For your consideration is a beautiful 1952 MG TD Roadster. It is a very clean car with a clear California title. It was purchased by its second and current owner in the 1970’s having just had a thorough mechanical and complete cosmetic overhaul. After the work was completed, the car has always been in California, covering only 300 miles since its overhaul. It has always been covered and garaged by its current owner. It was started on a frequent basis and taken on very short drives during the years since the overhaul.
Recent work just completed includes a new battery, fuel pump, fuel filter, and brake replacements. The car’s gasoline tank, lines and carburetors have been thoroughly cleaned; the engine runs mechanically strong.
The DuPont Imron exterior red paint is in very good condition and quite appropriate for this British classic. There are a few minor chips and touch ups, but no physical damage and no partial repainting. All the chrome has plenty of shine and no signs of pitting. The windshield is clear with no cracks or other damage.
The black interior upholstery and black vinyl seats are in excellent and in as-new condition. Likewise, the black carpet is complete with very minor wear. The vinyl covered wood dashboard was remanufactured and the vinyl covering is like-new. All electrical gauges, as well as other gauges, are fully functional. The beige vinyl top is in good condition and folds up and down very easily. There are very few minor discolorations on the vinyl top. Included in this sale are the factory original black vinyl removable windows. The rear window in the vinyl top remains clear with no scratches or other damage.
The only thing that requires mention is the driver’s door. It is a little challenging to close completely. An adjustment should make that closure easier. The tires should be replaced. This was felt best left to the new owner as tire choices vary. Over all, this is a lovely car that requires a small amount of attention before serious or distance driving.
