Midget. The MG Midget is a small two-seater sports car produced by MG from 1961 to 1979. It revived a name that had been used on earlier models such as the MG type M, type D, type J and type T.

This magnificent example was fully restored between 2015 and 2022, with the sole motivation of passion and love for classic cars. The current owner, who carried out the restoration over a period of 7 years, completely dismantled the vehicle and stripped it down to the bone in order to make it as good as new again. At the end of the restoration, the owner had the vehicle and its work inspected by a professional garage. An impressive file of photos and parts invoices is present with the vehicle (to be found in the photos of the advert in the "Documents" category).

The car is painted in 'British Racing Green', the official color of British racing cars of the period.


Estimate: CHF 18,500 - CHF 22,500


Condition :

The body of this vehicle was completely repainted during its restoration. Although the color differs from the original, it is an authentic MG shade, as previously mentioned. The chrome parts shine brilliantly, with the exception of the fuel cap, which shows some signs of wear. The original spoked wheels are in very good condition for their age. A new soft top was fitted during the restoration.

As for the interior, the leather seats and dashboard are new. The wooden gear knob adds a touch of elegance to the overall black interior.

Mechanically, all parts have been disassembled, overhauled or replaced. It starts right up and delivers flawless, reliable performance. Examination of the underside reveals no major rust, indicating a chassis in excellent condition. The whole vehicle bears witness to an excellent restoration.


Appraised as a veteran on 20.04.2022, nothing is to be expected except to take the wheel. This is a small collector's cabriolet that can be used in summer to cruise the lakeshores of our region.

One thing to note is that this vehicle was manufactured in 1964, but was first put on the road in 1966.

Model history :

The MG Midget, launched in 1961, is an emblematic model of the MG brand. Based on the Austin-Healey Sprite, it was created to meet the demand for a simple, economical, high-performance sports car. The MG Midget sports the MG badge on a car that has been manufactured by the brand for two years.

With its compact, elegant design, the Midget offers an agile, light ride thanks to its small engine. Improvements over the years have included body and engine modifications, and the addition of front disc brakes.

The MG Midget also took part in famous rallies such as the Monte Carlo and the Rome-Liège, demonstrating its performance on difficult roads - without any special rally modifications! They arrived at the Monte Carlo with two production Midgets!

An interesting anecdote is that the Midget survived the end of the Healey family deal in 1970, unlike the Sprite. In 1973, it was fitted with plastic bumpers to comply with American safety standards.

Although production of the MG Midget ended in 1979, it remains popular with classic car enthusiasts. It embodies driving pleasure and represents British automotive ingenuity.
