Golf V6) that will fir between the footwells of a

A member of our local Brit. car club recently bought
a 65 A-H Sprite (similiar to MG Midget). The engine
was seized, possibly due to a jammed starter. (I wonder
if the starter was jammed BECAUSE the engine was
seized, but I digress.) He was wondering what engines
and/or trannies might fit. He was considering a Toyota V6
but then another member offered him a 67 Midget parts car.
He's still considering all his options. I have two questions:
What engine/tranny transplants are a good fit in a 65 Sprite?
How similiar are a 65 Sprite and a 67 Midget?
Sorry for the bonehead questions, but I'm not a MG owner.
