Jolly Green Dwarf: 1967 MG Midget

The MG Midget is a peppy little chihuahua of a car, with more zip, zap, and yip than you would ever expect from a classic British sports car.  Pound for pound it'll put more smiles on the faces of random strangers than a puppy-money-baby and good luck getting your puppy-money-baby to give you a ride to work.  Find this 1967 MG Midget for $2500 near Ft Myers, FL via craigslist. Tip from Dascpcu.

From the seller:

1967 mg runs and drives great in good shape for the year good top needs a little bit of work can be a lot of fun only thing missing is the numbers new gas tank and fuel pump have a few parts duel car system I have 2 many cars and no time to finish it

See a better way to drive something classic?


  1. Premium example of a crappy Craigslist ad: blurry photos taken in a garage, no interior shots, no mileage, don't understand the meaning of "parts duel car system" unless the meaning = two cars with pistols shooting at one another.

    In its favor, the price seems right.

  2. Had two: sold #1 while in HS, went through withdrawls, bought #2 and drove it into the ocean knee deep (high tide at night)@DaytonaBeach spring break. Pushed it out and drove off.

  3. Seems like a great price. A little bit of work would go a long way on this. Sand down the glob of bondo on the front and get color matched spray paint. I bet one could blend it good enough.

  4. Biggest problem: not a Bugeye...

    1. Put a Bugeye front on the Midget.....I've read people saying that it's not all that difficult to turn a Midget into a Bugeye...And that is probably what I would do ! !

    2. ...or add an Arley SS kit.
      (can't post pic?)

    3. Somebody did convert it from rubber to (deleted) chrome bumpers.
