MG TD 1951

My car for restoration is a MG TD which is build in 1951. The car is an original Californian black plate car, with original 1250 cc XPAG engine. The car and engine are complete number matching with the original type plates. The car is delivered to Lawndale California in 1951. The car was on the road for the first time in 1952. The car changed from owner ones in 1968. At that time the car was re-painted to aubergine and the interior was made black. The car drove with this new colours till 1972. Since then it stood still, after I have bought beginning 2005. The original colour of the car is MG red, with beige interior en tan hood. The steel of the car is in excellent shape, but al rubber parts are gone and the interior of the car was also in bad shape because of the burning sun. The retortion is in progress. I hope that the car is up and running again within a few years. For more information about the restoration, see the restoration paragraph on this web page.
