the MG midget Register Holland

MG midgets in the Netherlands
Between 1961 and 1972 Molenaar Automobielen in Amersfoort, the Dutch importer for Morris and MG, imported 430 MG Midgets to the Netherlands. Some went overseas again as military personnel stationed at air force bases like Soesterberg shipped them across to the US.

Molenaar Automobielen also assembled Midgets at their plant in Amersfoort. These were the so called Completely Knocked Down cars. They were painted and assembled in the country of destination. This was done for cost reasons primarily due to stringent tax regulations at the time. Several of these CKD cars were exported to Belgium after assembly.

Over the years many original Dutch cars disappeared due to the harsh climate in Northern Europe. However large numbers of MG midgets were imported from the United States, where 80% of the total MG Midget production was shipped. Currently there are approximately 900 MG Midgets in the Netherlands. Please see the register tab for detailed statistics.

Our scope & activities
The MG Midget Register Holland primarily records data on Dutch Midgets. Defined as cars that came here originally or were imported later. However to get a complete picture on the numbers of Midgets still existing today we will register every Midget we come across. Therefore you'll find a vast numbers of cars in our databases that have no relation to our country.

Our register records data on cars, historic events and photos & advertisements of MG Midgets. By means of this website we hope to share this information with owners and enthusiasts as best as possible.
