1952 MG T-Series
This is an honest and drivable 1952 MG TD that had been sitting awhile in the previous owner’s garage. The vehicle is solid and complete. The previous owners had replaced the original steering wheel with a smaller aftermarket one and “upgraded” the air cleaner with velocity stacks. The body and chassis are solid. The fenders have minor dings and dents from 65 years but only 30 years of actual road touring.
The non-original but period correct XPAG engine has been overhauled in the past, bored out .040 over and the crank turned .010.We honed the cylinders and installed new rings. The engine itself shows minimal oil leaks. The engine received a major tune-up with new cap, rotor, points wires, etc. The oil was changed after the rings had been broken in. The radiator rubber hoses were all replaced. The engine now operates at about 80° Centigrade and 40# of oil pressure at idle.
The fuel system has been cleaned out. The fuel tank was removed and flushed and a new low fuel level sender was installed. The fuel lines and fuel pump were flushed. The carburetors were dissembled, cleaned and rebuilt.
All the fluids in the transmission and rear end were drained and replaced with new. The hydraulic braking system has been completely overhauled with new master and wheel cylinders, new rubber brake hoses and new brake shoes.
The vehicle has a newer top and tonneau cover in excellent condition. There are no side curtains currently with the vehicle. The interior is in good condition with the exception of , patched hole in the passenger seat.Upon further inspection itappears as if the original seat coversare underneathbut the condition is unknown. New carpet has been installed on the floorboards.
A new battery has been installed and the electrical systems were verified that they work properly, charging, lighting and other features such as horn and wipers.
Here is an opportunity to have a unique vehicle to drive in the country to watch the leaves change and then have a manageable project over winter to restore it to a higher level for the Spring car shows.
We have tried to provide as much information as possible with the description and photos. If there are other questions please contact us. As always it is strongly suggested that a personal inspection be arranged to help insure that this vehicle meets your expectations.
