Lot 1902

Description:

1952 MG TD
Reg. no. YWG 547
Chassis no. TD14725
Engine no. XPAG/TD2/151447
The T-Type MGs were produced between 1936 and 1955, gaining in 1939 the excellent XPAG 1250cc engine which proved to be the car’s greatest strength, providing these lightweight 2-seaters with excellent performance for the time. Post-war, as British manufacturers were forced to ‘export or die’, the cars found great favour on the other side of the Atlantic, American owners proving more than willing to put up with the lack of creature comforts in exchange for a proper British sports car experience. Of the T-Series models, the TD was the most advanced, sharing a chassis with the Y-Type saloon and thus incorporating independent front suspension. Nearly 30,000 were made, over 23,000 of those being sold in the US.
This car, like many, was originally a US example – Ohio, specifically, whence it was imported in 2016. Appearing not to have been used for a long time, it has been treated to light restoration since its arrival and is largely solid, and running. It comes with a V5c.
