the road. Made a much smaller chambered pipe. It's louder ! It will get caught less often. Let's face it: the car is very low, but you expect a Midget to be short
