The first version, announced at the end of June was essentially a slightly more expensive badge-engineered version of the MkII Austin-Healey Sprite deluxe version. The original 'frogeye' Sprite had been introduced specifically to fill the gap in the market left by the end of production of the MG T-type Midget as its replacement, the MGA had been a significantly larger and more expensive car with greater performance. Many existing MG buyers turned to the Sprite to provide a modern low-cost sports car and so a badge-engineered MG version reusing the Midget name made sense.

This MG Midget was acquired by the seller two years ago as an unfinished project with a replacement 1,cc inline-four and 4-speed manual transmission. The body is finished in an older Riviera Blue repaint with a white racing stripe. Chips and other flaws are shown in the gallery below along with overspray in the engine bay and interior. The seller notes that the passenger-side tail light area has been repaired with filler as detected with use of a magnet.

I have documented this car elsewhere on the web but am finally going to build a GRM build thread as suggested in my Metal Box Flare Thread. The car is a MG Midget that was nearly restored prior to being completely submerged in a flood. I pulled the stock engine and put in a 12a rotary. I blew up several rear ends before deciding new parts were in order.
