The car is being featured on Cajun Pawn Stars Wed. August 1, 2012 on the History Channel.
Complete body off frame restoration over 20 years ago.
Has been in closed garage storage for about 10 years.
This is a car for a hardcore sports car fan.
Top speed about 90 mph.
The MG-TD is noted for its low torque and hill climing ability in trials in England.
Current value running. $17,000 to $20,000.
Will appreciate in value as time passes.
I have seen some sell for in excess of $25,000.
Needs tires, brakes, and possibly gas tank.
Engine has less than 2000 miles from a total rebuild.
Was rebuilt under supervision of a Rolls Royce factory certified master mechanic and an aircraft certified mechanic. No expense was spared.
Every option made. Brookland racing windshields.
Adjustable oil pressure device.
Even red, spring loaded reflectors to hold the lisence plate on…
.. Much more!
Two sets of SU Carb’s
A set of Amaco black side windows never assembled…
Chrome plated, aluminum valve cover and side plate cover…
It is not currently running…But parts are easy to find. Example: www.mossmotors.com
Estimated cost to get running again about $2,ooo to $3,000.
Current owner is 72 and getting rid of his toy’s.
Car has had licence maintained and is up to date.
Antique car insurance is costing the owner $100.00 per year.
Also has a 1953 Louisiana plate for shows…
Was a show winner and could still be with a little tender love and care.
The asking price is $14,000….
This car has not been wrecked and all parts are original……
If you do your own work, it would save you even more.
The three owners were a professor at UCLA in California, a Marine Major who lived in Woodworth and the current owner. In pictures of the TD you will see a red TR4, TR6 and a Corvette. These are cars the current owner has had at one time or the other. He will be glad to offer advise and help if you purchase the MGTD.
E-mail email@example.com Alex will put you in touch with the owner.
Lately I have been trying to understand how some one can buy a rundown car for 6 or 7 thousand dollars..put 20 thousand in it..have a car worth 1o to 15k and be proud of them selves.
You can take this car for 14k..put 2 or 3k in it and end up with a car worth 17 to 20k and have an investment gain…I will never understand folks who do not balance their investments…
As of August 11, 2012. No one has expressed any interest or contacted the owner.
It is still for sale.
