What We Like

There’s something to be said for knowing a vehicle’s ownership history. This MG TD was reportedly owned by the same family for more than 40 years and a refurbishment is believed to have been completed about 30 years ago. Although this MG has been driven very little in recent years, the selling dealer states the engine currently runs using an external fuel source, and is ready to be sorted further. With some mechanical TLC, this MG TD--offered at NO RESERVE--could be a great “driver,” or would make an ideal candidate for a full restoration… the choice is yours.

Seller Information

Vehicle History & Overview

This MG TD was reportedly owned by the same family for the last 40+ years and was refurbished about 30 years ago. The selling dealer acquired the car in December 2022 and states it was driven until about 1998, but has been used sparingly since. Although mechanical refurbishment is recommended to ensure roadworthiness, the selling dealer has run the engine using an external fuel source. This vehicle is technically a MkII model, however, the engine appears to be a standard XPAG unit--additional MkII components are also missing.

The MG TD was launched in 1950 as a successor to the much-loved TC. Although visually similar to its predecessor, the TD featured many major changes, including a new MG Y-type chassis, independent front suspension, a new 4-speed manual transmission, and a modified hypoid-geared rear axle. Other changes include smaller 15-inch road wheels, standard equipment bumpers with overriders, and a new left-hand-drive option. Americans loved the TD and reportedly bought more than 23,000 of them. Series production ended in 1953.
