This is a very attractive 1953 MG TD Sports. finished in Green with Tan Interior. It is a US Supplied Left Hand Drive example imported and registered to the UK in 1990. It is an older restoration which still looks and drives very well indeed. These little cars are very good value at the moment and provide a real classic experience of the pre war cars with a few more creature comforts.
"The Midget is the survival of what. in the opinion of many people. is the right sort of small sports car. It caters for those who look upon motoring not as a means to an end. but as an end in itself. Many thousands of these little cars are succeeding admirably in providing their owners with something that will. at one moment. journey forth and do the shopping and. at the next. take part in serious competitive events or tackle a 400-mile journey with zest. " The Autocar. 15th May 1953.
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. upon which sat an all-new body - roomier than before but retaining the classic looks of the traditional MG sports car and the proven 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 compared to that of the TC. It became the 'gateway drug' for an entire generation of sports car enthusiasts and became a staple of early post-war American sports car racing competition.
This fine example has a long tax and MOT and runs beautifully and really needs nothing. The interior is very nice. the colour scheme is superb. the paint very nice. it is ready for immediate use. is priced very well and needs to be seen to be appreciated. There is a nice history folder with the car and the previous owner has used and enjoyed the car for the previous 25 years.
