Inskip Tourer
Chassis #: TD23255 EXLNA
Sold for $35,750 at 2007 Monterey Sports and Classic Car Auction.
This vehicle is a 1953 MG TD Inskip Tourer fitted with a 1250cc four-cylinder engine capable of producing nearly 60 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic brakes.

The TD was a very popular vehicle, with sales reaching 10,000 units in two versions. The most exclusive version is often thought to be the Mark II or the Bertone-bodied Arnolt MG's, however, the honor goes to the Inskip four-seat touring models as only twelve were built.

Based in NY, J.S. Inskip was an importer for MG and other European automobiles during the late 1940s. Inskip felt there was a market for four-seater versions of the MG sports car, as Morgan and Singer had enjoyed success with their versions. Inskip enlarged the frame of a stock MG TD by ten inches. Longer unning boards and doors were fabricated and Rolls-Royce door hinges were added. A rear seat was added, as well as rear fender stone-guards, and knock-off wire wheels. The two-seater MG TDs had factory bench seats while the Inskip models were given front bucket seats.

This Inskip MG has been treated to a restoration some time ago, though still shows well in modern times. It is finished in bright red paintwork and black leather interior. There is a complete set of side curtains, a Inskip Lion radiator hood ornament, Lucas road lights, luggage rack, and tri-bar headlamps.

This vehicle was brought to the 2007 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction presented by RM Auctions, where it had an estimated value of $60,000 - $80,000. it was offered without reserve which worked well for the buyer who purchased this car for $35,700 including buyer's premium.
