Description for MG T-Series 19520000

MG's TC roadster sold well initially with American GI's enjoying it's sporty feel. Syd Enever and Alec Hounslow took a TC tourer and shortened the chassis five inches. Then they offered left-hand drive, ack and pinion steering, maller 15 inch steel disc wheels, due to problems with the wire wheels), nd larger bumpers. In turn the car was wider and 200 pounds heavier than the TC. Just like that, he MG TD roadster was born. Top speed is mid-70 range. In 1951 the TD receiveda new engine block and sump, s well as a larger clutch and a new flywheel. This configuration is commonly referred to as the TD2. There was no assembly line, he cars were hand made ash bodies with metal frames. It's mechanicals are robust and mostly easy to source. The cars were designed for maintenance of some items every 500 miles, o it is essential that everything is greased and oiled before putting it on the road. This was the best selling model of all the "T" series, nd rightfully so as the handling, ood looks, nd comfort options were the best. The car came with a radio, owever the radio, oes not appear to be original, nd designed to be in the glove box, oes not work. If you wish wire wheels or a supercharger, he items are available, hrough Morris Garage, nd others. Just as an original fuel pump which we got from England. The gas tank is 12.5 gallons, red light comes on the dash when only 2.5 gallons remain. The car averages 28-30 MPG, f driven lightly. The cooling system is 12 pints. The engine takes 9 pints of oil, hich should be changed every 3,000 miles. The gearbox takes 1.5 pints of oil. The rear axle capacity is 2 and 1/4 pints. As you can see this is not an expensive car to keep on the road!The carburetors are twin, il bath, U brand.The body is made of ash wood sothe car only weighs 2,016 lbs., ith the center of gravity very low, o it handles extremely well, nd is a joy to drive. Somewhat rare where we are,( high dessert of Southern California), ar always draws a crowd at the car shows. Provenance available back to the original owner. We are the third owner since new. This car has only been driven in Southern California since new, o there is very little rust, ostly on the exhaust pipe. It was first registered in Santa Barbara, A. We have enjoyed it immensely. It was boughtby the wife, owever my wife can no longer drive it. So now someone else can enjoy it.
