1951 MG T-Series

This 1951 MG TD is a nicely detailed with its numbers-matching powerplant. It's a package that truly delivers an exceptionally nice example of hand craftsmanship that's also ready to take the long way home today.

An MG TD represents the old-world style of craftsmanship. There was a lot of Detroit iron being produced in the 1950s, but this roadster's body is proudly supported by ash wood. And because this MG is already a standout, it doesn't need a boisterous color. That's why we love the glossy black. It gives this the look of understated elegance. What also makes this stylish are the details, including the mirror-like grille surround, long flowing fenders, accessory luggage rack, and rear-mounted spare tire. These cool little roadsters are best for sunny day outings, but if the weather does turn wet, the tan folding roof looks good and keeps the rain off your shoulders.

But really, this one loves to be open to the world. We know you already noticed the green grille inserts coordinates so nicely with the distinct green interior. And so the way this one has such a thoughtful presentation inside and out is another sign of the amount of time and quality that this car displays. These MGs are a great lesson in purist motoring. A grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel, clear Jaeger gauges, and a manual transmission - that's all you get because that's all you need. Your senses will go into overload as you gaze at the glossy wood-like presentation of the curved dash panel. Pull the start button, and then the wind whips through the interior while you help fill it with the wonderful soundtrack from the motor.

The engine is the numbers-matching 1250 cc inline-four, and its exceptionally tidy presentation helps the car really shine. It's an overhead valve unit with twin SU carburetors, and it fires up and runs with the eagerness of a well-maintained machine. The motor was built for you to go out and row through the gears of the four-speed transmission and get the most out of this little motor. Just like the legs on a little dog, the MG's engine has a peppy attitude that's happiest when it's kicking just about as fast as it can. The light body weight and independent front suspension all contribute to the sporting attitude. But, to get the most fun out of this roadster, it requires you to actively shift and eye this spritely car's performance. That's what makes these MGs so popular; you are connected with the machine.

The sale comes complete with build receipts (from 2004), maintenance records, title documentation, service manuals, an extra steering wheel and a boot cover. This MG was built for driving, and the way it runs strong reaffirms it. So if you love a great classic European machine, call today!
