Our 1976 MG Midget 1500 is now live on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

It has a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine that is capable of delivering a driving experience that is both exciting and enjoyable. Paired with a four-speed manual gearbox, the Midget offers a fun and reliable drive.

Designed as a small, affordable sports car, the MG Midget was a popular choice for those seeking the thrill of open-top driving without sacrificing practicality, and now you can own this one!

All the information you need is available on the Bridge Classic Cars Competitions website.

A Word From Stephen Norman

Former Vauxhall MD (amongst many other influential positions), Stephen Norman recently reached out to us after seeing the arrival of our 1976 MG Midget. This is what he said:

The MG Midget went out of production in 1978, two years earlier than the MGB and MGB GT [and coincidentally the Triumph Spitfire 1500].

The Sandglow example that you have in is not only a good-looking car but recalls to my memory that Sandglow – a staple BL colour of the mid to late ‘seventies and painted both at Cowley and in Longbridge, as witnessed on countless Minis, Allegros, Marianas and Princesses was a rare order on an MG.

That it was offered at all is down to the production of MG bodies at Pressed Steel Fisher in Cowley and their painting at Morris; specific MG colours had disappeared long before.

But Sandglow, like Tundra, was a rare colour choice on a sports car and always stood out for its rarity as much as its perception.

Mainstream on a humdrum BL Austin or Morris [or Wolseley], rare on an MG.

So typically British Leyland!

While our MG Midget has been with us, Chris has been repairing and painting the wing.
