1953 MG TD/C MkII

A total of just 51 home-market RHD MG TD/C MkIIs were built between 1951 and 1953. making this a very rare car indeed.

The TD/C (where ‘C' stood for competition) benefited from a taller final drive ratio. twin electric fuel pumps and additional friction dampers on the front suspension to cope with the increased performance from the uprated engine (larger carburettors. higher compression. bigger valves to name a few of the performance enhancements).

This car example is a genuine right-hand drive example that the MG car club have records of being owned by a Mr Johnson of Middlesex in the late sixties.

However. over the last five years this TD has been subject to a complete ground-up restoration. Stripped back to its component parts. the chassis was powder coated. a new ash frame and body tub replaced the rotten originals. The engine has been rebuild along with all the suspension and brakes.

Inside it has been completely retrimmed in tan leather. The carpets are new. the gauges and steering wheel have been restored too.

The hood. side-screens and tonneau are brand new in black mohair.

The standard of restoration is superb with a highly detailed and correct engine bay and a beautifully finished underside.

On the road. this MG is magnificent. It drives equally as well as it looks with not a creak or a rattle. just lively performance. tight suspension and steering and effective brakes.

All in all. a show condition example of the rarest and best TD model that's ready to be enjoyed.
