1973 MG Midget

Twin Cam Toyota 1973 MG Midget

This is the ultimate street car, autocross or a great track day car. Comes with two sets of wheels, both sets identical, with Hoosier tires mounted on them. This car has competed in many SCCA autocrosses, NASA Time Trials, and open track days. This winter the car got a new clutch installed which has not had any track or autocross time on it. The Crow 5-point racing belts are dated April 2013 and are up to date to any racing regulations. You will not find a car with the build quality or engineering as this car.

Comes with a spare set of wheels and tires, I also have a couple extra tires if you want them as well.
