Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1953 MG TD roadster. Finished in British Racing Green with a saddle brown interior and beige canvas top, it's an attractive driver in excellent mechanical condition. Paint and chrome show minor patina without being shabby; likewise the canvas top and side curtains are in older but serviceable condition. Steel wheels with hubcaps are in good shape, and a rattan basket affixed to the luggage rack adds a nice functional touch. Interior presents well with good carpets, seat upholstery, door cards and dash wood.

Under the hood is a 1500 cc engine from a 1963 MGA mated to a Nissan four-speed transmission from the early 1980s. Current owner of four years has spent nearly $10k in service work to make it a reliable driver, including a front-end rebuild, brake job, tune up, new tires, new clutch and a dash overhaul. Temp and oil pressure gauges are working, as are all lights, but the speedometer and tach are inop. This TD starts and runs great, and drives better than most thanks to the recent front-end and brake work.

Our client also owns a TR6, and he has limited space and time to enjoy both cars. This MG is a well-sorted example mechanically that presents as a good driver cosmetically. For more information about this 1953 MG TD for sale at Motorcar Studio in Atlanta, please call 404-692-5250.
