The following imforamtion has been supplied by the vendor:

"Car passed mot first time with no advisories. Garage commented that it is in amazing original condition and in their opinion probably one of the best original midgets left in the world"

This exceptionally low mileage example of MG's 1500cc impact bumper equipped Midget has been enjoyed by just one previous keeper prior to the vendor having been purchased as a retirement present by a BL employee. The 1500cc unit had been proven in the Triumph Spitfire and, together with an all-synchromesh gearbox, gave the MKIV Midget a notable boost in performance over previous models. Capable of over 100mph and known for tidy handling, the MKIV was well received by press and public alike. Displaying just 16,362 warranted miles at the time of cataloguing, NOG 358R is said to be "totally original" aside from a stainless-steel exhaust and "never welded and rot free". Benefiting from being Ziebarted from new, the car wears an original Birmingham registration number as used on Factory cars and comes with both full and quarter original tonneau covers together with an original tool kit and spare keys. Finished in pale Yellow with Black vinyl interior, it has rarely seen rain and the soft top is said to be original and "perfect". Offered with Swansea V5c, such originality and low mileage should appeal greatly to enthusiasts.
