1963 MG Midget

1963 was a big year for the two-seater MG Midget Roadster, as disc brakes in the front were not standard equipment. Under the bonnet was a larger 67 cubic-inch four-cylinder engine that offered 55 horsepower, an increase of five horsepower. To cope with the larger engine, the MG engineers enlarged the clutch diameter for the four-speed manual gearbox. Top speed was in the neighborhood of 92 mph, up from 85 mph the prior year.

The 1962 and 1963 Midget sold for $1940; pricing went up by five dollars the following year.

The production of the Mark I (GAN2) Midget lasted from October of 1962 to 1964, with a total of 9,601 examples being built.
