This stunning home market MG TD was first registered on the 20th March 1952. The MG left the factory in British Racing Green and was supplied new in Ayrshire. We know from the brown 'buff' logbook that EAG 586 spent much of the early 1960's in Edinburgh before moving to North Berwick, East Lothian in 1966. We have no history through the 1970's but we know from 1984 to 2001 the MG TD was with just one owner in West Lothian.
In 2001/2002 the MG TD was subject of a major body off rebuild with a large proportion of the work being carried out by Classic Restorations of Scotland. Invoices from Classic Restorations alone total over £11,000. Adding to the invoices are photographs during restoration showing the bare chassis before being sand blasted and painted. A new body shell from NTG Services was purchased prior to the rebuild and fitted onto the re-furbished chassis. The leather seats were re-trimmed, door cards replaced, new carpets fitted and full weather equipment trimmed and fitted including side screens. All chrome work was replaced and the car painted in the original colour of British Racing Green. Since restoration the MG has covered less than 1000 miles.
This is a beautifully presented, tight driving car which performs superbly with a strong engine holding very good oil pressure. The MG handles and brakes superbly offering fabulous 50's open top motoring.
