This original RHD Series "TD2" left the factory in December 1952 as an EXR model bound for South Africa where it resided all its life until being repatriated back to the UK in 2006 by legendary T-Type MG Specialists Barrie Carter. Upon return this stunning TD underwent a full restoration and engine rebuild by Barrie Carters team before being sold to its only UK registered keeper to date on 20th October 2008. A mere 1478 miles has been completed since restoration.
Being a late production model several changes were introduced in the autumn of 1952 as sales of the TD started to fall in favour of cars like the TR2 and the Austin Healey 100. These included circular rear lamps incorporating flashing turn signals, and a three-bow frame replacing the 2-bow frame for the hood. Also, the wiper motor was moved to the centre of the windscreen.
A fresh 12 month MOT will be issued up on sale and of course this MG TD is HPI Clear.
This is an excellent opportunity to own a stunning beautifully restored MG Series TD and one not to be missed.
Along with brilliant parts availability, owners club support and mechanical simplicity offer worry free classic car motoring allowing the new owner to concentrate solely on enjoyment.
