The MG T series included the TA. TB. TC. TD. and TF Midget models. a range of body-on-frame convertible sports cars produced in a sequence from 1936 to 1955. The 1950 TD Midget combined the TC's drive train. a modified hypoid-geared rear axle. the MG Y-type chassis. a familiar T-type style body and independent suspension using coil springs from the MG Y-type saloon: a 1950 road-test report described as “most striking” the resulting “transformation … in the comfort of riding. Also lifted from the company's successful 1¼-litre saloon for the TD was the (still highly geared) rack and pinion steering. In addition the TD featured smaller 15-inch disc type road wheels. a left-hand drive option and standard equipment bumpers and over-riders.
This MG TD chassis number ‘TD2780' was built in Abingdon on 16th August 1950 and exported to South Africa where it has remained until being imported back to the UK earlier this year.
The last owner in Knysna bought the car as a restoration project in 2011 and has spent the last 3 years rebuilding it. The list of the work carried out. including lots of new parts imported from Moss includes all the trim and carpets. hood. windscreen. brakes. stainless exhaust system. shock absorbers and new marine ply flooring. The engine has been rebuilt during the present ownership and has only covered 1540 miles since.
It is finished in a lovely bright blue with a grey leather interior and grey weather equipment and sits on its original steel wheels with chrome hub caps. Its chrome work is good and has just been serviced. MoT'd (although exempt) and UK registered and is now ready to go. A wonderful example of this iconic British open sports car which is a joy to drive.
