A modified MG Midget body is placed on the frame of a 1977-1979 Ford Thunderbird or Mercury Cougar, the donor car. The engine from the donor car, usually a 302, is replaced approximately 30 inches towards the rear of the car. The drive shaft is shortened and the steering shaft is lengthened to accommodate the relocation of the engine and transmission. (Fuel injection engines and over-drive transmission are available as an option).
