The engine bay is fully detailed throughout and supports the original MG brass vehicle identification plaques... Such fun to drive.


This original RHD Series "TD" was built May 1950. This TD was 1 of only 10 exported in CKD form, (knockdown form as a kit to be built in the destination country), to the city of East London, South Africa and dispatched 25th May 1950.

Fully restored in South Africa and returning back to the UK in 2009. The second UK enthusiast MG owner was not happy with the quality of the restoration work and subsequently carried out a full nut and bolt body off restoration over a 4 year period to create this incredible TD we have today, completed in 2020 and covered only 68 miles since. This TD sat proudly amongst his MG car collection it truly is second to none.

The history file is packed with hundreds of invoices for the restoration work, the parts alone total over £18, 780. There are pictures of the complete restoration including engine rebuild, MG Car Club original records and South Africa registration documents.

MOT until August 2022 and of course this MG TD is HPI Clear.
