Description:

1953 MG T-Series TD CONVERTIBLE

FOR SALE MY 1953 MGTD IN ORIGINAL IVORY EXTERIOR, RED LEATHER INTERIOR, ALL ORIGINAL AND MATCHING NUMBERS. BOUGHT FROM MICHIGAN DEALER WHO ACQUIRED IN ESTATE SALE. PRIOR OWNER HAD FOR 32 YEARS, ALWAYS GARAGED KEPT, WENT THRU SELECTIVE RESTORATION IN MID 1980'S. CAR HAS BEEN WELL MAINTAINED AND IS AN EXCELLENT DRIVER....STARTS RIGHT UP, RUNS SMOOTH, GREAT OIL PRESSURE, SHIFTS AND BRAKES WELL, TIGHT SUSPENSION, OFFERS ZERO SMOKE.
TODAY THE CAR SHOWS SOME WONDERFUL PATINA VERY CONSISTENT WITH THE AGE OF RESTORATION AND CARE TAKEN...EXTERIOR PAINT WHILE SHOWING SOME AGE, STILL STANDS UP TALL. THE CHROME AND BRIGHT WERE REFURBISHED AT THE TIME OF RESTORATION AND STILL SHOW EXCELLENT. ENGINE COMPARTMENT REMAINS DETAILED AND THE FRAME AND STRUCTURAL WOOD ARE EXCELLENT. THE INTERIOR FEATURES REMAIN VERY TIDY, THE LEATHER SEATS SHOW NICELY, GOOD CARPET, VERY NICE WOOD DASH, ORIGINAL BANJO WHEEL AND VERY NICE ORIGINAL GAUGES. CAR HAS ORIGINAL TOP AND SIDE CURTAINS IN OVERALL GOOD CONDITION. I DO HAVE TWO KEYS, ORIGINAL BRITISH OPERATING MANUAL, AND MOSS MG TD PARTS AND ACCESSORIES MANUALS FOR PURCHASER.
ALTHOUGH NOT OF SHOW QUALITY, CAR OVERALL STILL A HEADTURNER WITH GREAT ORIGINAL COLOR COMBINATION AND HAS GAINED ATTENTION IN CLUB EVENTS, CAR RALLYS, AND JUST DRIVING AROUND TOWN......OVERALL A WONDERFUL 1950'S OPEN AIR BRITISH DRIVING EXPERIENCE.
COMMENT ABOUT MILEAGE OF 1681 MILES INDICATED ON ODOMETER. MICHIGAN DEALER I PURCHASED FROM STATED THEY WERE NOT SURE OF ACTUAL MILEAGE, BUT THE ODOMETER DOES WORK....COULD HAVE BEEN RESET AT TIME OF RESTORATION.....CAR's CONDITION, INCLUDING UNDERCARRIAGE, REFLECTS A CAR THAT WAS NEVER DRIVEN THAT MUCH OR HARD, MOSTLY FOR SHOWS OR RALLYS.
ASKING PRICE IS A VERY FAIR $19,750, AN INVESTMENT ATTRACTIVE TO ENTHUSIASTS AND COLLECTORS EVERYWHERE. PAYPAL ACCOUNT REQUIRED. DEPOSIT OF $500 WITHIN 24 HRS OF PURCHASE, WITH REMAINDER DUE WITHIN 7 DAYS OF PURCHASE, EITHER VIA BANK WIRE OR CERTIFIED FUNDS.
