1930 MG M Type Midget

This fabric bodied, two seater sports car with its pointed tail is the true MG Midget as described by Cecil Kimber.  It is fitted with the 847cc, ohc Morris engine and is, in effect, an adapted version of the Morris Minor of that era the engine having been tuned to give 20bhp.

Taking its name from Morris Garages, the Morris agency in Oxford run by Cecil Kimber in the early 1920s, the MG was this country’s first cheap and practical sports car.  It soon became the holder of innumerable international speed records for a car of its class.
