Here in New Jersey, with a 289 almost fitting under the bonnet, is a Midget with one of the classiest interiors I've ever seen on a custom car.

Burgundy leather. The gearlever position is encouraging as it indicates that the engine is set well back, good balance. Good that is, so long as there's space for one's feet.

It has a digital dash. I don't like digital instruments, but it does look very well integrated.

Tidy under the bonnet

The exterior, Khaki and black. Mmm. Different.

Well described and presented, on BaT. There is a reserve. From the comments, it might be $25k. Worth it?

Monte, the builder, had it at BV8 last year and it attracted a lot of attention, deservedly so.
I sat in it.

I'll be following this one on BAT.

Bear in mind he is a short man. But then if you drive a Midget you have to be.
