Built for nearly twenty years, the MG Midget was produced from 1961-1979. They went through a variety of changes from the Mk1, II, III and finally the Midget 1500 which was the most powerful of all the Midgets. However, with US regulation on fuel, MG had to increase the power and find a way to combat the emissions regulations that robbed power. These cars have a tremendous following and are excellent starter cars for collectors just getting into the hobby with a certain price point in mind.
