Additional Info

MG T-Series.
This is a real 1952 MGTD with an incredible backstory. The original owner was a doctor that bought the car new and put 3,000 miles on the car when it was stolen by some kids taking it for a joy ride. They ran the car into woods and down a hill and abandoned it. They cut up the seats and took parts off the engine. It was found a year later and the doctor put in in the shop to be repaired. While in the shop, the doctor passed away. With no living relatives, the car remained in the back corner of the mechanics shop. The mechanic put a lien on the car and eventually took over the title.  When the Mechanic passed away in 1974, his three sons auctioned all of the cars, parts & tools and sold the real estate. The man that I bought the MG from purchased this MGTD with the intentions of restoring it. However he had just started a new business and his wife became pregnant with triplets and he was forced to sell the MGTD and two other Jaguars that he was restoring. I purchased the MGTD in1975. It needed a top, battery and upholstery. It drove amazing and everywhere that I took it for service people commented on the pristine condition of the car especially the frame and undercarriage. I put Antique tags on the car and drove it on weekends and holidays and to & from car events. Comically, I remember driving the MG and the odometer was at 9999.7 (original miles) and I was staring at the odometer to watch click over to 10,000 miles. It did. However, somehow, the odometer (thousand mile indicator) somehow synced (or got stuck) with the (tenth indicator). Every time the 1/10 number advanced, the one thousand umber advanced also and by the time I got home the odometer showed 28,000 miles for an increase of 18,000 in 1.8 miles. I let my wife drive the car one time and she told me that she could not find 3rd or 4th gear so she just drove the whole day in 2nd gear (grrrr on the expressway). The next day, I drove the car and the engine piston rod broke. I had the car towed and put the car into dry storage. One year later, I had the car towed to a mechanic that completely disassembled the engine, bored out the cylinders, put in oversized pistons. I picked up my car in 1979. I have never heard that engine run that good. It absolutely purred. I started my drive home and my electric fuel pump quit after .2 tenths of a mile. I had the car towed and put back into dry storage while I ordered a new fuel pump, ignition switch (I lost the key) and a new steering wheel. Meanwhile, my MG has been in a climate controlled dry storage since 1979. It needs a new top, battery, tires. There is some minimal rust in the rocker panels, From sitting, the 3 of the wheels are frozen and need to be broken loose. The engine is not frozen and I was able to turn it over with the crank. This should not be bought as a parts car because it has really potential. The frame is not bent or twisted and the body is solid. I am old and can no longer work on the car and give it the TLC that it needs. I really want my MGTD to go to a good homeThis MGTD actually has 14,848 original miles on the car and 2 tenths of a mile on the rebuilt engine.Feel free to contact me with any questions Thom [hidden information]
