AutoHunter Spotlight: 1966 MG Midget

British roadster has been resprayed in its red color


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1966 MG Midget.  

“This red-over-black 1966 MG Midget roadster is powered by a 1,098cc inline four engine equipped with the original dual SU carburetors and a 4-speed manual transmission,” AutoHunter notes in the listing. “The interior features the original dashboard and door panels and black vinyl bucket seats with white piping.” 

The clutch, brake and master cylinders, starter and solenoid were all replaced in August 2021. This engine received a compression test with a result of 150 pounds for each cylinder. 

The British roadster rides on 13-inch wire wheels that feature knock-off spinners and the seller states that the Dunlop tires have less than 1,000 miles.
