From the 1958 'Frogeye' Austin-Healey Sprite to the last rubber-bumpered MG Midget of 1979, all 14 distinct versions of these much loved cars are studied, with a special section on Innocenti models. This is a re-issue of one of the most popular titles from the celebrated Original series, accepted by classic car owners, buyers and enthusiasts as the definitive source of advice on correct original and authentic specifications and equipment, drawn from factory records, parts lists and catalogues, as well as the accumulated knowledge of the most respected restorers.
This is an all-new book written by an expert on Midgets and Sprites and featuring photographs that have never been seen before. In this book, the author examines the original factory specification examples of the cars and compares them with those in use today, as well as their derivatives. He also traces the evolution of the cars from the mid-1950s to the present. This includes the Austin-Healey Sprites Mk I to Mk IV and the MG Midget Mk I to Mk III, along with the 1500 MG Midget. The author also includes useful information for owners today or those who are planning to buy a Sprite or Midget, including information on buying and owning, clubs and support. Based on a thorough knowledge of the cars, this book is designed to be both informative and enjoyable to read.
That a vehicle born in the late 1950s and ending production in 1979 would still be owned and driven today was way beyond the expectations of the original manufacturer. Hence, today's Midget and Sprite owner needs to be aware of the special problems that can emerge through continued use. Just how do you look after and maintain a vehicle built last century? This book helps you identify all the things you need to be aware of to avoid trouble. The shortcomings, the odd funny noise, that little something that just does not seem quite right ... here, we sort them out. The book systematically describes all the main components of the Midget/Sprite, and details what can go wrong with each. Being able to identify simple warning signs can keep you ahead of a big repair bill - and possibly save you from being stranded at the road side.
This book is the perfect companion for the first-time or even more experienced buyer in search of an MG Midget or Austin-Healey Sprite. All the information is here to help make a clear and balanced decision, to counter the vendor's claims, and even negotiate a better price. It will guide you through a simple to use evaluation procedure, warn you of any potential pitfalls, and give guidance on finding a good example. The author has bought and sold many Midgets and Sprites over the years, and his knowledge and enthusiasm will prove a vital resource for potential buyers.
