For Sale: 1952 MG TD in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

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 favorite roads.


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 outings, but if the weather does turn wet, this one has you covered. Not only do you get the tan convertible top, but this also comes with the full side curtain package to help keep you dry all the way home.


Because the tan roof looks so good against the dark green paint, we're glad to see a similar color combo when this road is open to the world. The door panels look good, there's real wood on the dash, and the leather seats even have classic-style racing belts. So there's a very vintage feeling. And this interior is also a 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 need.


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 addictive.


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 today!
