The seller of this California black plate 1952 MG TD lists it as an original paint car which caught our attention. This is almost unheard of on any British car from this era so if it is the case that would be very special. However, the seller’s description is very thin and the original paint claim is scaled back to an “appears to be” descriptor. The repainted gas tank is one thing even the seller admits to.
This 1973 MGB GT has only 31,000 original miles on it and retains its original paint, interior, engine and even the emissions system (something that was usually discarded years ago). The seller indicates it just came out of long term storage and the only repair work that was required was to the clutch hydraulics. Any long term MGB owners can relate to this.
