This 1952 MG TD is an exceptional example of great hand-built
craftsmanship that was built to let you go out and find many new
An MG TD represents the old-world style of craftsmanship. There was
a lot of Detroit iron being produced in the 1950s, but this
roadster's body is proudly supported by ash wood. And because this
MG is already a standout, it doesn't need a boisterous color,
that's why we love the sophisticated Woodland Green. It has a
terrific sense of style where there's a good gloss but plenty of
aged maturity you want in a true classic like this. Even on a car
this small, they left room for a touch of flair. Lucas tri-bar
headlights, bright chrome bumpers, an added luggage rack, and long
flowing fenders. These cool little roadsters are best for sunny day

reminder that these MGs are a great lesson in purist motoring. A
grippy three-spoke steering wheel, classic Jaeger gauges, and a
manual transmission - that's all you get because that's all you
The engine is the correct 1250cc inline-four unit, and it has a
crisp and clean appearance of good maintenance over the years. So
it looks good and runs strong out on the road. It's a sprightly
machine with a light weight body, classic Pirelli tires, and
independent front suspension all making it feel nimble. The
drivetrain was built for you to go out and row through the gears of
the four-speed transmission and get the most out of this little
motor. The result is a car where you feel an instant connection in
everything you do, and that kind of purist motoring is absolutely
There are details you may correct on your own time, like
conditioning the seat leather or upgrading the body bushings. But
overall, this is the quintessential British roadster offered with
nice extras and a terrific price. So don't miss this deal, call
