The MG Midget is such a well-accepted classic sports car today that it seems hard to remember that its origins lay in the badge engineering perpetrated by the British Motor Corporation in the 1950s. In fact, BMC's Len Lord approached Donald Healey and asked him to design a cheap small sports car around Austin A35 mechanical components, and the result was badged as an Austin-Healey Sprite when it was announced in 1958.
In 1961 the MG Midget was reborn, and production continued until November 1979. Included are road and comparison tests, new model reports and updates plus full specifications and performance data. Models covered: Mk1, Mk2, Mk3, Mk 1500.

The regular Road Test series contain 100 pages with approximately 200 illustrations.
