1952 MGTD 1250cc SPORTS CONVERTIBLE TOURER For Sale
1952 MGTD 1250 SPORTS CONVERTIBLE TOURER
Most attractively finished with maroon coachwork and beige leather trim and double duck mohair hood also finished in beige. This numbers matching MG has benefitted from a total ground up restoration between 1996-2000 and has covered a mere 24000 miles since the restoration with documented mileages. Further to this the car had an engine rebuild to unleaded specification some 9 years ago with only 2000 miles travelled since then. There has been one owner in Florida USA until, we have been reliably informed, it was sold to Exotic Automobiles in Hollywood in 1990 then sold to its first owner in the UK – Mr Brookes, followed by Mr Quarendon in 1997 and Mr Beckley in 2005 who has owned the car until just recently. The Motorcar is now being offered for sale for the first time in the last 14 years.
