Owner Purchase – Same family ownership since 1964

Under the same single-family ownership since 1964, this MG TD was recently restored over a period of time beginning in 2014 and completed in 2021. Combining efforts by the owner and specialized vendors, over $41,000 in parts and labor were committed to the restoration, not including hundreds of hours invested by the owner. A numbers-matching California car since delivery, the documented restoration has resulted in a beautifully finished car with excellent quality both mechanically and cosmetically.

The car starts, runs, stops, and drives very well with excellent road manners. The underside of the car is equally finished with attention to detail consistent with the quality of the restoration throughout the car.
