1953 MG T-Series TD Additional Info:

Well documented history.
For sale is a 1953 MGTD in excellent condition. I would rate this car as a high level driver with no known issues. I will do my best to describe every aspect of this car but it is 63 years old and you can expect the maintenance to be that of a 63 year old car. Please e-mail me any questions you have that I may have missed or come see this car for yourself in sunny Naples, Florida.
The mileage is 58,210 and in listed as such on an actual mileage title. The service records back this up and a stack of records is included.
Mechanical - This car runs and drives fantastic. I use it for short errands and sunday drives. The engine was rebuilt prior to my ownership and has good oil pressure and runs cool. The transmission shift smoothly through all 4 forward gears and reverse gear. Keep in mind that this car was built before synchromesh, so you will become a double clutch expert. The suspension is firm, handles very well and tracks in a straight line. Like all 63 years old cars, you will find some very minor oil drops underneath. (Way less than other TDs I've seen) The brakes work as designed but are no means Brembo slotted discs. The brake pads are good and there are no leaks at the wheel cylinders. The tires are in very good condition and the wheels are completely straight. The exhaust system looks fairly new and is stainless steel.
Body - The body of this TD is 100% rust free. The frame is painted black and the wood floors are like new. The paint is an older respray and shows very well. There is a scratch on the passenger side hood next to the latch. All the body panels are straight with no dents. The doors are straight and open and close easily. (The door straps could use some grease) All of the rubber on the body is brand new, including the windshield frame seal and running board anti slip pads. All of the chrome is in very nice condition as well.This car includes FULL WEATHER GEAR. The tan convertible top is in nice condition but is older. All of the plastic windows are clear and very nice. There are also a matching spare tire cover and tonneau cover.
Interior - The interior is very nice as well but is older. I believe the seats are actual leather. There are no tears, rips or holes on any interior seats or panels. The carpet is in good condition. The dashboard is wood and looks fantastic. Thegaugesare in great condition with clear glass.
Electrical - All of the exterior lights work as designed. It has running lights in front of the grilles that work great. The car starts every time on the first try. This car is very simple electrically, so there really isn't much that can go wrong.
I am selling this TD to make room for a new purchase. I will answer all your questions quickly and honestly. You are welcome to come see the car in person. There is nothing to hide with this one so please do not try and renegotiate after the auction closes. This is a NO RESERVE auction and the selling price is the price. Thats it.
