(SOLD) This wonderful 1950 MG TD is an elegant model that is full of the style and design that collectors look for in a classic roadster.

The TD's exterior is presented in white, which is complimented by a set of steel wheels, polished center caps and a rear-mounted spare tire. The interior and dashboard of the TD is finished in a crisp shad of green, while the rear mounted spare tire and canvas Top are presented in Tan, giving the roadster an even more refined look and feel. Under the hood, the TD is powered by a strong 1,250-cc engine that is connected to a strong four-speed manual transmission that helps power what many have said to be one of the most enjoyable driving experiences found in a classic automobile. Don't miss the opportunity to experience a classic roadster that is loaded with the elegant style of yesterday combined with a quality driving experience that can be enjoyed today!
Few sporting cars have enjoyed the lasting popularity of MG’s T-Series roadsters. Beginning with the TA in 1936, these light and attractive cars opened a new world of affordable enjoyment, particularly for the many former GIs who first encountered them during wartime. The TD appeared in 1949 specifically for the U.S. export market, with carefully refined handling and left-hand drive. Its much-stiffer welded chassis was derived from the Type Y saloon and featured boxed side-rails, independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and new 15-inch ventilated wheels. The engine and gearbox of the TC were retained, as well as its classic body, now slightly widened and easily identified with new front and rear bumpers. In 1953, Britain’s Autocar wrote, “the feel of the car on the road inspires confidence and there is the impression that even an indifferent driver could make a good showing behind the wheel; however long the journey, the actual driving of the car is beguiling all the way.”
