Shipping available anywhere for additional cost

This is one of the first M422a1 Mighty Mites... very early serial number, just after the 422 series.

Nice original Mighty Mite Project... most every hard to find part is there.  Complete non molested mites are getting hard to find.  The advantage of buying an unrestored mighty mite is that you have a chance to do a good job on the vehicle.  Unfortunately all too many mighty mites were restored by "amateur restorers" who really shouldn't be doing it...the end result if often a poorly repaired vehicle that ends up untimately being worth less than what it could attain.. Getting running, painting and flipping a vehicle is not restoring a vehicle....and unfortunately it shows, especially to the next owner, but often after the purchase.  Sometimes these vehicles are so poorly "restored" that it isn't economically viable or practical  to fix them correctly. All too often this has happended in the Mighty Mite world.  (see link)

13,xxx original miles. Original unit markings and hood number found. A lot of original parts including the 1960's tires! former fish and game unit has never had a civilian owner.

New Front Bumper....90% of so of the mites out there have mangled front bumpers,  and if replaced they are usually done with a poor substitute. This one is OEM correct and brand new.

Also has NOS tailgate, NOS top bows and the correct hard to find seat backs, correct fire extinguisher and mount....

Will need full restoration, has been sitting for years. but is a very good candidate... You will have something very unique when you are done.

Comes with a NOS top , (really just a pattern, since it is so old)  and a few NOS parts, master cylinder,  NOS engine gasket kit, New rear tail light rubbers and a few other bits.

With a little work, this could really be a nice mighty mite. $6500 FOB Boise, Idaho  Complete with Idaho Title.  CONTACT
