This is a very nice and properly restored Left Hand Drive MG TD. It is a 1951 car and. like nearly all TD's of this era. was sold new to the USA.
The penultimate T-Series Midget - the TD - appeared in 1949. A larger car than its predecessors. the TD owed much to the contemporary Y-Type saloon. using a narrowed and modified version of the latter's box-frame chassis. on which sat an all-new body roomier than before but retaining the classic looks of the traditional MG sports car and the well-tried 1. 50cc XPAG four-cylinder engine.
This saloon parentage was far from a handicap. for the Y-Type was a later and more advanced design than the TC Midget. employing independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. Although thoroughly traditional both in appearance and its coachbuilt method of construction. the TD body offered greatly increased 'elbow room' to its occupants when compared to that of the TC.
From August 1951 a larger clutch was fitted and associated changes made to the flywheel and bell-housing. subsequent cars being known as the TD II.
Our car comes with its original USA Title but is registered in the UK and all EU taxes have been paid. It was restored by Naylor Brothers in the late Nineties and still presents extremely well today. The car starts and drives exactly as it should and there is nothing that needs addressing. The wet weather gear is slightly aged and marked although it all works fine although is a tight fit!
The interior is in Tan and has aged well although would maybe benefit from a thorough clean.
We have a huge history with the car and many invoices. it came to the UK in 1989 and has only had three owners since then. The car has MOT until September 2013 and is ready for its next owner. it must be one of the nicest on the market today.
