1985 MG Midget Concept

In 1985 the MG Midget with its classic lines, had only been out of production for 5 years when this concept was released. The brief was to create a spiritual successor to that iconic car, however there’s always a catch, it had to utilise as many existing parts as possible.

1977 AMC AM Van Concept

Okay it’s only a concept, built at 3/4 size, but just look at it. It’s just everything about the 70’s at on 4 wheels. Oh and those wheels all driven, add in the mix those “Turbo” stickers, porthole windows and “Vanning” paint job and strips. It’s obvious what market AMC were after, young with disposable income. As you’ll guess it didn’t get past this concept, after all in 1977 with its more rounded shape it was already dated in the age of the wedge.
