Now we have companies like Frontline Costello offering all manner of things like five speed gearboxes, modern front end steering and suspension units with multi link rear ends, and engine swaps utilising the fuel injected "K" series engine.

Description: The new Midget differed from the Sprite only in its grille design, badging, colour options and having both leather seats and more external chrome trim as standard to justify its higher purchase price. In August , the compression ratio on North American engines was reduced to 8. Wind-up windows were fitted to the higher topped doors making the car more weathertight and individual bucket seats used in the fully carpeted interior. Also in this year, a Triumph steering rack was fitted, giving a gearing that was somewhat lower than earlier Midgets.
