WHAT WE RECKON

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - LIVING WITH CLASSICS - CHRIS HOPE FEA­TURES ED­I­TOR

‘Mid­get are al­ways fun to drive with lively per­for­mance be­ly­ing its small en­gine. But by far the best ad­di­tion to this restora­tion is that modern Ford gear­box – hav­ing five all-syn­chro­mesh gears trans­forms th­ese cars. Ac­cel­er­a­tion is ex­tremely good; the Mid­get keeps pace with modern traf­fic even when go­ing up­hill. It’s a thor­oughly en­joy­able drive.
