About this 1952 MG TD Replica

VIN: CA1196540

Details

This handsome 1952 MG TD Replica is a distinguished creation that blends classic allure with modern touches and has traveled just 67,887 miles since its build. Built by the current owner circa 1987, the vehicle was carefully stored for 27 years between the mid-1990s and early 2020s when it was uncovered and restored to its original condition. The fiberglass body is coated in a special Imron paint and clearcoat that has retained its shine, and the interior has been refreshed with new brown vinyl interior and brown carpets.

Built on a VW chassis, this kit is powered by a rear-mounted 1971 1600cc VW engine with a manual transmission. A manually operated canvas top is complemented by a tan-covered spare tire mounted to the rear. The only modification to the original kit is a Bluetooth-enabled Kenwood stereo added during the restoration process.

During the restoration process, a host of mechanical items were replaced, including the transmission, brakes, tires, and seals to ensure that this VW-driven classic will continue to operate at peak performance. Both third-party photographs and inspection show the car's quality condition. This MG replica has a CA-issued VIN, comes with one key, and is refreshed and ready for its next enthusiast.

This MG TD Replica is available in California as a Premium Listing on CLASSIC.COM and is being sold by Parker Frazier.

About the model

The MG T-Type is one of the most sought-after cars by enthusiasts of the British brand. It represents all the beauty of the cars from the 1930s to the 1950s, plus all the heritage and history it comes with. Scarcity and elevated prices for the original cars make them hard to find, with replicas and kit cars fulfilling the demand for this market. Many buyers consider it an advantage because better performance can be achieved while maintaining the vintage look.
