An Unrestored 1950 MGTD (4618)

This car is currently being restored by Bill Reid in the USA. The car was originally an Ash Green color on the body and the wings were painted a darker, non metallic green. It originally had a green interior. Its last paint job was gray and at that time they sprayed the interior and the underside of the fenders red.

Note that it appears after detailed inspection that the grill was always a non metallic dark green until it was later sprayed red. Also some of the pictures appear to show dark green on a light green but after rubbing out the areas the color blends to the dark green color uniformly. All the green paint appears to be over black primer, which was commonly used at the factory.
