The 1950 MG TD combined the TC's drivetrain. 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. Also new were rack and pinion steering. smaller
15-inch disc type road wheels. a lefthand drive option and standard
equipment bumpers with overriders. The car was also five inches
wider with a track of 50 inches. In 1950. the TD Mk. II was
introduced alongside the standard car. featuring a more highly
tuned engine with 8. 0:1 compression ratio giving 57bhp at 5500rpm.
It also featured twin fuel pumps. revised dampers. and a higher
rear-axle ratio. Nearly 30. 00 MG TD's had been produced. including
some 1. 00 Mk. II models. When the series ended in 1953. all
but 1. 56 were exported with 23. 88 of them to the United States.
An example tested by 'The Motor' magazine in 1952 had a top speed
of 77mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 18. 2 seconds.

This lovely example of a 1951 TD. presented in red with black. was
imported some years ago into Ireland as a very good re-built car.
Lefthand drive including a five speed gearbox conversion which. as
the vendor explains. enables this 1350cc engine to keep up with
modern day traffic without over-stretching. It has been re-sprayed
with lots of money lavished on her in recent years. this is a very
sound example of these plucky open tourers and is offered with a
brand new hood fitted for the new potential owner.

Offered with an Irish log book a new owner would need to re apply
for a V5 registration for the UK roads. but we feel this little
cracker may end up further afield unless you can tie her
down!
