21 MG Midget
PRICE RANGE £500-7500
It might not have the get-up-and-go of its bigger MGB brother, but for affordable classic drop-top motoring the Midget takes a lot of beating. With plenty out there, snapping up the first one available needn’t be necessary – there’s enough choice to allow unhurried looking at a good few before buying. Earlier models have cleaner, chrome-bumpered looks, but while later, rubber-bumpered cars might lose a bit on the
visuals and handling, they’ll still pootle along nicely thanks to the 1.5-litre engine. All of them are easily maintained and parts are very readily available, even at many independent motor factors.
