A UK supplied MG TD from new, built on the 24th April 1952, registered KTR 111 and Clipper Blue from new. There is a file record showing the car was in the Hampshire area which concurs with the previous owner saying they bought it from a specialist based in the New Forest in 1993. Subsequently exported to Guernsey, where it attended events and rallies with very little use over the last few years. The car is still Guernsey registered.
In 2021 the car had extensive re-commissioning work undertaken to include the brakes; clutch; cooling system; electrics; fluids replenished and now running and driving as it should be.
Finished in the rare colour of Clipper Blue, which was not a standard factory colour, however you were able to specify colour and the car was built to that specification. Closer inspection shows the wooden frame and metalwork to be in very good original condition. It looks like the car has been painted in its life - some time ago, but it still presents well. Painted wire wheels are fitted, which is an unusual addition for a TD.
The interior has what looks like the original carpets, interior leather and weather gear, all in good order and nicely mellowed with age. A very efficient heater is also fitted for those winter drives. The car has a hood, tonneau cover and side screens, all in good condition.
A very original matching numbers example of the model, in good solid condition that drives very well after recent commissioning works have been undertaken. In a very rare colour with black leather trim and a pleasure to drive. Additional pictures are available on request and we can assist with the import process if required.
