Historical Perspective: Cecil Kimber introduced the M Type Midget in 1928 at the fall motor show in London. His concept was to make a simple, inexpensive, and competitive sports car for everyone. This little car served as the basis for some of MG’s speed record cars as well as many of the race cars that followed.

Investment Potential: The M-Type was the very first Midget and is relatively scarce as there are believed to be only 20 in the U.S. For the serious restorer, reproduction ash frames are available. This should be a very good investment. (Chances are, no one on your block will have one.)
