M.G. MIDGET £1,033
One of the few genuine open sports cars left in production, the M.G. Midget continues unchanged for 1974. The neat two-seater with wide doors and windup windows, is powered by a twin-carburettor version of the Austin-Morris 1275 c.c. four-cylinder engine, and has a very lively performance from modest capacity. The full-width bonnet lifts up and forward to provide easy access to the engine for tuning and maintenance, and the PVC hood can be erected in a few minutes. There is a small luggage boot, and space for extra baggage behind the seats.
M.G. MGB GT V8 £2,294
An exciting new 124 m.p.h. coupé from the home of 'Safety Fast' which uses the Rover 3500 V8 engine for exhilarating performance. Using the familiar MGB 2+2 coupé bodywork and many of the suspension components, the V8 comes with overdrive as standard. Besides being very fast and highly accelerative, MG's first eight-cylinder model has limousine flexibility and quiet running. The rear window lifts up and the rear seat folds down to accept a great deal of baggage, and the 137 (DIN) b.h.p. engine runs happily on the less-expensive three-star petrol.
