Technical specifications, photos and description:
This auction is for (2) 1952 MG TD's ( 1- Black. 1- Green)
These have been in storage for the past 35+ yrs and just recently removed from my parents barn and listed for sale. How you seem them is basically how they came out of storage with just the 35+ yrs of dust blown off. Both vehicles were purchased in the early 70's with the intention of restoring them.
I will explain them to the best of my ability.
1951 MG TD - Black vehicle
This is an early 1951 MG TD with SOLID wheels. The car from what I have been told is mostly original. The previous owner took off the bumpers and added a side air scoop that would need to be removed and the side hood repaired. This vehicle has the expected dents. dings and slight rust issues along the lower edge of the body directly below the doors and where the running boards meet attach to the body. All of these items can be seen in the images below. The chassis seems to be in good condition. some surface rust. but doesn't look to have any major rot. I have not put the car on a lift so this is all from me just sticking my head underneath. Top is in great condition. no rips or tears in fabric. Seats are in good condisiton. Drivers side has a few slits from age but otherwise no other rips or tears but would need to be redone. The engine turns over and the tires are free. There is a clear title for this car. It's a good original vehicle to start a restoration with.
1951 MG TD - Green vehicle
This is the worst of the two and I would consider this to be a parts car.
At some point prior to my parents purchasing this vehicle the front end got damaged. The front of the frame was bent and a replacement piece was purchased but never grafted in. You will see the damage and the replacement piece in the pics below. I do not know if any other areas of the frame were damaged or bent in any other areas. It looks to be fine but that is just my opinion. The body does have rust/rot issues along lower edge of the body below the doors and the interior wood floor has holes as well. These areas can be seen in the pics below.
Original parts for the green vehicle that are not on the car but come with it are:
- (2) original green doors: Both in really good condition. no rust or rot. Interior wood pieces are intact and look to be in good condition.
- original green gas tank: loks to be in real good condition. no rust/rot. complete.
- rear green splash panel: in real good condition. No rust/rot. Just needs to be refinished.
- (1) original green fender - drivers side: this has damage on the top of the fender where the front headlights attach. Dents along the front edge of the fender. besides those areas. no rust/rot.
- (1) NON-original to the car front fender - passenger side: this is an original factory MG metal fender we bought to replace the damaged one on this vehicle. Top of fender where the headlight attaches to the fender needs to be repaired. Otherwise the rest is just surface rust and the rest of the fender is in real good shape.
- rear tire frame: really good condition. No dents. rust or rot.
