1970 MG Midget 22,693 (Not Warranted) £4000.00 + buyers premium


A great example of the popular 1275cc Midget, with only one previous registered keeper. The current registered keeper bought this MG in 2013 from Surrey Sports cars, who offered it on behalf of the first owner, a lady in Leatherhead. He was assured that the recorded mileage (then just over 22,000 miles) was indeed correct. He has used the car sparingly, adding only another 600 miles in the last 4 years. Unfortunately there is no history with the car, except the MOT record which shows the mileage in 2007 as 21,428, and also shows very low annual mileage ( eg 27 miles from Oct’08 to July ’10 ). So it is possible that the very low recorded mileage may be correct, but of course this can’t be warranted without more information. We have written to the first owner to try to get some clarification on the mileage, and will update if there is a response.
The car itself is in good order, drives well, and has an MOT to March 2018 with no advisories. It could be improved with some detailing but is very sound, rot free, and attractive. It has a good hood, tonneau, half tonneau, and a moto lita steering wheel. The valuation is based on it being a good condition average mileage car, so this could turn out to be a great buy!

Auctioneers notes: These little sports cars are such value for money, they make you smile every time you drive them.
