Gorgeous 1951. This car has been restored by the current owner of 37 years.
It has a new top and new 1/2 and full Tonneau covers. Plus I have the working manual, various extra parts including an extra wheel.
It starts right up and runs great. The oil pressure and temperature gauges are right on the money. For more info please feel free to contact me to make an offer.
I am retiring and want to travel further than the MG can take me.
The car is a good solid runner that was restored some years ago and still presents very well. It's mechanically sorted and ready for the road, a great example of The Classic British Sports Car.
Finished in a two tone lacquer, fenders Chocolate Brown and body Maize Yellow, the engine compartment is also Maize Yellow (Imron gloss). A few small chips if you look closely but overall the car looks pretty sharp. The finish is glass smooth with no orange peel, overspray or other imperfections. The body on this MG is super solid with no rust issues. The folding windshield is in good condition, its frame surround is original with good chrome. Tires are new with less than 100 miles on them.
All of the chrome on the car is in excellant quality condition. Bumpers are both straight. The fog lights are new and wired in.
The soft-top has been replaced, the side curtains are original. .
The tonneau cover fits well and replaced (Moss Motors)
The interior is clean and functional, the upholstery was replaced to original design/style (not leather) as well as the floor mats. Everything works correctly on the dash - lights, signals, original horns and wipers need adjustment and all gauges are functional.
Under the hood this MG is clean and tidy with a Moss Motors replacement wiring harness. Recent work includes radiator flush out, new electronic fuel pump, new brakes & brake cylinders rebuild and gas tank boil out..
The car starts readily and runs very well. It rides down the road with a light and nimble feel, the suspension and steering are tight and responsive. The car shifts well with good synchros and positive engagement. The car brakes well, tracks straight and runs well.. When you are behind the wheel of this MG you're brought back to what it means to be driving classic British sports car. No talking on the cell phone, no tuning in the radio - instead you are listening to the motor, timing your shifts, becoming one with the car.
Solid and undamaged undercarriage with good wood and solid sheet metal
