Presenting this completely restored 1953 MG TD, a classic British sports car exuding timeless charm and appeal. Renowned for its elegant design, spirited performance, and open-air motoring experience, this iconic roadster continues to captivate enthusiasts with its nostalgic allure. The current owner acquired the vehicle in 2020 from New England Classics, who had just completed the restoration. Since then, less than 375 miles have been added to the car.

The restoration involved various enhancements, including a freshly rebuilt MGB engine, doubling the original horsepower, along with a new alternator, rebuilt SU carbs with air cleaners, and a rebuilt 4-speed transmission with a new clutch. Additionally, new 15” wire wheels and tires were installed, along with a new oil cooler and oil lines, an electric radiator fan, twin fuel pumps (one for emergency use), and electronic ignition. Furthermore, upgrades such as powder-coated headers, MGA front disc brakes, and an MGA back axle with a 3.9 GB diff were incorporated for improved performance.

The vehicle boasts excellent chassis and wood floors, pristine chrome, a rear luggage rack, and a folding windshield with twin racing screens. The exterior is adorned in deep British Racing Green, complemented by a new matching tonneau cover, side view mirrors mounted on the fenders, and fog lights. Recent additions include a new battery and a turn signal added to the steering column.

Modern conveniences within the interior include a hidden modern stereo/CD player, a 12v outlet with USB outputs, an onboard trickle charger, and seat belts. With less than 375 miles added by the current owner, this seventy-year-old vehicle presents an incredible opportunity to own a meticulously crafted classic with contemporary comforts and safety features.

While retaining its stock exterior, interior, dash, and gauges for show-ready appeal, the MG TD surprises with double the horsepower, an improved drivetrain, ignition, cooling, and other enhancements. Notably, the engineering during restoration allows for the transmission to be removed without taking out the engine, a unique feature among MG models.

Starting effortlessly and driving smoothly, whether on neighborhood streets or the highway, the 1953 MG TD embodies the quintessential British sports car experience. Its blend of classic design, spirited performance, and open-air enjoyment ensures it remains a beloved and cherished classic, evoking nostalgia and adventure with every journey.
