Description

Hard top for Austen-Healy Mark I and II and MG Midget. Photo caption: Unusual hardtop for BMC sports twins. This new hardtop for the MG Midget and Austin-Healey Marks 1 and 2, is unusual in that it is of double skinned construction. It has a better internal finish than single-skin types, and gives improved insulation. The hardtop is made by Peasmarsh Reinforced Plastics from Bakelite polyester resin reinforced with glass fibre. This item is part of the MoDiP BXL collection.
