Manufactured on 05 November 1952, like the majority of MG’s of this period, this late model TD made the journey stateside and spent the first 62 years of its life in sunny California.

In long term ownership with a single custodian from 1972-2014, the car was repatriated back to the UK as a thoroughly sound but mechanically tired example, requiring light restoration.

Over a two year period, the car was then fully and comprehensively restored by a retired motor engineer, absolutely from top to bottom, resulting in a car that’s now utterly immaculate cosmetically and in thoroughly excellent driving condition, benefitting from the expert attention of MG guru Barry Hodson of Twyford.

The restoration saw the already sound body removed from the chassis, followed by a full rebuild of all mechanical components including the engine, gearbox, axle, braking system and running gear. From a cosmetic standpoint, the car was repainted, interior retrimmed, with all brightwork replated or replaced as necessary, all instruments restored, new wiring loom and finally a new mohair hood sourced and fitted.

The completed car presents beautifully, with lovely Ivory exterior paintwork with contrasting red leather trim, red radiator grille and finished off with a beige mohair hood. The car sits on its original specification perforated steel disk wheels, resulting in an understated, period correct looking TD.

With its 1250 cc engine, the car positively buzzes along and is perfectly suited to B-road country driving, just as it was built to do 68 years ago. The gearchange is light and positive, it handles beautifully and feels much spritelier than its 54 bhp would suggest. With the roof down on a summer evening, it’s superb fun and perfectly embodies everything that’s special about open top classic cars.

Since the restoration, the car has been lightly used, but scrupulously maintained, having only been used for high days and holidays and since completion has yet to see rain. It is sadly now for sale due to loss of storage.

This delightful MG harks back to a simpler time and driving it reminds you just how magical these cars are to own. The TD has a superb combination of ‘vintage’ feel, but with the practicality of a post war sports car, so you really do get the best of both worlds. With great access to spares and a choice of excellent and active owners’ clubs, this really is a classic car to use and enjoy without any fear and this TD would look equally at home at the Goodwood Revival or in the paddock at Shelsley Walsh.

Available for viewing in Oakham, Rutland.
