This gorgeous MGTD was originally a very low miles, Arizona car which was totally rust free and clean. It has recently undergone a 3 year, frame off nuts and bolts restoration. The cost of such a restoration can well exceed $40,000. Literally no expense spared.
Each and every component of the automobile was either professionally rebuilt and or replaced with new.
The original engine and transmission since they were in excellent original condition did not require rebuild and were inspected and serviced before reinstalling.
The body was rust free to begin with but taken down to bare metal and painted professionally with 4 coats of paint to give a flawless, show quality mirror like finish. Special attention has been paid towards the finer details whereby each and every component, inside and outside of the car, has been matched to the color change.
The wood frame inside the body was replaced with entire new set purchased from Moss Motors. The one thing that stands to dry rot in the dry climate of Arizona is the wood.
The interior is genuine leather and the seats and panels are impeccably upholstered to the highest standard.
The dash is made from a special Italian Carpathian Elm wood which is hand waxed and is absolutely beautiful.
All the gauges are original.
The chrome is mostly original metal re chromed to perfection. Every chrome trim piece is perfect.
The MGTD has barely 50 miles since the restoration was completed six months ago. It has been kept in an air conditioned garage in Phoenix ever since.
Nearly 30,000 TD's were produced from 1950-1953. An example tested by The Motor magazine in 1952 had a top speed of 77 mph (124 km/h) and could accelerate from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 18.2 seconds. A fuel consumption of 26.7 miles per imperialgallon was recorded.
