End of the Line: ’53 MG TD
The sports car craze in the US started after WW II when the GIs in post-war Europe fell in love with the light, low slung European marques. When the GIs returned from their tour they brought home a sports car. Eventually a distribution and dealer network became firmly established and the rest is history. One of the most popular cars of the era was certainly the MG. It is a traditional sports car that evokes the romantic days of wicker picnic hampers and bucolic country roads. You remember Oliver Barrett IV falling in love with Jennifer Cavilleri and cavorting around in a MG TC, don’t you (Love Story, the movie)? What we have here today is an MG TD and one of the last few hundred before they ended production at Abingdon in favor of the TF. Anyone know why there wasn’t a TE? Since it is a later TD, it has a newer design XPAG Motor. It is an older restoration of good quality so it has softened with age and not fallen apart. In other words, it has patina and that is okay for a nice driver. The finish is said to be smooth and there are no known rust issues. The nice part about this offering is that it comes form one our favorite dealers. They find good cars and present them well. It is on eBay and you can get there by clicking here.
