1951 MG T-Series

You’re looking at an absolutely beautiful 1951 MG TD Roadster. The TD was considered a new model for 1950, though it was strictly evolutionary: it combined familiar MG styling and the existing XPAG 1.25-liter power with the Y-type saloon's independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. A total of 30,000 were built, and just 5,756 were imported to the U.S. for 1951.

This 1951 MG TD with only 26,355 miles, has a 1,250 C.C. Inline 4 Cylinder w/ Dual SU Carbs, 4 Speed Manual Tranes, Wood Dash, Electric Wipers, Body Colored Grill Slats, Older Restoration That Still Shows Well, Only 4 owners, Wonderful British Roadster That is Perfect for Fall!

Complete repaint in 1980 with Ditzler Acrylic Lacquer in Safari Ivory. I have extensive records of the restoration, and receipts for all original parts. This car is super fun to drive! Manual transmission, geared low for hill climbing. Could use some TLC but starts every time and runs smooth. The paint shows some age, as does the original trim and the wood and leather interior. Includes soft top and soft side panels and windows, which have only been used a couple of times at most - like new condition. Also includes original MG-TD owner’s manual and original MG-TD shop / repair manuals. Comes with extensive records, receipts, ownership transfers and providence. This car turns a lot of heads when driven around town, for sure!
