“Midge”
I got her from my brother years ago who got her from the original owner. He found the nose on e bay years ago and painted her primrose yellow and gave her to me. Unassembled. I put her together, and was going to sell, because I didn't like the driving position. I opted to shorten the steering column, which got me prompted to do more. I recovered the seats to complement the orange paint I had. She's been de-seamed. All chrome removed. No top. No heater. Shaved door handles. No bumpers. Windows removed. Tube shocks all around. Freeflow exhaust and header. Oak dashboard with stock gauges. A handmade steering wheel. Handmade interior panels. A rollbar. All smog controls removed. An aftermarket console I found on ebay that some guy said didn't fit his Midget or Healey and went right in. I'd eventually like to put in a Toyota 1600 4age twin cam and 5-speed that I haven't gotten around to rebuilding. Other than that, I drive her whenever I can.
