1952 MG T-Series1952 MG TD - Quality Restoration
This was a total frame-off restoration with less than 200 miles since.
Paint is a single stage Urethane (PPG Concept)
Engine, earbox, ifferential completely rebuilt.Inaddition to new bearings, askets etc, he gearbox got a new 1st/2nd gear sliding hub per Horst Schachs recommendation.
Brakes completely rebuilt with new Cunifer lines and new hoses
New Autosparks Electrical harness
Underdash panel installed with original brackets (almost nobody bothers with this)
Most chrome replated (some was too nice to replate) Small ding in the radiator shroud but not bad enough to cause a replate.
The Coffin Rocker Cover and Finned Sideplate are authentic period accessories and not reproductions
Turn signals installed with proper switch and wires included in the new harness (and they work)
New Stayfast Top and Tonneau
Sidecurtain frames restored but not covered
New OEM Radiator
Instruments rebuilt by MOMA. (They installed new odometer wheel, ence the low indicated miles)
Before the speedometer was rebuilt, t showed about 62K miles. Given the condition of the car, hat could of been the actual miles but no way to confirm.
The starter was replaced with a new one from Moss. The original will go with the car. Looks good but was getting weak, robably rebuildable.
Fuel pump was replaced with a new SU. Original will go with the car.
The car had been stored in the dry desert climate for years. Absolutely no rust. The only wood that needed replacement were the floorboards ant the top tack strips.
Entered it in one show and took first against 6 TDs
Several excellent reference books go with the car
Reason for selling - I'm old,dimensionally challenged, tiff, nd I justdon't fit so itdoesn't get driven.
Its a great car,don't thinkyou'll find a nicer one and that includes the ones the dealers are asking $35K for. (My opinion, ossibly some bias)
