1972 MG Midget


Minor facelift changes were made to the body trim in late 1969, with the sills painted black, a revised recessed black grille, and squared off taillights as on the MGB. The 13-inch Rubery Owen ‘Rostyle’ wheels were standardized, but wire-spoked ones remained an option. These revised cars were initially presented with matt black-painted windscreen surrounds but this proved very unpopular and after only a few hundred had been built the Midget reverted to the original brushed alloy.

The square-shaped rear wheel arches became rounded in January 1972 and are considered to be the most desirable of the Midget range. Also in this year, a Triumph steering rack was fitted, giving a gearing that was somewhat lower than earlier Midgets.

This beautifully presented ‘round arch’ Midget in pillar box red with contrasting black interior was the subject of a comprehensive restoration in recent years and is described to be in excellent all round condition.
