Affordable, sporty, and a heck of a lot of fun – this 1978 MG Midget is a sunny day friend that's ready to go on a whim and will keep you grinning from ear-to-ear on every backroad. The Midget was built to be fun with no fluff added in - qualities of that still have a lot of appeal in the modern times. So you get the classic attractiveness of a long hood and short rear deck that's built with a true purpose to take on the road. But a Midget like this also has a very cool attractiveness that cannot be denied. The red paint is an updated color that has a great shine when the sunlight hits it. Plus, the black bumpers are part of a total package that coordinates with the black rocker panels, mirrors, and Rostyle wheels. This even makes the black folding roof look great when it's in place. Small on the outside doesn't mean cramped inside. Sure it's cozy, but there's adequate legroom and individual comfort thanks to the twin bucket seats. The tan upholstery looks surprisingly stylish nearly 40 year later with the pattern on the seats and door panels still coordinating nicely. The car is all about getting in touch with the great British tradition of purist motoring. There's a grippy steering wheel, a clear set of full gauges, and a manual transmission – that's all you get because that's all you need. Your senses will go into overload as the wind whips through the interior and you help create the wonderful soundtrack from the motor. The relationship between the wheel, shifter, and pedals was designed by enthusiasts who knew what they were doing, because it's a joy to drive. These final generation Midgets received the largest motor ever available to these sprightly MGs. The 1493 cc inline four under the hood produced more torque than the earlier 1275 cc unit, which now made it better suited to American tastes. Add this to better gearing, and this was a quicker car with entertaining performance. The engine bay is quite tidy with the painted valve cover and single Zenith-Stromberg side-draft carburetor. It fires with a sporty tone that suggests this Midget is mightier than its size, and that's part of the car's charm. The setup is specifically built for you to take advantage of the fully-synchronized four-speed gearbox and get the most out of this motor. The light body weight, independent front suspension, and front disc brakes all contribute to the sporting attitude. Still fun after all these years, this Midget is an awesome entry-level roadster whose size is inversely related to the amount of fun it offers. Call today!!!
