1953 MG TD

This beautifully presented MG TD has come to us from one of our long term customers in Fife, Scotland. Our customer tends to keep a collection of around two or three classics at one time and likes to occasionally change. The TD was purchased in May 2015 and has very light use since. The MG was covered a few hundred faultless miles and during recent ownership has been serviced including brakes.

The TD was manufactured in 1953 and was supplied new to the US market. After 55 years in the States the car was shipped to England where it was treated to RHD conversion and five speed Type 9 gearbox as part of a major refurbishment programme. The MG was also stripped down and subject of a major restoration and has only covered around 1000 in the eight years since. The MG boasts first class leather upholstery, carpets and weather equipment and the body and paintwork are in excellent order. The engine bay is beautifully detailed, ideal for shows, rallies and events. The chrome is excellent throughout and rubbers, seals and tyres are all in very good order.

On the road 259 XUH performs perfectly well with a lovely strong 1250cc engine holding excellent oil pressure, super smooth five speed gearbox making the car ideal for long distance touring and the suspension and steering all feel tight, direct and correct. The chassis is very clean and nicely presented and the underside is sharp, clean and very impressive. This is a fabulous TD that can be driven and enjoyed on a regular basis and is just right in every respect.
