The first generation (Mark I) MG Midget was a pint sized little runabout from Morris Garage that shared mechanical parts with the Sprite from Austin-Healey from 1961-1964. The Midget shared basically every part of its bill-of-materials (except the badge) with the Sprite, but today’s example has a bigport 2T-C 4-cylinder 1.6-liter engine borrowed from an early 70s Toyota Celica or Corona. Find this 1964 MG Midget offered for $1900 in Olympia, WA via craigslist. Tip from JB1025.

1964 MG midget mk1 roadster. Toyota 2tc engine all hooked up that turns over, needs exhaust manifold and radiator. T50 5speed transmission and a weber carb. With a little work this could be a driver. This car is titled and comes with a titled parts car. Would make a great resto project too! Possible trade for dry sauna.
