Okay, here is the deal.
I have an Orange 71 Midget that I was going to get going as a DD without too much concern over cosmetics.
Unfortunate that it currently has no title, I may be able to obtain one. Being that old may not be needed in some states. Bill of sale.
Been sitting a long time, interior is pretty bad but the body is very strait with original paint, minimal small rust spots, and the 1275 engine is not stuck.
Rib-Case trans, the light type chrome bumpers, "Pillow" dash (Of course it's bad) and the special edition wheels.
I also have several loose parts buyer may choose substitutions from, I already set aside a better bonnet.
Originally had no intention to sell it but now find myself scheming to get a 69 MGB-GT in what looks to me like Kawasaki Barf-Green. surprise
Somewhat short on funds even if I max the credit card and dubious that the Classic Car lenders will do a sub-$6,000.00 loan.

So the Midget is for sale until either someone grabs it, I find another way to get the B, or I give up on buying the B.

Pics in the AM.

Pics, car is still dirty but very complete, never seriously bent, and the engine turns over.
Blank canvas for your next build.
I have a good radiator mount and radiator for it too.

Midget engine.

I have a better bonnet for it.

All original paint!

Rear.

I pulled most of the carpet.

I have had three of those in my lifetime. That looks very tempting. Good thing it is far away.

Did you know you could pull a 1275 with two guys and no engine hoist? We did it!
