1953 MGTD MK2

A rare TD MK 2 low ownership and restored condition



This TD has an interesting history originally being exported from Abingdon to America sometime in early 1953. It is not known where in America the car was shipped to nor to whom. We are in receipt of information about two of the previous owners whilst in America, a Mr David Mosley of Daytona who acquired the car in June 1982 and sold it to a Mr Colburn on the 4th February 1991. The vehicle was then sold to a Classic Car dealership Rader’s Relics of Florida in March 2000 and purchased by the present owner Mr Keith Brookfield and shipped to Guernsey on the 3rd April 2000. The vehicle has a history of restoration and documentation from Mr David Colburn who carried out new leather, paint, tyres, gauges, gaskets etc. but the MG did not require any work to the engine nor transmission. The vehicle is presented in excellent order, starting on the button and pulling strong through all gears. A delight offering nostalgic moments of the bygone age of motoring.

This beautiful TD is an ex Florida car supplied with a vast array of documentation. Unfortunately the original service records from Abingdon were tragically lost therefore not knowing the purchase date or the name of the original owner. However it is supplied with a reproduction MG Car Co Guarantee which gives the date on which the car's chassis was "laid down" on the production line at Abingdon.
