Nice Restoration, 1953 MG TD

Nice Restoration, 1953 MG TD

This British classic roadster produced by MG Car Company, as the picture is fourth generation of T-type Midget commonly known as MG TD was released in 1953 come in black has been full restoration and has powered by the Japanese Datsun engine ready to go.

Detail by owner
Here we go..........This is an absolute smiles per miles champion. I have NEVER gotten so many waves, horn beeps, and smiles from any car in my life. I never go out without something nice and friendly happening. People must think I am nice just because I drive this old TD?

The facts about the car are as follows:
Original stock 1953 MGTD body formerly from Arizona and Florida.
Repainted in the not too distant past...but no rust or wood restoration whatsoever. Paint job is decent, but not superb.
New Cooker wide whites
New brake
New real nice interior of velour
Engine and drive train from 1974 Datsun B210....You remember.....the first real economy car from Japan....That NEVER broke down, but was maybe 65 horsepower and was pretty slow....
Just right for a TD which was maybe 60 horsepower and pretty slow, but NEVER ran. This little jewel has never needed anything to keep it running in the 3 years I have owned it. It has the character of the MG and the utilitarian stone reliability of the B210. Somehow, whoever put this together----and they really did a nice job----- even got the MG valve cover (or, at least, the MG badge) on the Datsun engine. Check out the picture of the engine. The shift lever is MG; the pedal box is MG; the dash is MG. You cannot tell it is not all MG, except, again, it IS running and you can drive it instead of work on it.
This is RARE and will win peoples choice awards at most small shows. I tell you it is a grin.

British Racing Green, 1971 MG MGB Roadster

British Racing Green, 1971 MG MGB Roadster

As the title it's a roadster comes in green offered by British automobile manufacturer MG Cars to American user. It's a purely two-seater car has a four-cylinder performance engine in it, and was borned in 1971 as the MGB series.

Detail by owner
British Racing Green (BRG) 1971 MG MGB Roadster. The condition of the car is very good but it would 100% be regarded as "driver quality" (as opposed to Concourse). The paint has some imperfections (not overly noticeable) and there are a few dings and dents although they are not too noticeable either unless you are close to the car --this is evidenced by the pictures. Some would call it patina since the car is over 40 years old. It is important to know that there is no rust on the car or bondo/filler or fiberglass. The Previous Owner (P.O.) had all rust cut out and replacement panels/donor parts installed. This MGB is 100% solid. The engine (4 CYL) is a replacement re-build that was done several years ago (by P.O.). It maintains about 50 PSI and pulls strong!

For those that know a lot about MGs, you will notice that I removed the bumper overriders (Sabrinas) to achieve a sleeker look (I still have them if you want to bolt them back on). Also, I have replaced the guppy mouth grille with a more traditional grille (I liked the look better), added an LED license plate light that looks appropriate, and replaced the tail lights with ones from a '64 model since they look better (in my opinion). Additionally, I detached one of the three windshield wipers (the middle one) --it simply snaps back on if you want. Also, the emissions canister has been removed -they rob horse power and are next to useless anyway. Finally, there are no headrests. It looks better without them!

When I got the car, it needed a lot of work but now everything works; excluding the washer fluid pump. With the help of professionals like: Tim & Colin Corby, Hap Waldrop, John Twist, Mark Wolf, and others I have chased all of the gremlins out of this car and made sure to do things correctly. As a result, the car has a new battery (replaced about a year ago), new spark plugs and wires (replaced in the spring), new alternator, new distributor, new coil, new starter, new oil lines (the good overkill high pressure ones), most gaskets have been replaced, new throttle cable, new brake cable, all switches and lights have been replaced with reproductions, new gas tank, all new fuel lines, HS4 Carbs have been professionally restored by master British Carburetor expert Joe Curto less than a year ago, I have thoroughly gone through the wiring and checked and repaired as needed, the engine bay has been repainted, it has brand new tires and restored rims, the front suspension has been completely rebuilt with new coil springs and bushings, the rear suspension was rebuilt (by P.O.), also all of the lever-arm shocks have been refreshed and replaced as needed, a new stainless steel tourist trophy exhaust system has been added, the black canvas top was installed 5 years ago (by P.O.), and it even has a shiny new wood shifter knob with an inlaid MG logo that matches the wood motolita steering wheel.

So, here is what it needs: a break job --new shoes and pads, the speedometer cable needs to be replaced --I have a new one, and the thrust washers in the rear axle should be replaced at some point --not a huge deal and not a safety or damage issue if not done.

1970 MG MGB GT Comes With Chrome Wire Wheels

1970 MG MGB GT Comes With Chrome Wire Wheels

1970 MG MGB GT Comes With Chrome Wire Wheels

Very nice a British classic car was produced by MG Cars comes with chrome wire wheels on bright red hatchback, it's a MGB GT built in 1970. The combination of Red with the chrome wires looks great...

Detail about this car
This is a nice example of an early MGB GT. The bodywork and paint are in overall very good condition with just the odd age related marks. There is no rot or rust issues. The car has had a bare metal restoration some years ago but has stood the test of time well. The engine is working fine with no issues and the interior is good.

Nice early examples give a lot of character and fun for not a lot of outlay. Team this with such low running costs and values rising. This makes a very affordable way of enjoying the classic car scene.

Engine & Transmission
The engine is running well, with no oil pressure or temperature issues. The gearbox is working just as it should and the overdrive unit is all working fine. The car starts well and drives well. The brakes etc pull up nice and straight. The engine bay is clean but not detailed.

Wheels, Tyres & Brakes
Chrome wires are in fine order with new spinners added a few years ago. The radials are all matching and have been fitted recently.

Exterior The red paintwork is good. This was some time ago so car is not as new, but it presents very well, with no rust issues. The car is undersealed and there is no welding issues etc. The original chrome bumpers do have pitting but are representative of the cars age.

Interior & Equipment
The interior is in good condition. It has an centre console with gagues. Has a battery isolator in the rear. Period Mota Lita steering wheel. All in all a nice interior.
