The car you are looking at right now is a 1952 MG TD Roadster. It is an excellent condition running and driving original car. Records indicate it has had one repaint in its existence. Owner's Manual and Original Tool Kit Components Included, Original Hand Crank Included and Service Records. Really impressive amount of original documentation from factory and dealer. Documentation indicates special request wire wheels and wood dashboard. Includes all original Side Curtains and canvas convertible top -- the top materials is fragile like an archaeological artifact; there is also a brand new full needlepoint top included. All license plates mounted on car are included, including original 1952 plate. Clean and clear Florida title is included. Heritage certificate included. Price and transport negotiations welcome. This is part of an estate sale and it will be sold to the individual or entity making the highest unencumbered offer, without reserve.  The car runs and drives very well  -- it has not been regularly on the road in 15+ years and up until doing this eBay presentation it had not been started in 15+ years of storage. Always stored indoors and drained of all fluids before storage 15 years ago, it recently was given some fuel, new coolant/anti-freeze, grease fittings greased, oil replaced, hand cranked 20 revolutions to distribute oil, battery replaced, electric starter engaged and it started immediately and ran smoothly and quietly. A video was taken of this first start in more than 15 years.
Half an hour later it was driven for additional videos to be done.  There are several videos below, and a summary photograph album containing about 100 pictures, and below that there is a library album with more than 3,500 pictures (three thousand five hundred pictures) of this car to answer questions of molecular detail for the most discerning buyer. Offers are encouraged. Buyers from anywhere in the world are welcome and flexible transport assistance will be provided.

360 Degree Walkaround While Idling Cold:

First Start in 15 Years:

Cold Idling Engine Close-Up:

Passenger Door Close:

The following is an album of 86 pictures of the car, selected to create a summary from the album below that contains 3,500+ pictures.

The following album has more than 3,500 pictures of the car and is a complete repository of every minute detail of the car. I apologize that about 15% of the pictures are out of focus -- please just skip those quickly. Others that seem out of focus at first glance, actually are focused on a specific area of focal length within the frame and the rest of the photo is out of focus. With a fast internet connection, you can view all of them in about 25 minutes.


Cold take off on street:

I am very flexible with payment terms, transport coordination, potentially contributing to your transport costs, flexible on the purchase price, storage, etc. Inspections, test drives, etc., as all are welcomed. Any inspections must take place prior to official offer submissions. The car is a great driver or show car. Mechanical and accessory features of this car work properly, and the paint and body are in excellent shape. A deposit of $500 is due immediately if you use the Buy-It-Now, or within 24 hours if buyer has negotiated an agreed price. The remainder of the purchase price is due within 7 calendar days including the day of the ended listing on eBay (i.e., the day when you "purchased" it on eBay by clicking Buy It Now or I accepted your offer). Storage for up to 2 months is allowed at no cost to you, in other words it's FREE to store your car for 2 months. There are no additional fees that I will charge you, for storage, or anything else -- you pay me only the purchase price established on eBay. However, I am not comfortable storing it beyond 2 months and you will incur significant fees if you leave the car to stay longer than that, of $30 per day with a minimum charge of $100. For the remainder of money due after your deposit I will not accept checks of any kind, neither bank checks, nor personal checks, certified checks, nor official checks, nor registered checks or otherwise....none are accepted, period. You must pay by bank wire transfer or cash in-person. I am glad to speak to you on the phone about the car. I have 100% positive feedback going back years on eBay, and it is extremely important to me that you are satisfied. With cars people say it is very hard to satisfy people, but for me that has never been the case that it's hard to satisfy people; I think it is easy to satisfy people. You just treat them the way that you would like to be treated, fairly and honestly and with honor and integrity. If you have been looking for a car that will increase in value, you should buy the rarest and most desirable one you can afford. This is an excellent example of a car that will always increase in value, be solid and reliable, and present well for any occasion, practical use or show.
