1952 MG T-Series for sale
This is an honest and driveable 1952 MG TD that had been sitting awhile in the previous owner's garage. The vehicle is solid and complete. It starts and runs without hesitation. The previous owners had replaced the original steering wheel with a smaller aftermarket one and “upgraded” the air cleaner with velocity stacks. The body and chassis are solid. The fenders have minor dings and dents from 65 years of touring. The vehicle was painted green about 30 years ago and has help protect the body from rust. There is a rust spot to the rear of the driver next to the fuel filler. Perhaps from too many years of "topping it up".
The non-original but period correct XPAG engine has been overhauled in the past. bored out . 040 over and the crank turned . 010. We honed the cylinders and installed new rings. The engine itself shows minimal oil leaks for an English engine and no smoke to speak of. The engine received a major tune-up with new cap. rotor. points wires. etc. The oil was changed after the rings had been broken in. The radiator rubber hoses were all replaced. The engine now operates at about 80° Centigrade and 25# of oil pressure at idle.
The fuel system has been totally flushed out. The fuel tank was removed and flushed and a new low fuel level sender was installed. The fuel lines and fuel pump were flushed. The carburetors were dissembled. cleaned and rebuilt.
All the fluids in the transmission and rear end were drained and replaced with new. The hydraulic braking system has been completely overhauled with new master and wheel cylinders. new rubber brake hoses and new brake shoes. The handbrake system has new cables and works as should.
The vehicle has a newer top and tonneau cover in excellent condition. There are no side curtains currently with the vehicle. The interior is in good condition. Upon further inspection it appears as if the original seat covers are underneath but the condition is unknown.
A new battery has been installed along with a new generator and voltage regulator. The electrical systems were verified that they work properly. charging. lighting and other features such as horn and wipers. The cockpit has the optional heater installed. The fan has been verified as working and all the plumbing is there but not hooked into the radiator. All the instruments (Speedo. Tach. Ammeter. Oil Pressure and Temp) work as should. We have not wound the clock in the tach but guarantee that it is correct twice a day.
Four new tires have been installed to provide a smooth ride. There is nothing required on this vehicle before it can be enjoyed. The vehicle is currently licensed with Antique Plates. It is a daily driver that will get you almost anywhere. albeit at 55 MPH.
Here is an opportunity to have a unique vehicle to drive in the country to watch the leaves change and then if you desire have a manageable project over winter to restore it to a higher level for the Spring car shows.
We have tried to provide as much information as possible with the description and photos. If there are other questions please contact us. As always it is strongly suggested that a personal inspection be arranged to help insure that this vehicle meets your expectations.
