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. Prices have inched up a bit, but value trends show them staying steady for the foreseeable future. The Sprite used a modern unibody construction and offered sharp handling, while power came from a cc version of the famous BMC A-Series engine. Its success encouraged MG, which was assembling the Sprite anyway, to start producing its own version the same year.

This allows the carb to clear the hood nicely.
