Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline March 2016


Non-Member - 1979 Midget, in parts to sell. 
My wife and I purchased the car with the intent to restore it.  The body has some rust at door bottoms but the sills and floor pans are solid. 90% of the car carefully disassembled, bagged and all parts identified. Engine and transmission are out and the crankshaft is at a shop to be reground. Plan is to do all new bearings, rings, seals etc. on the reassembly. We have reached the point where we would like to sell the project.  It would be nice to sell the whole thing at once but I would consider selling it in parts.

Needs complete restoration, drivetrain was removed by previous owner, however these cars use relatively common T-series engines, gearboxes and rear axles. All the hard-to-find bits are all there, including a remarkably nice interior. The wood trim, chrome trim, seats and headliner are very nice, all gauges present, the radiator and shell and headlamps have not one single ding, and the key is still in the ignition! A flat-bed trailer goes with the MG - all for $2000. Please call Tom at 815-900-8858. Crystal Lake, IL. Pictures: 1 2
