1952 MG TD - Delightfully Presented, 5 Speed Gearbox For Sale

This superb driving MG TD has come to us from a long term regular customer and has recently been treated to £4,750 of work to include a five speed gearbox conversion, fully rebuilt wheel cylinders, new brake shoes, brake master cylinder, a brake master cylinder remote reservoir, seat belts and front crank oil seal. The MG as result is an excellent driving car and is ideal for longer distance cruising with the benefit of its recently fitted five speed gearbox. This delightfully presented MG TD was manufactured in 1952 and was registered new in the United States of America. The MG was shipped to the UK in 1990 having been in Minnesota has covered approaching 19,000 miles in the 28 years its spent in the UK. From 1990 to 2014 in the MG had one owner in the South West before selling to one of our long term customers in Peacehaven, East Sussex. The MG came up to Yorkshire in part exchange and we sold the car to one of our northern based customers. YSU 197 has come to us in exceptional condition and has been restored to a very high standard. The first restoration we are aware of was back in 1985-1986 over in the U.S. At this point the car was totally stripped down, re-worked as necessary and totally re-painted. We have a report from the early 1990's confirming the MG had covered around 1500 miles since and was in very good order. All components and parts were replaced or overhauled and it was reported there was no rust visible on the car. We have invoices for various remedial works in the early 1990's and annual mileages tell us the MG has been in regular use since coming over to the U.K. It is clear from the stunning, glass finish paintwork that it has been re-painted over the past ten years and the upholstery is beautiful having been totally re-trimmed many years ago. The interior boasts stunning Black leather seats, brand new carpets, superb dash cover and excellent door cards. The vinyl hood is old but in very good order, replaced when initially restored in the late 1980's and the MG also comes with side screens and tonneau cover. The engine bay is beautifully presented and detailed, the chrome work gleams and wheels and tyres are in excellent order. The body panels are in excellent order, the body is structurally superb with an excellent chassis and the panels perfectly straight. The MG is strong mechanically with a very good engine holding excellent oil pressure. The MG handles and brakes well, the gear changes are perfect as expected with a brand new gearbox and the TD will be supplied with a full 12 months. The MG was converted from LHD to RHD in 2015 and we believe the car has been used for overseas touring, hence being kept in LHD format until recent years. This is an ideal choice if looking for a top class TD that has proven reliability and is capable of long distance touring. The car comes with a detailed history file with thousands of pounds worth of invoices and we also know the car was used for an Exeter investment Company marketing campaign, featuring on the front cover of their brochure and in many newspaper advertisements.
