This MG TD was brought into the UK just three years ago and has been subject of a comprehensive restoration. On arrival into the UK the MG was fully stripped down and the wood frame rebuilt as required. The main body rails. A posts. rear body rail. under dash and main dash section were all replaced with new timber. A brand new Ford Type 9 five speed gearbox along with a new propshaft. pedal box. RHD steering rack and full wiring harness were fitted and the engine checked and only required new cam followers and camshaft.

Mechanically our TD is first class and is excellent to drive. The MG has had new brake seals all round. new brake cylinders. new master cylinder. new brake reservoir and new brake shoes front and rear. The TD has had all new flexi brake pipes. new handbrake cable and further mechanical improvements to include new exhaust mountings. new electric fan. electronic fuel pump. electronic ignition. new fuel lines. rebuilt carbs and alternator.

837 YUA is beautifully presented and has been treated to a high quality re-paint in Old English White. The body was structurally excellent on arrival in the UK and required no metal work or welding.   The body was flatted down. professionally prepared and finished with a stunning glass finish. The underside was steam cleaned and painted. chrome work largely very good and only required replacement over riders. The interior was fully re-furbished with new foam bases. brand new Green leather. dash cover. door and side panels and new carpets. If desired. we will change the new Red carpets that have been fitted by the last owner. A new double duck Tan hood has been fitted and the MG also comes with new sidescreens and full tonneau cover.

The MG has most recently been owned by a long term customer who has enjoyed covering local miles over recent months. The TD is beautifully presented. is terrific to drive with excellent handling. a strong engine delivering impressive performance and the new five speed gearbox really enhances the drive at higher speeds.
