Description

Owned for 11 years, attended the MaSc Spridget 50th and Spridget 60th. My car is well known in the club and is very reliable. (A puncture is just about all I can recall which halted my progress once).

Never raced or rallied by me but has been on lots of club runs and exhibitions etc. It is one of the very original cars without the late 1958 suspension mods.

The car is not a £30k concourse car although it’s very presentable. It is my fun car and retains a restored 950cc engine and gearbox – no problems with that combination.

Still has drum breaks all round. I replaced the rear half shaft bearings with sealed ones.

It has a soft top with restored side screens, tonneau (which could do with a bit of sewing but very usable as is) It is fitted with a 1960 windscreen (to prevent leaks when soft top is used!) it’s economical, had a recent oil change (engine and gearbox ) serviced (by me)  regularly.

I have not got around to fitting the inner trim in the footwells but I have all the red vinyl ready to do it. No carpets – no problem when it rains!

A later reliable MG Midget electronic Rev counter is fitted, Speedo is original and seems to be calibrated well when compared with GPS. Under dash 12v socket fitted for that.

The car has just had a new fuel tank and sender unit.  There is no rust except maybe a bit of surface rust, it’s very clean underneath. Its very lightweight having both a good quality fibreglass bonnet and rear clip (hard to tell it’s not steel)

I have fitted 2 4-point seat belt harnesses this year. Daughter insisted so I could take grandson as navigator!
