Midget Mk I/Sprite Mk II hardtop available



Senior Member
Oops - sorry for the mis-post. Anyways, it's a factory hardtop; needs paint and seals; "glass" is present and usable. I'm in Seattle, WA; and am more interested in it going to a good home than the price. I'm not prepared to hassle with packaging and shipping. Anyone interested? Let me know at philip(dot)s(dot)jones(at)comcast(dot)net.

Sneak it onto a Boeing truck in Seattle and give it a 787 part number. After all it is 'glass. Should match up just fine.


I could bring my MK2 Sprite over on 10/1 and see if it fits.
(that's the date of our next NOS HIT right?)

Maybe someone there could help me with MK2 Sprite dash wiring.
I wanted to bring the green one over though, it has more serious needs.

Maybe there's a way to get both cars there, I'll see if SWMBO wants to join in and spend the day with a bunch of crazy car guys.

which years fit which cars. I have a bugeye I want a hard top for, used or new if new hardtops are available.

Hi all!

BillM - Here's my understanding: I think that there were three fitments for hardtops for the Spridget series. First the Bugeye, which had a unique rear deck profile; then the MkII Sprite/MkI Midget, which, for some reason, has little "notches" at the belt-line, just behind the door, about 6 inches long. Then there's "everything else", which is the same as the MkII Sprite/MkI Midget, but without the little notches. So based on that (perhaps incorrect) understanding, this one fits everything after the Bugeye, but is only "correct" for the MkII Sprite/MkI Midget.

Mighty - I don't think it would work for the bugeye, due to the different profile on the rear deck.

Rick - It should be great on your MkII Sprite, though, Rick! For you I make an especial price. And 10/01 is the date! See you then.



I've tried a couple Bugeye hardtops on my MK2 and they didn't fit.
It would be interesting to get this defined.

uh oh...




Phil, you could buy my MK2 Sprite for your hardtop!!

Phil, you're close, but not quite. The one with the "notches" is for a Mark III Sprite/ Mk II Midget, 1964-1966, the first of the roll up window cars. 1967's onward take the top like yours. I thought that BE's fit the MK I Midgets with side curtains, but Rick is saying otherwise, though I <span style="font-style: italic">think</span> there are "long" and "short" versions of BE tops.


I have tried a long and a short version and neither was "right".
Both the ones I tried were aftermarket non standard BE tops so that probably has a lot to do with it.
