My Turbo Compliments of coopdog theminiforum. We are doing all the hard work for you, before LOC8APART finding car parts online was a lengthy painful process, that required days and days of looking for the Austin Mini all all part required.

Well, technically the Austin-Healey Sprite was first. That car rolled out of the MG factory a few years before the badge-engineered Midget debuted. But the Midget was in production for far longer —80, compared to —71 for the Sprite. And since the death of the British sports car at the end of the s, the MG Midget remains one of the two least expensive the Triumph Spitfire being the other points of entry into that segment of the classic market.
