1976 MG Midget 1500 "007"
Hey there, I picked up a '72 Midget while at a parts salvage yard (looking for parts for another vehicle) I saw this white midget. I have a'76 for a driver. It had sharp wheels and the chrome bumpers. My thoughts where to disassemble the car but by nut and bolt by bolt and screw by screw to really learn these cars. Planing to keep any good parts (for resale) pull the motor/trainee And put on a stand. I know it's a 1200 not a 1500 motor, but similar non-the-less and a great learning tool. I have a few books/manuals, but hands on is still the best way to learn. And if I'm able to sell a few parts to cover the $100 purchase of the '72 then it's all good.
I've included a picture of my teacher.

Wish I could find one like that. If you are not going to use the trans or it is bad I could you the speedo gear and assembly off the side of the tranny. Happy learning!

Sure, all those kinda parts I’d be happy to pass on to members who are in need. This forum has helped me put the ‘76 back together. I’m sure you probably have helped me with a question I posted in the past.
I’d be happy to set you up.
Just give me your info, and part wanted, I’ll let you know
Pulling motor & trainie tomorrow.

Well worth the $100 spent on the car. How is the windshield?

My first Midget came to me almost like an unassembled model kit. The previous owner meticulously bagged/boxed everything up and most major components were separate from the shell. I learned a lot by returning everything to the car. In the end, I think I only had a couple items where I couldn't figure out their application.

David,

You need to buy this kind of kit. Much easier to keep the parts organized.
