Signage: By 1949, the MG TC had become outdated. When it was originally released, it was a slight improvement of TB version that was designed prior to World War II. MG (Morris Garages) Car Company answered the call for a more modern car by introducing the TD in 1950. It was a smashing success with almost 30,000 produced in just 3 years. The handling was much improved from the earlier TC as it offered independent double A-arms and coil springs in the front. The brakes were also significantly better which transformed the TD into a reasonable sports car, making the TC feel as outdated as it was.
