The most recognized quintessential British sports car ever made, a 1952 MG TD Roadster. This MG TD is a Nevada car a very nice dry solid original car and still in nice condition. Either just drive (runs extremely well) and enjoy a real barn find or restore to your desired level. Finished in Bright Blue, this two-seater's paint and trim are in overall decent order. The fold-flat windshield is clear and intact, and the lights are haze-free. This car has Concord tires, size 5.60-15 and a rear mounted spare. Each tire is mounted on the original vented steel wheels with original hubcaps. This MG's bodywork is very solid although the foldable roof shows minor wear (might be the original). The engine bay is very original, and the bumpers are in excellent condition as all the brightwork on the motor vehicle. Under the bonnet is the original 1250cc 4 cylinder (XPAG-TD2-LHX14160) four-cylinder engine mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The MG TD combined the TC's engine with a completely different transmission (albeit also a four-speed), a modified hypoid-geared rear axle, the MG Y-type chassis, a familiar T-type style body and independent suspension using coil springs from the MG Y-type saloon: a 1950 road-test report described as “most striking” the resulting “transformation … in the comfort of riding.” Also used from the company's successful 1¼-litre saloon was the (still highly geared) rack-and-pinion steering. In addition, the TD featured smaller 15-inch disc type road wheels, a left-hand drive option and standard equipment bumpers and over-riders. The car was also five inches wider with a track of 50 inches.
