1953 MG TD 1250 (1953)




This Mg with purchased from Phil Newey Sports Cars in 2017 (as a dry state California car) by a Dealer in the Netherlands who subsequently sold the car to the current keeper. An extensive ground up restoration began to include a full photographic engine rebuild by Peter Edney (£3788) with unleaded head, new larger TF valves and a rear crankshaft seal conversion. The gearbox was replaced with a 'type 9' 5 speed version (the old 4 speed one is available with the car). The body was stripped and sandblasted and painted and the tyres are recent. Any chrome that was pitted was either replaced or rechromed, the speedo was recalibrated to suit the gearbox, and the glass was replaced, The car was then retrimmed in biscuit and new wet weather gear was supplied (hood/tonneau and side screens).
The car comes complete was many invoices detailing these extensive works, a photographic history of the restoration, and all handbooks and manuals a re present. It is stunning and effectively a new 1953 MG!
