This MG TD, first registered on 15th May 1953, is just out of long-term storage and would seem to have had only four owners from new. It is a very original right-hand drive car, which appears to be very solid indeed – we have even inspected the ash frame under a couple of trim panels. The underside of the car all seems good and sound, it starts easily and runs well. You could either carry out a light restoration of the car, or give it a thorough recommissioning and get it back on the road as a lovely old oily rag. The brakes need overhauling, the paintwork is not good, but the hood, side screens and interior trim are all saveable. The chrome work is quite good and the engine (which is the original) and running gear appear fine. It looks to be absolutely complete apart from a couple of nuts and bolts here and there. The car will need to be re-registered with the DVLA, but we have a continuation log book from 1966 and the DVLA tell us that the original number has not been re-allocated and there is a good chance that it could be reinstated. Re-registration should be straightforward, but it may be best to enlist the help of the Octagon Car Club. Priced to sell, so proper, serious enquiries only please.
If you are interested in the car, please telephone (PLEASE don’t email your questions). We can tell you more and answer any questions you have – it’s so much quicker by phone, and to be honest, since lockdown, we have been inundated by email enquiries which take so long to answer.
We are always pleased to consider part-exchange especially for good MGs, or for othe interesting classics, and we can offer economic delivery to most parts of mainland Britain.
We also sell cars on a commission basis – no sale, no charge.
Please telephone for more information on 01723 859886 or 07876 741183 (please, no texts) at any reasonable hour, 7 days a week.
