This MG Midget MkIII started life in March 1970 as a green example, but was repainted Colorado Red in June 1980. It has a comprehensive maintenance history that includes an engine and clutch rebuild in 1983 at 21,000 miles, a bare metal repaint in 1985 at 25,300 miles, and a Falcon stainless steel exhaust with lifetime guarantee. The cylinder head was overhauled in 1989, and the carburettors rebuilt in 1997, with the shock absorbers and rear springs done at the same time. In 2012, at 42,985 miles, a new fuel tank and pump were fitted, followed by a reconditioned gearbox in 2014. Other work in recent years includes a 13‑row oil cooler, engine mountings, rocker cover, clutch master and slave cylinders, brake servo and rear luggage rack. A new hood has also been fitted.

The current mileage is shown on the odometer as 43,470 miles. As an historic vehicle, the Midget no longer requires an MoT; the last one for this car expired on 8 July 2019.

The paperwork file includes the current and previous V5Cs plus bills and records dating back to 1980 and a selection of MoTs back to 1979.
