This auction is for a matching numbers 1951 MGTD  (No. 3963)

This LHD model has just recently emerged from long term dry storage in the U. S and now presents as a running and driving project car for light resto.

The underside of this car is generally very sound with both excellent chassis and out riggers.    The wood appears to be in good shape & the body tub is strong with only minor surface rust to body panels and the area beneath doors.

The paintwork is poor. faded from an age in storage with numerous scrapes and blemishes etc.   The interior is lovely and original. featuring the correct Jaeger instruments and dash.   As per the photos. the drivers seat will require stitching to the leather base. But overall I believe she has a fantastic. original patina with a lot of character.

On receipt of this car we ran through the ignition system and rigged a temporary fuel supply. she fired straight up with very little work.   During this time in the workshop we noted that the fuel pump requires overhaul and that one of the carburettor float bowls is missing.

Mechanically she's all there. but will need a thorough going over to recommission the various systems. For example the brakes are all there. but don't work and will require full overhaul etc.

In summary. a very original vehicle with lots of character - In my eyes. a near ideal project vehicle for the winter months.
