1977 MG Midget Fully Restored - New Hood, New Interior, Full Respray, New Tyres, Engine Rebuild 3k ago, New MOT
This late model (GAN 6) 1977 MG Midget is in excellent order throughout. Our MOT tester today commented that the underside is very good indeed with no patch welding or repairs and that the restoration has 'been carried out correctly'. It is currently showing 83,591 miles and over the last few years has covered very little mileage - in 2016 it had covered 83,547.
This car has been taken back to a bare shell and completely rebuilt. There is a CD with the car of the entire process - the cost to do this runs into the thousands and you can be sure of an entirely solid car. It is MOT exempt but we have, as stated above, put it through an MOT today and it passed with no advisories.
In 2013 this car had an engine rebuild to run on unleaded and there are bills for more than £1500 reflecting this work. The mileage at the time was 83105 therefore in real terms the engine is still running in. The receipts for the upkeep of this stunning car reflect the car and attention it has had. The hood is as new and everything from the track rod ends, bushes and trim has been replaced recently. It drives very well indeed and is not far from a concourse car.
It has a very nice grey leather interior with matching carpets. Under the hood is excellent as is the boot. As already stated there is no rust on this car - you can jump in and enjoy the 1500CC at its best.
This car represents great value for money and is ready to go.
1983 Mercedes 280 SL R107 - New MOT and ready to go
This 1983 Mercedes 280SL R107 6 cylinder has been with its current owner for the last seven years although in that time it has passed to his business partner and back again. Our client, the current owner, is the director of our local golf club. We was talking classic cars at the 19th hole when he mentioned this car may be available for sale.
It has been stored for some time and therefore we have now revived it from its slumber. It has had a service of oil, plugs and filters and been checked over by our mechanic before being presented for its MOT which it passed with one advisory of a slight blow in the centre exhaust. It has also had a machine polish and been under sealed.
Finished in black and in overall good condition this classic R107 has come up rather well. A recorded 114k is very low mileage for the renown Mercedes six cylinder and indeed it has only covered 1100 miles since 2006.
It drives well for a 36 year old Mercedes of this era and wafts along the road. The auto gearbox and brakes are good and the interior presents well with a little wear on the drivers seat. IT starts on the button. The dashboard is very good with one slight crack toward the window but it is hard to see. The cruise control does not currently operate and although the blower fans do work we have removed the fuse as they will not turn on and off from the dial switch - this may be due to the length of storage.
It comes with both the hard top and soft top. They are in excellent order and only today has the soft top been awoken which is in good order but does have some slight seem wear at the very top. The plastic windows are sound and clear. The key to operate the roof is also present.
Sadly there is no paperwork other than our receipts and the logbook with the car. The Gold Car Check shows no issues with the car and it used to wear the number plate SXH 1 which can only be a sign of a fastidious owner. It has had 9 previous owners. Recent work also includes brakes, fuel pump, tyres and welding to the sills which has been done correctly. It also has a new battery.
These Mercedes are rising in value and finding one that needs a little work to make perfect is a good way into ownership. It is solid underneath so it is all cosmetic work to do should you require it. The rear wing tops are solid but do have some 'orange peeling' on the paint and there are a few marks here and there in the paint. It looks largely original but has had some paint on the front nearside wing at some point. It has no recorded or obvious accident damage. The car check certificate comes with the car. The door lock on the drivers side is not working but there are 3 keys with the car.
If you are in the market for an SL with more reasonable MPG than a 500 It is well worth a look as these car are becoming rare and it is ready to use but could be improved as required.
A sure fire investment here - the Pagoda models of only 15 years earlier are heading towards three figures. They really do not make them like this anymore.

Late 1976 MG Midget 1500 - Restored and stunning throughout - New MOT - Checked and ready to go!
Welcome to the sale of this late 76 (30th December 1976) MG Midget 1500. This great little car has it all: excellent paint, excellent interior, excellent underneath and excellent under the bonnet and in the boot.
Residing with the last owner since 1995 (it was a present for the ladies 50th birthday) this car has done less than 5k miles since and only used in the dry and then put back in its heated garage. It is currently showing 82400 miles and the MOT history reflects 79574 in 1997.
When purchased in the late 90s it was sent to be restored to original specification. The extensive (20+) photo record shows that the car was stripped to a shell and completely rebuilt from the bare shell up. No expense was spared to make this the lucky ladies' dream car. She has used it only in the dry since and cherished it. She has only sold it because she can longer drive. At a cost for the bodywork alone at £2400 in 1990s prices this car represents great value for money.
Finihed in 2k Brooklands Green (as original) it is ready to show, It has just been serviced and has a years MOT with no advisories. It has four new quality tyres and the hood is as new. It was only put up in the winter whilst the car was stored. The interior is also stunning, The seats have been finished in black and the carpets present very well.
The resin bumpers are in excellent order. If you wanted to take a project to this level it would surely cost more than the asking price just for the work - that is without buying the car in the first place.
This MG drives as you would expect for a car of this level and the engine sounds very good indeed. With all the bills back to the 90s and photos of work carried out you can be sure that this investment will last for many years to come. These later edition cars are gaining a sound following and with the 1500 cc 4 cylinder they move along very well.
This car is tax and MOT free (but has an MOT for peace of mind).

1968 MG Midget - 2 previous owners - last owner for 22 years - completely rebuilt 4000 miles ago - has to be one of the best available anywhere - has won numerous owners club awards
Welcome to the sale of this 2 previous owner 71000 miles from new fully rebuilt 1968 MG Midget. This is an outstanding car that took three years to rebuild to original specification.
No expense has been spared and all the detailing is correct. It even has the original dealer tag which of course matches the engine and chassis. This car was purchased 22 years ago by the current owner. It was purchased from a family member who owned the car from the 1970s.
The current owner kept a photographic record of the restoration work (which is available to view and of course comes with the car) and it demonstrates the extent of work carried out. The car was taken back to a bare shell and anything that needed replacing with original parts was replaced and anything that could be stripped and cleaned was completed. It was very important to the owner that the car remained as original as possible and to that extent this is why this car stands out form the rest. The detailing in the engine bay is outstanding as are the door shuts, boot, underneath and interior.
This Midget has a current clear MOT until July 2020 even though it is exempt and it starts on the button. It has never had an advisory since its rebuild back in 2000 - 2003. The engine was rebuilt and an unleaded head added along with copper brake lines in the name of safety. Everything else is standard as per the 1968 design. This car has won numerous awards at both local car shows and through the MG Owners Club. The cups and rosettes are available to the new owner if required.
The underneath of this car is as good as the top. It has never been out in the rain. The 2 pack paint is in the original colour and has been very well done. The wings and doors were replaced during the restoration with top quality parts and the bonnet and boot are original to the car. The interior is in excellent order with the addition of inertia seat belts making this a usable car with safety in mind.
The original lap belts can be purchased should a new owner wish. The hood is as new and is only folded up in the winter whilst in storage to stop any sagging. It comes with a tonneau cover as well. The tool kit is complete. The owners handbooks are present.
This MG is an investment level car that has to be viewed to be believed. It has been used very sparingly since the rebuild - covering only 4000 miles in the last 15 years. It has been regularly serviced throughout this time and is an amazing piece of British motoring history.
We believe this car is one of the best on the market - it is not far from a concourse entry and it would cost at least 15k to rebuild one - not even including the time and effort - to this level. If you are in the market for a near perfect car that will stand out at any show and never lose any of your investment then this could be the one for you.
Our client is motivated to sell to the right person but having owned the car for so long is keen to wait for the right buyer. Viewings are available by appointment.

Type 2 1975 VW Camper LHD subject to a 40k + engineering challenge - a unique combination of transport ready to go. Offers around 24500 will secure.
With popularity of the new VW Transporter vans being used as everyday transport this vehicle makes sense - classic style engineered for today's roads and an investment that can only increase in value.
This VW is ready to tour and travel anywhere in style. The van has been subject to a full restoration 8 years ago so is very solid throughout and has been upgraded with captains chairs both to the front and rear. It started life as a transporter. It is LHD and was registered in the UK in the early 90s.
The cabin is in excellent condition with bespoke door trims and seats finished in leather. The dashboard has been restored and is also in excellent order. In October 2016 engine was upgraded to a water cooled Subaru 2l engine with 115hp (taken from a Subaru Legacy). The engine and gearbox conversion was completed by TSR (http://www.tsrengineconversions.co.uk) and of course all the receipts are available.This conversion cost nearly 10k and the van has covered less than 28k since ( Current total mileage on dashboard showing 332000 and the engine was converted at 285000 )It cruises happily at 70 mph with the trailer attached - there are not many VW vans that can....
Our client selling this vehicle has an extensive history in VW engineering and has built three others over the years. Our client used this vehicle in shopping centres to promote and sell his art work but now works online so the van and trailer combination needs a new home,
The graphics can easily be removed (and your own design applied if you wish) and it has an MOT until July 2020. There are a few areas that need to be addressed ( bottom of passenger and the sliding door ) to make it mint but as with all classic vehicles it is best viewed. Our client is open to negotiation.
This can be used as it or it could converted and presents a unique retail opportunity should you wish to use it for the myriad of VW meets throughout the season - perhaps a coffee or beer bar? The pop up on the trailer offers plenty of space for standing and the van has a fitted side awning so you could even use it at an event in the rain.
The trailer is a one off construction made from a VW Bay Window 1978 and built on a professional chassis. It is trimmed to an excellent standard and comfortably sleeps 3 whilst the van would sleep another 2. Again, there are not many 4 berth VW vans around. There is also an awning to the side of the lead vehicle which makes for a very useful space on site, The total weight of the trailer is 800kg. It has an Aluminium Chassis designed and made by the bus factory Solaris. It has an Alko tow-bar and Knott brakes were new when fitted in 2012
Inside the trailer is a double bed ( 165cm wide ) in the rear and single ( 60cm wide ) bed/seat. The front section has a loading compartment with the 2.5” oak tabletop with enough space to fit a small round sink or the gas cooker. There is lots of storage underneath the beds and additional space in the engine compartment which means you can pack for four in comfort.
There is also small car battery with an intelligent charger inside the trailer for lights and sockets etc. The trailer has an original Devon full length side elevating roof which is very handy and makes the inside space totally usable. This trailer also has a Bluetooth hands free telephone connection - parrot MKi 920 and genuine black&white leather interior. The vehicle has two full size spare wheels.
This unique vehicle is ready for a new owner and ready to use. The MOT is until July 2020 and any issues have been addressed so you have peace of mind in your travels. The history with this imported van is extensive and all of the conversion work has been carried out by a well established conversion firm. The bus ans trailer can be bought separately but an offer of around £24500 would buy both vehicles.
Our client can be reached at email@example.com
The vehicle is located near Stansted Airport, Essex.
We can assist with delivery at cost.
Yellow 1978 MG Midget - 4 owners - 50k - FSH
This October 1979 MG Midget has only 4 owners from new. It has an extensive service history all the way back to the early 1980's that back up the mileage which is now 50800.
The last change of owner was in 2002 when the car had extensive work carried out - it was then dry stored for the next 15 years! When we bought it we went through the car and changed the fuel lines and pump, front calipers and pads and put it in for an MOT which it passed with no advisories.
The interior is in excellent condition with a working period radio. Underneath this car is very solid indeed as it is in the inner wings and the usual places these rust. The A pillars and joins in top of the wings are solid. The only places this car could be improved is at the bottom of the doors which as the pictures show has a few little bubbles.
This is a car that you can drive right away and be confident of no issues and improve over time if you wanted to.
It has a full stainless steel exhaust with the rear muffler deleted so really sounds the part of a classic MG and with a one inch lowered suspension it handles very well indeed.
There are bills for a clutch in 1999 which may seem a long while ago but it has covered less than 5000 miles since. There is a spare wheel and original jack and wheel brace. There are bills for everything that this car has ever had done.
The hood, whilst intact, does have some holes in the rear quarters and is a little faded. It can be replaced and these are around £400 fitted. We can arrange a new hood if required for the additional cost of the hood and fitting.
This is a great little car with a good history that is ready to go. It will be tax free in a few weeks and it has an MOT until next September. It of qualifies for classic insurance.
If you are looking for a good example of the MG Midget which you could tinker with and improve then this may well be the one for you. Come and have drive - we promise you will like it!
