DESCRIPTION
1953 - MG TD Mk II left-hand drive, fully restored with restoration booklet.
This wonderful TD is the last version with the headlights outside and it was built in only 1700 copies out of a total of 29,664 TDs, it is therefore the most sought after.

The copy at auction was imported in UK from the USA in 1990 and underwent a first restoration by the English owner, who kept it until 2014 when, due to age limits, decided to sell it. After the purchase I decided to carry out a complete restoration:

· Disassembly of the bodywork (removable parts), sandblasting, epoxy base and painting, sandblasting and powder coating of the wheel rims, new tonneau.
· Service of instruments, dashboard wood, electrical system, new switches and dashboard controls.
· Engine disassembly and major service, replacement of clutch and pressure plate, replacement of front brakes, complete overhaul of carburettors, new polished stainless steel silencer, linings and stuffing box, oil filters.
· Replacement of headlights (LHD tripod), all rubber seals, exterior mirror and various instrument switches.
· Electric fan assembly.
· New Michelin Vintage XZX tyres of the time.

All work is documented with photos and the relevant invoices. Now it is really neat and it doesn't require any further work; since the end of restoration I travelled about 800 km participating (successfully) in some brand rallies.
Car is registered at ASI and MG TD Register UK, certifying it has matching numbers.
