Classic Car Overview

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this wonderful little 1953 MGTD Roadster for consideration. The car is presented in its factory color combination Ivory/Cream over Green interior. The car comes to us from an enthusiast who acquired the car in 2015, who enjoyed the car driving it 2,443 miles over the last 4 years.

In 2012 and 2013, the car was extensively mechanically refurbished at the masterful hands of world renoun MG specialist, John Twist of University Motors. These records come with the car and every aspect pertaining to drivability was address including: Brakes, clutch, gearbox, suspension, wiring, steering, cooling system, ignition, valves, engine compression etc. Today, as a result of this and routine servicing since, the car can be driven aggressively with confidence and remains one of the most well sorted TDs that has graced the floor of the GR Auto Gallery.

The interior remains quite crisp still featuring the original dash facia, original steering wheel, original gauges, knobs, buttons etc. The Ivory / Cream exterior paint is older and does show some character in areas but remains in healthy driver quality condition. The engine and engine bay remain clean and undetailed and underneath remains unrestored and reveals an excellent core structure.

All in all, if you are looking for a good looking and spirited TD that can be driven with confidence, then look no further here. At the time of this writing, All the lights, horn, turn signals work, and the gauges seem to be functioning properly.

The MGTD remains a sweetheart of the collector car world. The car here is ready for immediate enjoyment and leaves room to nurture your investment. Documentation includes all the original factory data tags, original engine tag, a binder of service records that documents the services mentioned in this writing and more recent services, and owners handbook. The car also comes with a full tonneau, fuel stick, a set of side curtains, it does not come with a soft top, and like any good English car, it comes with some spare oil filters, bulbs and a mish mash of small parts.
