This is a superb chrome bumper conversion of a 1980 MG Midget. The car is rust-free and is painted in Jaguar Phoenix red. Most of the mechanical and internal components have been rebuilt over the last two years - all work has been carried out to a very high standard and can be verified by an independent motor engineer who has inspected and carried out the MOT certification along with engine tuning, I will supply their contact details on request. It has all the classic looks of the 1970s car but with the extra power of the 1500 Spitfire engine,
NEA 95V started life as one of the last MG Midgets registered in June 1980 and has been a local car all its life - well known by Sports Car Supplies in Gateshead who serviced and supplied many upgrades including genuine leather seats and additional gauges.
I am a member of the MGOC and have always used their support in the rebuild.
