SOLD 2 Mites FS w Titles, extra parts SOLD

Post by ccdoran » Fri May 17, 2019 7:15 pm

These Mites were for sale in a post of mine from about a year ago. I decided to relist them with a new, streamlined post. I bought these with the intent of restoration but ultimately decided to sell these Mites because I would rather have the funds and space available to put towards my other projects. I have these listed on a few other internet sites, but at a price not nearly as low as on here. I like to take care of fellow G'ers. The price is pretty firm, but I might be open to reasonable trades. I am always in search of an early Slat block (at or around 103200), original F-marked rear seat, a decent original MB/GPW summer top and/or winter enclosure, any of which could be used towards the sale. I could potentially deliver or meet for exchange somewhere in between your location and mine.

The body metal on these vehicles is aluminum, so there is no body panel rust.

The blue Mite is an M422. It is very complete, and really only needs seats and a pintle. A driver's seat and pintle hook are on the other Mite, so those could easily be swapped over. The windshield is technically incorrect, as it is the M38 style. However there are two correct Might Mite 2nd pattern windshields included in the sale. (The most noticeable difference is where the windshield wiper arms protrude in relation to the windshield hood bumpers. On the M38 ws they are centered within each bumper. The correct Mite ws has the wipers protrude inboard of the bumpers.)
The body number is 440
The frame number looks to be 1727
I cannot read the engine number

The silver/aluminum Mite is an M422A1. Included is a correct windshield, a voltage regulator, and a generator. The front-end body aluminum panels are complete and included. This Mite would need some suspension work, as well as some front-end steering/suspension pieces to be complete in that area. Because it is missing some minor suspension components and the front aluminum body pieces have been removed (but are included) it simply looks like less of a vehicle. It is missing the front right wheel and suspension parts. There are also some spare/extra parts included, including a spare engine.
The body number is 3408
The frame number is 3248
The engine number is 1769

The Mites are located just north of Chicago. Both Mites have titles. The internal condition of all three engines is unknown. Please PM me with any questions or offers. I'll do my best to answer your questions, but I'm not a Mite guy, so my knowledge is very limited. I am not willing to part these out. The M422 is almost 100% complete and would be an easy enough restoration on its own, but paired with the A1 you'd probably only need a passenger seat, rear seats, (and if you so chose) top bows and canvas to complete it.
