The wheel arch is, not the huge tubs for the larger tires.

I'm going to say no, IIRC the Midget had either a squared opening or no flare on the round opening depending on year.

Earlier ones had the square opening, later ones had a round opening with the flare from what I have seen in pictures.

This was mine, a 67 with square arches:

They may have flared it a bit more to fit the larger tire though, I think it looks pretty close to stock.

Looking at the picture of the white one it looks like a nearly stock flare. I am impressed, I had neer noticed the flare before on them

I may be a Triumph man, but I still loves me some RWD Midget. I tried to get my dad to let me buy one while I was in high school.
