1950 MG TD

3 owner MG TD. Purchased it 11 years ago and almost immediately embarked on a frame off nut and bolt restoration.  Very correct a restoration. It is a matching numbers example w/period modifications which included a Mota LIta wood wheel, aluminum rocker cover, 1 1/2 " Mark II SU carbs and later convex gauges. The combination leather and vinyl interior came from Moss. The Stayfast convertible top and side curtains were purchased from Moss and installed by Pete Simonson (Maximilian Classics). Some of the chrome was done locally in here in NJ but the key pieces were done by Paul's Chrome in Pa. The paint is PPG single stage ureathane in the correct shade of Ivory. The guages were restored by Nissonger. The correct cloth wrapped wiring harness was sourced from Rhode Island Wiring. The original springs front and rear were powder coated as were most of the suspension pieces.  The original hardware was refinished and reused where feasible and correct replacement was sourced whenever possible.  All the hardware is covered in Eastwood Diamond clear and the chassis was sprayed internally as best as possible with their proctective coating. It took 6 years to get it on the road and another 4-5 years to really sort it out. Improvements we made include a breather system off the rocker cover to one of the pancake air filters similar to a TF and Moss's adjustable clutch linkage rod (the original cable is included).  Owner tried in every way to achieve perfection and correctness. After almost every excursion owner wiped engine and spray wax under the fenders (which are ceramic coated) to maintain it as best as possible. The owner put approximately 5,000 miles on it since its restoration. Won the Chairman's Choice Award at Lime Rock Sunday in the Park Concours. One of the best you will find for the price.
