MG's success in the United States after World War II was due in large part to returning GIs who, love-struck by the notion of nimble European sports cars, brought with them the TC Roadster. As an alternative to the offerings from Detroit, MGs provided enthusiasts with a light, attractive roadster that was great fun to drive. The MG TD for 1950 became even more popular than its predecessor and a sports car icon in its own right. Alongside traditional MG styling, it featured an all-new independent front suspension and rack and pinion steering.
This MG TD has been completely restored to concours quality. Everything on this car is either new and period-correct or has been rebuilt. Painted in MG Red with a tan leather interior, this car looks and drives as if it were new. It has only been driven 1,480 miles since the restoration was complete. Matching numbers. New convertible top, tonneau cover, and side curtains. This MG TD is ready to drive or show!
