Description

We are delighted to offer for sale this “fast road prepared” 1972 MG Midget Mk3.

This stunning example has been fully restored and is presented in Glacier White with the option of full race bucket seats (as seen in the photos), or “period correct”, black leather Corbeau bucket seats.

This stunning MG also benefits from a Safety Devices International Ltd roll cage, cut off switch, 3 point race harnesses, fully plumbed in fire extinguisher system. The period colour is offset perfectly by a beautiful set of 13” mini-lite alloy wheels fitted with Yokohama Advan AO48 tyres.
