1953 MG T-Series TD

1953 MGTD




This NO RESERVEauction is for a very nice looking 1953 MGTD. These early Post-war MGs really stand out on the road and never fail to bring out some smiles and thumbs up from people when you are driving them around. They are a blast to drive and are still very capable of keeping up with traffic. The suicide doors are a feature that takes a little getting used to, ut getting in and out of one of these is much easier than it looks and they will easilyaccommodate 6 footers even with the top up!

This stock example has been well maintained and exhibits good behavior when driven. It starts right up, hifts easily, teers with ease and comes to a halt like it is supposed too. One of the nice things about these cars is the simplicity. Owning one of these won't put you in the poor house. There is very adequate parts availability and most of themaintenance doesn't require a degree in rocket science.This MGTDis extremely rust free and appears to have ahigh degree of originality with all numbers matching!The single pipe stainless steel exhaust system should good for years to come.

When you open up the side curtains of the hood, t is strikingly tidy and well put together. The paint is driver quality with a few blemishes here and there, ost notably a slight hit on the passenger running board (shown). The wooden dash is weather beaten and the fabric top exhibits some stains but it is solid. The plastic on two of the side curtains is cracked. The bright work is all in very good condition. We weren't able to have the car detailed prior to the photo shoot and it would benefit greatly from a day of beauty and some TLC. We didn't want to bog you down with pages of MGTD history and information, onsidering that most of the enthusiasts looking at this listingwill know much more about this car than we do.

This car is currently registered and street driven. We treated ourselves to a little drive to check this vintage ride out and does this car ever put abig grinon your face! Most of the people that see it on the street have the exact same reaction. This MG performs well and most everything works as designed. It fires right up and there is no smoke, oises, eaksor other gremlins as it warmsup nicely and settles rightinto a comfortable idle as you push the choke back in. At the time we shot the images most of the electronics were functioning correctly. This car is over 60 years old so please forgive us if we overlooked something minor.
