MG-TD Mark II (1953)

Friday, March 11th, 2011

For Sale: MG TD MK II – This is a relatively rare MG-TD Mark II up for sale. There were only 1,710 Mark II’s ever produced. And, who knows how many are left? The TD features an inline 1248 cc 4-cylinder engine mated to a smooth 4 speed manual gear box. The exterior is finished in red with the paint showing some age in places. The car has no known known rust issues at all and as you can see from the featured pictures everything is solid. The updated interior is above average. Though the dash and gauges show age, the patina adds to the originality and authenticity of this awesome MG. The beige convertible top was likely replaced at some point and is in excellent almost-new condition. Though not a concours level car, this car will shine up very nicely and could be the pride of any British classic or sports car collection. Given the low build numbers of the TD MK II, this particular example could be a great investment opportunity for the smart car enthusiast.
