Selling this 1976 MG Midget for a friend. He is 73 years old, in the hospital and not doing very well. Ex Marine and Viet Nam vet. This vehicle needs some work. I am not saying it isn't rebuild-able, I just don't want to present a silk purse here. It has some cancer in various places, the cylinder head is missing and who knows what else. It has a couple of dents in the fender and hood. It looks to me that there may be some rust in the exterior body panels, shown by bubbling under the paint. The intake manifold for one is missing, but I do have an extra set of SU carburetors and air cleaners that go with it. I believe there is a radiator for it. It would be nice that if whoever is interested in purchase, would be able to go through the extra parts and pick what go with it. I think the rear wheels may be locked up. I thought I got it in neutral gear but was only able to move it back a couple of feet and not forward. I can say that this MG has a much bigger engine than the one going with the 1966 we are also selling. My friend purchased this vehicle from a local towing company. I have found paperwork where he started a title transfer, but I don't think he ever completed it.
I am sure I have probably forgotten something. Please drop me an email with any questions. If I am online I will answer immediately. I do not have a smart phone as yet, so be patient. Probably the best way to contact me is by phone. Let's see if ebay will let me list it. 916-591-4195 Old fashioned I know, but still works. Thank You for looking.
We will of course work with your shipper to expedite this transaction.
