Description:

1951 MG T-Series Burgundy

1951 MG TD Fresh out of paint.

This car went through a rebuild before going to paint. The pictures show the car at delivery, through the rebuild process and the finished product. The vehicle does have some purchase and service history dating back to 1976. The car was built for export and is left hand drive TD/7581 EXLU. The engine is a replacement XPAG# 918.

This is the 3rd MG I have rebuilt. This was not a frame off restoration. The car was taken down to where the body tub still remained on the frame. There were no indications that it needed to be taken apart any further. British Auto of Fort Worth, Texas did a lot of the mechanical work. Not original to the car is a push button starter on the dash. The green light below the dash is the turn signal indicator light. Ibelieve theodometer is incorrect and indicated 99,000 in the Item specifics. I do not believe the car has only accumulated 9,156 miles.The car is painted in gloss black, with burgundy paint for accent stripes, grill, gas tank straps, gas tank side panels and finally clear coated. Paint work was done by Alliance of Fort Worth, Texas.

The car is currently titled with a safety inspection and has been driven approximately 20 miles since final assembly.
