The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview

1976 MG Midget Roadster If you have an affinity for British sports cars, and love tooling around the countryside with top down, buzzing through corners, flipping through gears, and pushing the limits of a cars suspension around curves, then this may be the consignment for you. We present a 1976 MG Midget with faded paint, running great and solid underneath. Oh and dont bloody super-size me, keep it mini! Exterior Nice straight steel panels with decently minded gaps are bolted on to a miniature frame, and adorned Sabrina rubber crash bumpers and chrome bezels for your visual enjoyment. Faded burgundy paint, quite possibly the original coating, is on to these panels giving an unrestored but alluring finish to the body. Some surface rust, bordering on the invasive end of the spectrum is leading the way at the front of the bonnet and a black rocker painting adds nice contrast to the burgundy and goes with the black convertible top. This top is showing some age but remains tear free and shows virtually no hazing or yellowing for the plastic windows. A simple mouthlike opening is in the front of the large rubber bumper with a centered octagonal MG badge. Sparse but effective trimmings for the side mirrors, window surrounds, rocker trim, and door handles show nicely. On the back is another Sabrina mandated crash rear bumper, and large vertical taillights on either corner. Another octagonal MG badge seen on the boot lid. Sporty mag style silver highlighted wheels are on all 4 corners, and all have a black background. Interior A swing of the doors and we have black vinyl for the door panels. This is showing a bit wrinkled and is peppered with black knobs and chrome pulls with a fabricated auxiliary door release. The buckets are in black vinyl with a central ribbed pattern to compliment the textured grain. The original dash is upfront and in splendid condition. Overall, in very nice condition with original gauges and a nice center console in black with an ashtray and the shift lever with a watch like knob topper. The factory AM/FM radio hangs below the chrome trimmed and mesh grilled speaker. Lightly faded black carpet covers the floors, and nice black mats cover the carpet. A peek into the trunk shows an original and unrestored stowage area that holds the spare 5 spoke MG rally style wheel and tire. Drivetrain A flip of the bonnet and an unrestored and original engine bay greets us and is looking cracking. Shes a BMC Austin A-series 1493cc 4-cylinder and is fed by a single Zenith CD4 1bbl carb and features overhead valves. On the back is a 4-speed manual transmission pushing power rearward to a 3.90 rear axle. Small but mighty with a new alternator noted. Undercarriage Underneath we note some surface rust, on suspension parts and the edges of the unibody where the floor pans and rockers meet. Front disc brakes are on with drums in the rear and the exhaust has a stock style muffler. Providing the sporty and surefooted ride is an independent coil spring front suspension that works with a leaf spring suspension in the rear. New fuel lines have been installed and are looking just cracking amid the patina finished undercarriage. Drive-Ability This car started with ease, and rolled effortlessly over to the Classic Auto Mall test track. Here it performed very nicely with some power coming from the engine and that Zenith 1bbl carb. Good acceleration, smooth shifting, and very snappy handling, with straight bias free panic braking. An overall good experience especially with the top down and the factory radio still works well. A fun car, unrestored, still presenting nicely and a hoot to drive. Good interior, nice patina riddled engine bay, faded burgundy paint with some black accenting on the lowers, and shiny chrome trimmings throughout. Overall solid on the exterior, and its a convertible. This mini definitely provides maximum enjoyment in a mini package. SO, I guess good things do come in small packages?!
