a TON of midget and Sprite parts!!!!!

OK I just joined because I inherited everything in my granddads garage. He had a 68 sprite. There is almost 2 cars worth of parts, i mean, transmissions, lights, convertible racks, drive shafts, a 1275cc motor, axels, wheels, steering wheels, bumpers, doors, a windshield and much much more!
I have done a little research on ebay to know the value of everything and was thinking about putting it all on there but I have a question: is all this stuff interchangable between the midgets and the sprite? from the headlights, to the gauge, and dash and tranny and all? OR is just some interchangable? I am willing to sell some to you guys or all I guess since ebay is sort of a pain. None of this stuff is show stuff but it all seems to be very usable. I am a bike guy and have no use for all of it.
Any help would be great.
Than ks so much,
Porkchop
PS I am located in hedgesville West Virginia

There were different engines (all A series but different cc) over the years and Mk1 (Bugeye) Sprite obviously had different body, the dash changed, but if you had a 68 Sprite and a 68 Midget it would only badges and trim that were different.

There are on line catalogues if you wanted ti check individual parts (Moss I think have one)

John, it's all online at mossmotors.com, of course what Moss wants for some of this stuff,and what the market value on used is whole different ballgame, but Ebay will give you good indcators for what the stuff is worth. Oh, you did a good thing by coming here, getting this stuff to people in the hobby that will put it to good use, is I'm sure what your grandfather would have wanted.

Tell me about it Jack! I am currently deployed in the desert, haven't logged on to the site in months, and this is the first thread I read! If I were home, I would consider driving to take a look... I mean, Dayton isn't THAT far away :smile:
