Non-Member - 1970 MG Midget
White with black interior. Cosmetically less than perfect but looks fine from the cockpit. I got a bad paint job 20 years so there's a some surface rust and chipped paint, but its very solid, original and a good, reliable runner. I bought the car from the original owner 30 years ago in Calif. and have driven it every summer since. Almost never in the snow or rain. Rear brakes, rebuilt the PDWA added Clarici alternator conversion a few years ago, put 4 new tires on it last summer, and the headlights run on relays. Kingpins & A arms from University Motors long ago. Oil cooler. Otherwise, its pretty much unchanged from how it left Abingdon. I have a replacement top to install and the original tonneau. $5,500 or offer. Contact David Groundwater, Located in Orland Park.
