This is a well-cared for 1953 MG-TD. A frame-on restoration was just completed, about 40 test miles since completion. The car has been stored and worked on in a heated garage for the past several years.
The car runs and drives great. The only reason I am selling it is because my better half has been steering me to the realization that I have too many vehicles. Maybe. Maybe not.
