Hi Todd. I was just thumbing thru some book in my Library today and reading some old road test info originally published in the Australian magazine Modern Motor about 1970. It mentioned the fact that their MG Midgets (and Sprites too I'd guess) arrived in Australia as Completely Knocked Down kits (CKD). The kits would have to be assembled locally. I've also read before that at one time MG shipped cars in CKD kits to Belgium to be assembled. I think they also did this to some other countries. Article also said that some cars had heaters, some not. Sometimes it was a surprise what came in the kit.Bob.

Many of the British car manufacturers sent cars out like this around the world to be assembled. There was even a Volvo plant in Nova Scotia, Canada that received cars for final assembly 1963 until 1989.My car according to the documentation was custom ordered with wire wheels and two windscreen wipers.
