JIM & LINDA'S 1973 MIDGET

BASIC BRITISH-SPRIDGET OF THE MONTH

We bought our Damask Red 1973 Midget in 2001 from a older gentleman in mid-Kansas. It has many upgrades that I have added! The above picture is of me in the '73 Midget at the 2005 GOBMC All British Show in Carthage, Missouri!

The engine has been upgraded with a Longman GT7 head, roller rockers, HS4 twin carbs, Maniflow steel tube intake, Maniflow LCB header, recurved 25D4 dizzy, Pertronix ignition, Lucas Sports Coil, Accel solid copper plug wires and an Alloy rocker cover.

The suspension has metalic front pads with cross-drilled and slotted rotors. The rear features Kevlar rear shoes and a 3:70-1 rear end.

The interior has custom seat covers, older style Sprite door panels, 10,000 RPM Smiths tach, 13 inch leather steering wheel, all new upholstery, new carpet, and a center arm console.

The top speed at the May 2006 Chanute Chute Out was 94 mph!
