SPRITES AND MIDGETS THE COMPLETE STORY
WRITTEN BY ANDERS DITLEV CLAUSAGER

Beginning with the much-loved ‘Frogeye’ Sprite in the 1950s, and ending with the closure of the MG factory and the end of Midget production in 1979, the ‘Spridget’ has been one of Britain’s favourite cars. Designed to fill an obvious gap in the market for an affordable sports car, the Sprite and Midget have not lost their attraction for the sporting motorist on a budget. This is the complete history of the Austin-Healey Sprite and the MG Midget, from a renowned marque expert. Lavishly illustrated in colour and black & white, this will appeal to Healey and MG fans everywhere.
