F40 Motorsports is proud to offer this 1951 MG-TD.
This beautiful car has undergone a thorough restoration including a re-sealed engine and transmission, new clutch, all new seat upholstery and interior panels, new carpeting, a new braided cloth wiring harness, new top, professional re-paint, new radial tires, a professionally restored steering wheel, new floor, rebuilt rear springs, fuel tank restoration, added seat belts, side view mirrors and much more. Restoration records are included with this car. It has been driven just 800 miles since its restoration in 2015, and is stored indoors.
The instrument panel includes a restored calibrated speedometer by Speedograph Richfield in Nottingham, England. The tachometer and the temperature and oil pressure gauges work and all have new faces. The car is equipped with a rare authentic working Arnolt heater, and a 12V auxiliary port for your cell phone charger.
Windshield side and top wings, full cockpit tonneau cover, working Motometer, original engine hand crank and a set of Whitworth tools are included with your purchase price. Whitworth tools are required to work on the MG-TD.
The side curtains have been restored with new marine-quality window material. The exterior paint is a stunning and rare MG Clipper Blue with an elegant black interior, set off by a new genuine walnut dashboard. The car has a new badge bar, with a fog light and traditional English grill badges. The steering wheel was restored by the renowned Cordsen Design Studio.
The engine is the famous MG 1250 cc XPAG, with rebuilt polished twin SU carburetors. The engine has been compression checked and completely resealed. The car has all original chrome in good condition. Extras include full restoration documentation, owners manual, factory service manual, MG-TD literature, and spare maintenance parts.
This car is restored with full documentation of all expenses. It has a fresh paint job and no body rust. This car has the highly desirable MGA rear differential 4.1 gear ratio conversion by Quantum Mechanics in Oxford, Connecticut. This means that the engine can be used at highway speeds. Without this conversion, driving an MG on the highway at 60 mph means the engine is roaring at 5500 rpm. This car has turn signals, with electronic self-cancel feature, seat belts and new chrome side view mirrors. The standard MG-TD has no turn signals, belts or side view mirrors. This car has a center-high brake light. It has undergone a thorough stripped-down inspection of the wood frame rails and wood body structure.
