Description

This is a 1972 MG Midget, from a two year production span when these cars had round rear wheel arches; aka a RWA car.
It has had an easy life for the past 30 years, resting in the heated basement of its prior owners home. After a minor right front impact the front fenders and hood were removed and the car placed in the basement garage for repair, which never happened. That was 1984, and is the most recent Alabama registration certificate, which will be provided along with a bill of sale.
The car is 95% complete but disassembled, good front fenders and an excellent hood come with the car, the front valance will need to be replaced or repaired. The lack of rust is truly amazing, the sills, "A" posts, rear dog legs, trunk floor are all 100% rust free. Very minor floor rust, the size of small coins, is all I can find. The engine is correct for the car, based upon its numbers, so I strongly suspect the car is numbers matching, although I have not confirmed this with a Heritage Certificate. As you can see from the listing, several boxes of parts are included, all the glass is excellent, and the chrome bumpers are straight and clean. I have no idea what the true miles are on the car, I just plugged a number in the listing. Please reach out for extra photo's, or specific questions, I will be happy to answer them.
Wheels and tires. When I collected the car the tires were so shot with dry rot they wouldn't even hold air. I removed them and had the wheels media blasted, painting the wheels in Rust Oleum hammered finish silver-gray, they came out great. I mounted 4 brand new Vredestein 155/80-13 unidirectional classic radials, (these are not cheap tires), balanced, with new valve stems. Please look closely at those pictures. Now, I realize that this wheel & tire choice may not be what you are looking for. So, if you win the auction and don't want these wheels and tires I will give you a $300 cash refund when you collect the car, but you will need to bring your wheels to swap over, which I will assist with. The new wheels & tires are now on the car, so she's easy to move.
I can deliver the car for a reasonable charge. Delivery is free within 100 miles of zip 37034, beyond that please ask for a quote BEFORE bidding. I will consider any distance that I can do without an overnight, but we must discuss this first.
This is a great start for a project, you can see what a clean straight car it is, nothing is hidden by a cheap paint job. Please ask any questions before bidding, this auction is no reserve. Bid with confidence, you will not be disappointed.
