These tax-exempt Round Wheelarch Midgets are often referred to as the most desirable cars of them all – with the pretty lines of the original car, with some of the later refinements!

This car is particularly special in that it is fitted with a Rivergate Datsun 5 speed gearbox conversion (http://www.rivergate5speed.com/). The car has an MOT until May 2016.

Here are some key features:

  • It’s fitted with electronic ignition (Lumenition)

 

  • -       K&N air filters

  • -       Extractor exhaust manifold (with Maniflow Stainless Steel Exhaust System – sounds great, but not overly loud!)

 

Prior to its recommissioning MOT in 2013, many new/recon parts fitted. These include; 

 

  • -       Speedo cable

  • -       Recon Propshaft

  • -       Alloy wheels and new tyres (Dunlop SP StreetResponse – good tread and nice and grippy)

  • -       New copper and rubber brake pipes

  • -       New wheel cylinders

  • -       New master cylinder seals

  • -       Upgraded Mintex brake pads and new shoes

  • -       Reconditioned uprated front shock absorbers

  • -       Replacement top trunnion bushes

  • -       New rear suspension bushes and drop links

  • -       Recon copper radiator with refurbished cowl, splash panels and brackets.

  • -       Refurbished heater unit with new trunking.

  • -       New water pump and thermostat housing.

  • -       New choke and bonnet release cables

  • -       Rebuilt 2 speed wiper motor with 130deg sweep

  • -       New quadoptic Halogen headlight units (nice and bright!)

  • -       Electric screen washer

  • -       Twin tone horns

  • -       Reconditioned starter motor

  • -       New interior trim and parcel shelf  with real leather  MX5 seats and Motolita leather steering wheel

  • -       LED bulbs on all the instruments (so you can actually see them at night unlike with the original bulbs!)

The car comes with two tonneau covers - with/without headrests and the hood is in good condition with clear windows. Oil pressure and water temperature are spot on. The car is VERY solid both bodily and structurally, and does not require any welding. Paintwork is good for a car of this value but don’t expect a show car finish.

 

The car runs and drives nicely, and the 5th gear really makes this car very usable indeed. It fires up healthily from cold and ticks over smoothly. The car pulls strongly and the brakes aren’t too bad either!

Nearly new wheels and tyres mean that the car handles very nicely too. The MX5 seats are very comfortable and there’s plenty of room. I’m just over 6’ and I’m very comfortable. The rest of the interior is in good order, thanks to a new carpet set and reconditioned dashboard. The hood is in good order and a hood cover is included.

All in all, this is an absolutely cracking little car that is absolutely ready to be used and enjoyed. I’ve had a lot of Midgets through my hands and this is a good one – perfect for regular use. The V5 and MOT are both present and the car is ready to drive away. There is lots of paperwork to go with the car which details everything well.
