The MG factory production records show that this MG TD was built July 17, 1951. I have the history of this MG TD back to 1961.In 1961 this MG TD was registered to Judge Lansing Mitchell in Covington LA. Judge Mitchell drove it regularly from 1961 until his death in 2001. Extensive records of this history are included with the car.
In 2001, Juge Mitchell's estate sold this MG TD to Ben White in New Orleans, LA. Ben and I have had several conversations; and Ben has verified itshistory and his decision as to how best restore it. Ben hired a well-known local MG expert in New Orleans, Mike Lewis, perform a comprehensive restoration that took over two years. Every nut and bolt was removed during this restoration and most of the original parts were used in the restoration.
Ben drove it for several years. In 2008, Mr.WilliamShane wanted to purchase it for display in his popular Cars of Yesteryears auto museum in Metairie, LA.The museum has over 150 vintage vehicles on display. William was very impressed with the quality of the restoration and it's sprightly performance. For the next nine years Willian Shane displayed it in his museum and also drove it on a regular basis.
In 2017 William Shane sold it to the Yesterdayâ€™s Classic Cars LLC in Colcord OK.
In 2018 Yesterdayâ€™s Classic Cars sold it to Tom Payette in Kentucky. Tom Payette is a retired MG, Jaguar, Buick andRolls-Royce dealer located in Louisville KY. Tom was wowed by the restoration.
Tom then hired one of his retired MG factory trainedMaster technicians, Bob Smith, to fully inspect it from end to end. BeforeTom bought it, Bob cautionedTom that he was reluctantto work on a well worn MG TD as he had seen enough of them in his career. However when Bob saw it in person, he marveled at itscondition, the accuracy of the work done and it's performance.
This is was Bob did....

Both the original MGTD chronometric speedometer and tachometer includingthe clock were not working properly so Bob removed them and sent them to Nisonger Instruments for refurbishment.
This MG TD has a tonneau cover, full convertible top and side curtains.
Mind you...this car ran well BEFORE Bob worked on it. I instructed him to fix or replace any parts needing attention. This is an exceptional MG TD from the quality of the restoration to its driving performance.
You will not be disappointed.
I welcome an inspection and will try to answer any questions you have.
