Only 1700 of the Mark II competition units were sold during the production of the TD series. Less than 1000 were imported in 1952 into North America.
This roadster is mechanically as original as possible. Many parts have been rebuilt through the years. Parts that were replaced had no feasible option to rebuild. Runs good and needs a home where it can be appreciated.
My family has owned this classic since 1954, and it has been garaged always. My father raced it until 1956, when my mother took it over and drove it daily until the late 1990's. It is not original MG red but the paint matches the convertible roof and side curtains replaced about 40 years ago. It has a new tan half tonneau cover.
I had major mechanical restoration done about two years ago including:
brakes- new shoes and wheel cylinders (brakes need re-adjusting)
new master cylinder
new brake hoses
custom rebuild of ORIGINAL Andrex friction shocks
etch and clean gas tank
install gas tank liner
new fuel pump (previously modified from two to one but second could be easily added)
rebuild ORIGINAL carbs
converted to electronic ignition
tune- replace plugs and wires
rebuild starter, replace switch and coil
new battery (previously converted to negative ground)
rebuild oil & temp gages, repair ammeter
Full documentation of work done (over $10,000) is available. The Houston area mechanic that did the work specializes in MG restorations and commented it was one of the most original Mark II's he had ever seen.
