1953 MG MG-TD
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Beautiful red paint on an excellent body, literally `laser straight` with a show finish and `mirror image.` And checked the edges of the body, doors, fenders with my magnet....no indication of plastic filler anywhere. Excellent chrome, converted to wire wheels with new drums, splined hubs, and hardware. All new gray interior, new top, new tonneau, has a very nice appearance.
On the road, lively performance, as fast as any TD I can remember, maintained 65 psi oil pressure at operating temperature, no smoke cold or hot, steering excellent, same with brakes, no rattles, gearbox had good synchromesh action and the shifter didn`t even rattle (a common issue with TDs), overall, a ready to use/drive near seventy year old car.
Now, TDs never had wire wheels from the factory but now and then, one finds a TD with wire wheels fitted at the original US dealership. In this car`s case, installed rather recently. And nothing makes a TD look better than a set of wire wheels.
TDs offer the most bang for the buck........very pre war classic styling yet easy to service and maintain in the 21st century. Very precise rack and pinion steering, soft coil spring front suspension, inexpensive modern radial tires, good brakes......lots of `post war` virtues in a classic sports car with running boards.
