MIDGET BUY­ING TIPS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Epic Battles -

1 Mid­gets rot ev­ery­where, in­clud­ing on the dou­bles kinned bon­net lead­ing edge. Be­ware plated-over chas­sis box-sec­tions, which can fes­ter un­seen, but don’t dis­miss a frilly, but me­chan­i­cally sound car – parts back-up is sec­ond to none.

2 The packed en­gine bay means tem­per­a­tures can soar in traf­fic. An elec­tric fan and mod­ern ra­di­a­tor are well worth con­sid­er­ing.

3 The me­chan­i­cal fuel pump sits in the en­gine bay – con­sider fit­ting a more ef­fi­cient elec­tric pump and re­lo­cat­ing it nearer the petrol tank. Elec­tronic ig­ni­tion is a good call, too.
