Ready to go for Summer. This delightfully original Midget is an absolute gem.

Lots of history and paperwork. As yet, unconverted to unleaded fuel. Super unleaded with a dose of additive works perfectly. Whilst she has a few cosmetic marks, as you might expect, she is mechanically and structurally sound. There is an area of poor repair, as shown in the photos, on the front edge of the bonnet which has started to crack. It doesn't impact use or performance though. There is small slit (about 1 inch long) in the hood by the passenger door, but as it doesn't get driven in the wet, it's not been a problem.

The Deep Burgundy Red is still a rich colour and polishes up beautifully. The addition of Minilite wheels by a previous owner add an extra shine.

Registered as an historical vehicle by DVLA, she is Tax and MoT exempt. Insurance is also incredibly cheap.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to jump straight into Summer in an open-top classic. I'll be really sorry to see her go, but I don't have the opportunity to use it as much as I'd like.
