Gold Convertible

The Gold Convertible was originally launched in 1989 to such acclaim that CAR magazine gave it pride of place on its front cover. Based on the unique Midas all-GRP monocoque and using the mechanical components from an Austin or MG Metro, the Gold still sets the standard for a practical small sports car that can be used everyday.

It also uses the Metro wiring loom and many other Metro components, so the kit build mainly consists of removing the parts from the donor car, cleaning and/or renovating them before fitting them to the Midas
