Here's one of the most interesting propositions you're going to see in a while - a 1952 MG TD replica. Why do you want a replica of this classic roadster? Because now you get to save thousands $$$$ while also picking up a more modern and powerful running gear. So it's the perfect classic appearance that you can take out for a drive on a moment's notice.
The MG grille, long flowing fenders, low-cut doors, and rear-mounted spare tire cover all make this a car that few people will give a second thought to its seemingly British heritage. Even the creamy white and brown two-tone seems to have the same kind of classic English appeal as a tweed jacket. But the great part is you really know that this is all corrosion-free fiberglass. This replica was done by British Coach Works, and they seem to have a nice feeling for quality. You see it in the way the panels fit together and how the brightwork is shiny and intricate. Even the details are nice with pinstriping that unites both two-tone colors. And while this is a great sunny-day cruiser, you also have a proper convertible top with zip-in windows when needed.
The interior goes for a very authentic feeling that starts with the correct seat configuration: individual lower pads and a shared seatback. The tan vinyl coordinates well with the exterior earthtones, and the material is repeated on the doors for a very uniform appearance. The real wooden curved dash continues this MG replica's feeling of authenticity. The driver gets to enjoy the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and ahead of that is a full set of Classic Instruments gauges, including a large speedo and tach. Plus, the working heater and AM/FM radio behind the seats means you can genuinely take this one on a weekend getaway.
The reason why we are so insistent about spending some time with this roadster out on the road is because of the motor. It's powered by the 1.6-liter borrowed from the Chevrolet Chevette. This is actually an Isuzu origin, so British inspiration with Japanese ingenuity makes for a similar recipe we all loved in the Mazda Miata. Add in front disc brakes, modern tires, and a three-speed automatic transmission, and you soon realize this is the one for a superior feeling out on the open road.
European design, Japanese engineering, and American execution – this is an international all-star. If you love to drive your vintage machines, this is truly the best bang for your buck. Call today!!!
