Technical specifications, photos and description:
This auction is for a vintage 1951 MG TD
The car is a 'black plate' California car and is believed to have spent its whole life in Lynwood. California (Just South of Los Angeles). Its sold with a stack of licence certificates confirming ownership by the same chap for the previous 40 years. We are told this is a one owner vehicle from new. but the documentation only dates back to 1975 so we can't verify that.
Finished in a subtle metallic finish green. this is a structurally sound example requiring recommissioning works - The vehicle has seen little use in recent years and although she runs and drives. the car will need attention to brakes and interior trim tidying.
Mechanically the car appears to be very sound. starting instantly and settling to a steady idle with good oil pressure. The engine sounds very sweet indeed. the clutch and gearbox work fine but the brakes are hopeless and will need overhaul.
As per the photos. the bodywork is very good and the paint very presentable. The interior is all complete. but the carpets need replacing and the dash fascia would benefit from refinishing etc. The car retains its original Jaeger instrumentation and switch gear.
In summary. a structurally great example requiring recommissioning and finishing works - A straight foward project for any MG enthusiast. Vehicles like this are becoming increasingly hard to source. viewing comes highly recommended.
The vehicle has just been UK registered and is sold complete with V5C logbook and new tax disc.
