  Every now and then (usually separated by years) I consider selling my '79 Midget. Now is one of those times again. In the past I was disappointed with the low values on these cars, so I held onto it, figuring it served me better than the paltry money it would bring. Now I have quite a bit of work to do on my two big Healeys and could use the cash to help out.

I found the car in '96 with 10K original miles. I have put on another 25k or so (will have to check for exact). When I purchased it I replaced tires and other things that suffered from non-use. It has been a very good running car for me. After the last time I considered selling and changed my mind, I decided to have some fun with the car. This led to some changes from its very original state. I added headers and changed out the Stromberg for dual SUs. The current muffler is a glass pack. I have a NOS Stebro exhaust I will consider including with the car depending on sales price. The latest change I made was shared with this group a short while back. I made a wood dash unit and matching steering wheel. The original, non-cracked dash will go with the car.

Overall, the car is in excellent condition. The driver seat has a tear at the top that I caused by resting my hand there while getting into the car. There is a crease on the left side where the door opened into it. My son was rolling it out of the garage with the door open. It has a stereo radio and tape player that I had put in. The car is white with black interior and black stripes down the sides. The top is only a few years old and has spent that time mostly folded in the garage.
I will take a new series of pictures if anyone is interested. I'm offering to this group before going the dreaded ebay route. The car is located in the Charleston area of South Carolina. I drove it here from New Jersey when we made the move in 2001. It ran flawlessly the entire 750 mile trip. I believe it can be driven anywhere with confidence.

A contribution to the health and welfare of my big Healeys in the amount of $4000 will be much appreciated and will also get you the Stebro exhaust.
