1962 MG Midget

A 1275cc engine with a Pertronix ignition and Datsun 210 5-speed manual transmission this MG Midget is ready to take on any winding mountain road, or just cruising down the highway! All this little roadster needs, is a new home. With a rear end gear ratio of 4.22:1 and an overdrive gear it is quick off the line and still can reach higher speeds with ease. The disc brake conversion on this car is able to round off the build, making it an excellent driving machine! The first version, announced at the end of June, 1961, was essentially a slightly more expensive badge-engineered version of the MkII Austin-Healey Sprite. The original 'frogeye' Sprite had been introduced specifically to fill the gap in the market left by the end of production of the MG T-type Midget as its replacement, the MGA had been a significantly larger and more expensive car with greater performance. Mechanically the car was identical to its Austin-Healey counterpart, retaining the rear suspension using quarter-elliptic leaf springs and trailing arms from the 'frogeye'. Brakes were 7-inch drums all round. A hard top, heater, radio and luggage rack were available as factory-fitted extras.

In October, 1962, the engine was increased to 1098 cc, raising the output to 56 HP 62 lbâ‹…ft, and disc brakes replaced the drums at the front. Wire spoked wheels became available. The doors had no external handles or locks and the windows were sliding Perspex side-screens.
