The MG Midget Mk I proved to be an instant sales success, in fact it was actually sold in far greater numbers than the near identical Austin Healey Sprite Mk II. In 1964 it was decided to further improve the model and so the Midget Mk II and Sprite Mk III arrived.
The new Mk II introduced more refinement in the form of wind-up door windows, external door handles and locks. The 1098cc engine had a stronger bottom end and the suspension now incorporated rear semi-elliptic springs. An improved facia and instrument panel appeared along with a larger windscreen.
The Midget Mk II remained in production until the arrival of the Mk III in 1966. Practical Classics October 2009 - Featuring Buyers Guide Austin Healey Sprite and MG Midget (1958-1979). Click Here to view in our shop.
