1952 MG “KT” Vintage Racing Special

1952 MG “KT” Vintage Racing Special

This MG “KT” Vintage Racing Special is being offered due to the owner’s health problems. The seller explains it here:

“This beautiful car was built on a TF chassis in 1977 from mostly TD parts by renowned MG expert, Lawrie Alexander. Registered as a 1952 MG TD, the “KT” nickname came about because the aluminum bodywork was styled to resemble a K3. It was used for vintage racing from 1978 through the mid-80’s, competing very successfully at tracks such as Riverside, Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta and Willow Springs, as well as numerous VARA sprints. Victories included the all-MG race at the Monterey Historics in 1980. The car was also used for many MG club events in and around California. Sold in 1989, it spent some time in the Midwest until being stored away in a climate-controlled garage in 1993 where it languished until Lawrie re-purchased it in 2007.”

“After a complete mechanical overhaul, it returned to use for local MG club events, and then the engine was rebuilt so it could go racing again. In addition, the front spindles and steering arms were Magnafluxed, all four splined hubs were replaced with new ones on new bearings, and new 15” Dayton 54-spoke wire wheels with new Blockley racing tires were installed. An easily removed custom roll-bar was fabricated from race-approved steel tubing and a driver’s 5-point seat belt was added. Since its “rebirth” as a racecar, it has competed at Sonoma Raceway, Laguna Seca, Thunderhill and Buttonwillow.”

“For street use there is a full-width windshield, a set of 5 (new in 2011) 16” Dayton 54-spoke wire wheels fitted with Vredestein Sprint Classic tires, one of which can be side-mounted in true classic style. There is also a “street” exhaust system.”
