1952 MG TD C (Competition)


SOLD 1952 MG TDC (Competition)

An unusual and rare example within the MG marque, the MG TDC (Competition) Mk. II. It is commonly known that this model came into existence soon after the MG TD appeared onto the market due to the strong after market demand for parts and accessories to increase the performance of the model. Originally known as the Mk. II MGTD, the model was later called the TDC, the C representing Competition.

The original production TDC featured Andrex shock absorbers in addition to the standard items, larger 1.5 inch carburettors with increased inlet ports, right side bonnet bulge to incorporate the larger carburettors, larger intake manifold and air cleaner, larger valves, increased compression ratio, higher rev limit to 6,000 rpm, twin electric fuel pumps and lines and a higher performance ignition coil. Externally, the badges, unique to the model, were enamelled black and white as a mark of respect on the death of Cecil Kimber. Only 1,710 examples were manufactured.

Finished in British racing green with new biscuit upholstery, black carpets and double-duck hood etc.

Recent american import, fully registered with all duties paid. Possibly the best time to purchase a 'T' type while values are at an all time low.
