This auction is for a 1952 MG TD project vehicle.

Recently imported from the US. where its been in dry storage since 1973 (See original windscreen sticker!)  This car is an excellent rolling project vehicle. structurally very sound and mechanically complete. we think its hard to beat.

The engine starts straight up. the bottom end sounds healthy and the oil pressure is good but at present she appears to be running on a smokey three cylinders only. This will need checking out. as we're selling as a project we havent looked into it.  

The rocker gasket is also leaking. but I would suggest some form of top end freshen up is probably the way to go here. nbsp;so I saw little point in replacing the gasket at this stage.

As you might expect. the brakes are sticky and will require overhaul.

Underneath. the all important chassis and outriggers are in excellent shape - The areas of exposed wood that you can see are also great.

Topside. once again the bodywork is very sound indeed. There's the odd dent and ding from the 40 years she's spent in hibernation. but overall very good. The pictures speak for themselves. please study them carefully.

The interior is all original and the car retains its correct Jaeger instrumentation. The glovebox has what appears to be the original dealer fitted radio still mounted inside it. a great period feature.

 Both the hood and frame are in poor condition. the sidescreens are still tucked away in their storage locker but will also need recovering. However the vehicle does have a tonneau cover. which appears to be in good shape.

This TD is a matching numbers example. always a bonus. The car comes complete with its UK Customs NOVA documention. confirming that all import taxes have been paid. this also permits UK registration.   We're told this is a two owner car. the previous owner having purchased it way back in June 1959. this ties up with a copy of the US title that comes with the car.

In summary. a very solid matching numbers LHD example with good bodywork but tired engine and sticky brakes. Project TD's rarely come more straight forward than this one!  Not to be missed.
