It's a lot of sports car fora little price.

These days you don't have to look
very farto find a small, economical car.
But to find one that's economical
and a pure-bred, SCCA-winning
sports car-well, that leaves you a
choice of about one.
MG Midget.
Just the right size for you, your
friend and enough gear to see you
through a weekend.
You'll discover that the real
meaning of "sports motoring" has
nothing to do with -mile strips at
abandoned airports.
It has to do with roads that take
to the hills where the scenery and
fresh air are. Roads that turn and twist
and meander down the other side,
faithful to the contours of nature.
That's where terms like rack-and-
pinion steering, front disc brakes,
race-seasoned suspension and a
close-ratio 4-speed gearbox, start
making sense to the uninitiated.
And you'll wonder how you

ever drove without full sports car
instrumentation: an electric tachometer,
separate gauges for oil pressure,
water temperature and fuel level.
There's even a trip odometer.
MG Midget sports other standards
like a 1275 c.c. overhead valve
engine, mag-style wheels, radial-ply
tires, leather steering wheel cover,
reclining bucket seats, full carpeting
and three-blade windshield wipers.
What do you pay for this small
economical sports car? Of all the
proven winners now in national SCCA
sports car racing, it's the one with
the lowest price tag.
A little for a lot of sports car.
