Features and Specifications
1975 MG Midget1975 mg midget. I have owned this car for a long time. It has been in my dry garage for at least the last 12 years. It was running when I bought it and i drove it a bunch while I updated the suspension to all urathane bushings. I added a front sway bar and I have a rear sway bar for it but never installed it. I rebuilt all the brakes. it has new drilled rotors. braided brake lines. I rebuilt the front shocks and put heavyer oil in them. I installed a new set of front A Arms and a set of rebuilt spindles. I replaced all the wheel bearings front and rear. I painted the engine conpartment. Then once all this work was done I pulled the engine and trans for there rebuild. The motor has been bored and there are new pistons mounted on rebuilt connecting rods. I bought a cyclinder head that has really nice porting and polish job on it. And I think if I remember right has bigger valves. Head has fresh valve job on it. I drilled and tapped block and head for larger ARP head bolts. Also have new ARP rod bolts for it. I have a brand new autocross grind cam shaft for it and new lifters. Crankshaft has been lightened and knife edged and balanced. Full engine gasket set included. Plus I Bought a Brand new Weber carb and aluminum intake for it and ran it right before engine came out. The engine block has some light surface rust on it that will clean right up. I will include the engine stand and custon mg engine stand bracket with car. I have ton of new parts for the rest of the engine build. should be everything needed to put it back together. We took the transmission fully apart and I have all new bearings, shift forks, a few new gears, etc. full brand new clutch disc, pressure plate, throw out bearing. Whatever it needed is already purchased for it. I am the kind of guy that buys all new parts it could ever need and build it right the first time. All the transmission and engine parts you see in pics that are red or black have been professionaly Powder Coated. I have the convertable top for it but it is not installed. I planned to run car without it. I have a nice roll bar foe car. My plan for this car from day one was to build it into a really nice Autocross car. That is main reason for a ton of these performance upgrades. I do not have the rubber bumpers for the car. But I do have a set of Steel bumpers form a earlier model. I planned to not run any bumpers on it. It has a header and a performance mufflers system on it. It has brand new mishelin tires but they are old now. Paint is pretty nice. Interior is also pretty nice. I built a custom battery box that goes where heater box used to sit. You can run this or put encluded heater box back in. I think I spent around 5000$ for all the new parts the car has on it or with it. and that was at dealer cost as we were a dealer for parts back then.
Reason I never finished is I started Roadracing motorcycles. I have raced for the last 15 seasons. and My roadracing has taken over all my time and money. And it is all I want to work on anymore. So this car needs to go.
I will assist with shipping in any way I can. But cost is on you. I also could possibley deliver for a fee depending on location.
