MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Mercedes Gearbox in a Midget

Go to the eBay site and search for "MG midget Gearbox". Near the bottom of the first page there is currently an advert for a 6 speed gearbox from a Mercedes GLA which says it is suitable for a Midget. There is also a list of compatible cars and the Midget is listed here as well.

Surely this is a mistake. If a six speed box can be fitted into a Midget for under 300 I an at the front of the queue to buy the one advertised!

I think they must have ticked every box for compatibility when listing. It also says it fits Austin Mini, Austin Princess, etc., etc.
