The name "Midget" was used by MG in 1929, regarding the MG's first baby sports car, the M-Type. However, between 1961 and 1979 the Midget became its own Marque that offered sport motoring at an affordable cost. Although similar in appearance to the Austin Healey Sprite, Midget enthusiasts were drawn to the roadster's better performance, pin sharp handling, and improved throttle response. With a total four versions built throughout the Midget's production span, this 1977 model is part of the last version produced. Physical changes that distinguished this version from its predecessor included large black plastic bumpers and increased ride height, all of which were implemented to meet US federal regulations. An anti-roll bar was also added to help with the vehicle's higher center of gravity. Additionally, the A-series engine was replaced which proved a better coping mechanism for the increasing emission regulations of that time.
