1951 MG TD Offered as a buy-it-now. Make us an offer!
This very nice and fully sorted example was built in September 1951. Fully restored and well driven. this car is not a trailer queen blue ribbon restoration but an honest frame off/frame up restoration done with driving in mind.
The Engine was rebuilt with recent cylinder head work (new valves. new guides. new seals. new rockers arms. new push rods. and new adjuster screws). New big end bearings. Crankshaft has been magnafluxed. New water pump. new fuel warning light sending unit. new battery. all new brakes (new master cylinder. six new wheel cylinders. and new brake shoes). rebuilt shocks. new tires and tubes. custom exhaust. new gear reduction starter. new voltage regulator and new generator. This TD has a nice walnut instrument panel facia. Moto Lita steering wheel. and custom made walnut gear shift knob. The Front suspension has been rebuilt with new poly bushings and new spring pans and new controls arms. The Rear axle has new heavy duty half shafts (by Dave Clark/Jerry Austin). new seals and new bearings.
The Transmission has been upgraded to Skyhook Engineering 5 speed for relaxed highway driving.
H2 carburetors have been gone thru with new gaskets. jets. and needles.
The four wheels on the ground have been trued and straightened and have new tires and tubes.
Top material is cloth. not vinyl. I believe it was made by Robbins.
In short this isn't the average TD you will buy and continue messing with/throwing money at for years. or having it leave you by the side of the road-but rather a fully sorted car with sensitive and meaningful upgrades you can jump in and drive anywhere you want to go on the drop of a hat.

The MG T series of cars (including the TA. TB. TC. TD. and TF) was a basic body-on-frame convertible sports car produced from 1936 through to 1955. It was replaced by the MGA. The 1950 TD combined the TC's drivetrain but with modified hypoid geared rear axle with the MG Y-type chassis and a familiar T-type style body. An independent suspension using coil springs in front was new. based on that fitted to the MG Y-type saloons. as were rack and pinion steering. smaller 15-inch disc type road wheels and a left-hand drive option. Bumpers and over-riders became standard for the first time. The car was also 5 inches wider with a track of 50 inches.
In 1950 the TD MkII was introduced. produced alongside the standard car. with a more highly tuned engine with 8. 0:1 compression ratio giving 57 bhp at 5500 rpm. It also featured twin fuel pumps revised dampers and a higher rear axle ratio. Nearly 30. 00 TDs had been produced. including about 1700 Mk II models . when the series ended in 1953 with all but 1656 exported. 23. 88 were exported to the United States.
An example tested by The Motor magazine in 1952 had a top speed of 77 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 18. 2 seconds. A fuel consumption of 26. 7 miles per imperial gallon was recorded. Our Ebay Policies:
