My sister in-law has a MG Midget that has been sat in a dry garage for three years. What should she do with limited access , tools and technical skills?
Her intention is to finally advertise because she has no garage for storage.

If it's complete and largely unmolested, and she's not set up to do any work on it herself, selling it as-is may be best. Perhaps some basic checks such as will the engine turn freely etc.

When it comes to a car for restoration etc, I would far, far rather have one that hasn't had someone fiddling with it beforehand.

As far as I know it's not been molested and from memory stood really well in a maroon colour. It's a late model with rubber bumpers and ran very well all be it several years ago.
She is going to take some pictures tomorrow and see what state it's in.
