REAL MG TD, 1250 CC OHV INLINE 4, SOLID & RUST FREE, CLEAN AND FUN!!
For sunny day fun, it's hard to beat a vintage MG. With a massive aftermarket and knowledgeable enthusiast network, buying one is like going to summer camp. These are reliable, and easy-to-repair cars that are ideal for the hobbyists who likes to drive their hardware. This 1953 MG TD is an extremely nice example that's ready to take the long way home today.
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 is proudly supported by an ash wood frame. Because of this, owing an MG stands out in the crowd, and this one even goes one step further. Most of these roadsters have either been painted British Racing Green or red. This one doesn't totally skip the crimson, but it uses it as an accent color on the wheels to complement the factory-spec black paint. These cool little roadsters are best for sunny day outings, but if the weather does turn wet, the folding roof and side wind deflectors will help keep your dry for the drive home.
Inside the motto should be, "No radio. No windows. No problem." These MGs are a great lesson in purist motoring. A grippy steering wheel, clear gauges, and a manual transmission - that's all you get because that's all you need. Your senses will go into overload as the wind whips through the interior and you help create the wonderful soundtrack from the motor. Being a minimalist does not mean lacking in style. Attention is guaranteed when you park this British invasion among the big Detroit metal at car shows. This TD is especially nice as the red vinyl interior matches the painted red wheels on the exterior.
The engine is a 1250 cc inline-four, and it helps the car really shine. It's an overhead valve unit with twin SU carburetors. The motor 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. Just like the legs on a little dog, the MG's engine has a peppy attitude that's happiest when it's kicking just about as fast as it can. The light body weight, and independent front suspension, all contribute to this sporting attitude. But to get the most fun out of this roadster, it requires you. That's what makes these MGs so popular, you are connected with the machine. This car needs you to get to the destination, and so when you arrive, it feels like an accomplishment.
It's tough to deny yourself this classic fun when it's this affordable. Even more importantly, there are plenty of people who will see the investment potential, and so it won't last long in our showroom. Call now!!
