Sympathetic is what first comes to our minds when we see a MG TD. Its friendly appearance, being compact and typically British: The TD remains an extremely attractive car to look at and especially to tour in. Nearly 30,000 TD’s were built before it was succeeded by the TF in 1963. This late 1953 TD has not been finish as usual in beige, dark green or red but in a stylish black with fine dark red leather interior trim. Both bodywork and chassis have been kept in a neat state of maintenance and naturally therefore are rust-free. It is an older restoration with nicely aligned and straight panelwork. The hood is in a neat used condition and comes with the correct inset windows, keeping most of the wet elements outside.

The interior trim has developed a lovely patina over the years as is befitting of such a car. The seats are supportive and the leather still nice and supple. The dashboard is, as the rest of the interior, trimmed in red and is spick and span. All instruments and switching gear work exactly as intended.

The simple but sporty 53 hp 1,250 cc engine with a manual 4-speed gearbox acquits itself well and is bound to bring a smile to your face. Despite its near 70 years of age, everything points to its being a sportscar in roadster attire. This MG darts with pleasure over country B-roads with suspension, brakes and steering all playing their part. The engine feels lively and sounds engaging.

If you are looking for the right car to especially bring loads of enjoyment, then this is the TD for you.
