Compared to other small sports car, the MG Midget enjoyed extensive popularity in the UK and was manufactured right up until the 1980s. It’s still a favourite with many classic car owners and we’ve had a few turn up at our garage for repairs and renovations.
Like many enthusiasts, we get out to many of the classic car meets around the West Sussex and Home Counties area during the year. There’s always at least one MG Midget there to admire and faun over.
About the MG Midget
This classic two-seater car was first produced back in 1961 and was a more exclusive and expensive version of the Austin Healey. It quickly became a popular car on the roads but it was a vehicle that didn’t travel abroad well.
When a model was made for the American market, the makers had to increase the ride height and add bigger bumpers to meet local regulations. That meant the car was a little more difficult to handle and wasn’t as popular in the US as it was in the home UK market.
