Years before MG grabbed the name, Barrett produced its own Midget. A politically incorrect name by modern mores, the ‘Model 60’ Midget was a special-use invalid car designed for people up to 4ft 6in (137 cm) tall. It was designed for one person only, although there was space at the side of the seat for a folded wheelchair.
Its glassfibre bodywork (always in green) was slightly enlarged over the Minor and had a front-hinged door, two headlamps and a convertible roof. All production was bought by the Ministry of Health, but the Midget was axed in 1968 when the authorities declared that smaller drivers should use the Tippen Delta.
Barrett Midget and similar vehicles are now banned from public roads and have been replaced by specially adapted regular cars.
