1950 MG TD description

This car is a very reliable early MG TD (VIN TD 0684) I have owned for 38 years. It was the 433rd TD car, built on Feb. 9, 1950. I had it restored in 1979-80 and have used it sparingly over the entire time since. Back then it was a "First-in-Class" show trophy winner, and is still a very beautiful, and reliable car. Mechanically, the car is excellent, and has no issues. I have consistently maintained the car in top condition, by routine service and using the best grades of correct oils (e.g. classic motor oil) in the engine and gearbox and transmission. Hoses were all replaced recently, and I am going through the car this week (which is why some of my pictures show the car on jack-stands in my garage) making sure all fluids are ready for the winter season.
The walnut dash board and restored fascia was built in 1980 by Craig Seabrook, and is beautiful. All instruments work and are the correct ones for this early TD (e.g. chronometric tachometer and speedometer, correct domed-glass on every instrument). The interior is 100% leather including all side and interior door panels, and looks and feels today as good as when I first had it installed. I have been treating the leather regularly using premium products. Special attention has been paid to getting the details of this car's restoration all correct.Included is a Bluemels/Brooklands steering wheel with the proper TD-hub, and the dash-facia painted black to complement the steering wheel color. A very attractive and vintage-correct option.
Other notable features of this car include the luggage rack, period-correct (1950 vintage MG) Lucas 462 fog light (note: two shown on the car in the photos, but I will keep one for my TC). The five tires have been recently replaced with Michelin-XZX 165SR15. Other options include: AMCO side wind deflectors, and a Brooklands hood strap - a period accessory that was installed many years ago. The car comes with complete weather equipment all Stayfast material: convertible top, all side curtains, and a full tonneau cover. There is a partial tool kit and a hand crank included.
I forgot to mention, previously, that I have the proper shop manual, and a few original brochures to go with this car.
This car was registered by me with the New England MG T-Registery back in 1979, and therefore has an early register number 6936. I have a very large file recording all historical work and restoration performed on this car. No rust ever anywhere, and excellent chrome.
I am selling this family heirloom (see photo from 1979 when my kids were small) in order to help purchase the car of my dreams.
