1950 MG TD Roadster

Est. 54.4 bhp, 1,250 cc inline overhead-valve four-cylinder engine, four-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension, solid rear axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs, four-wheel drum brakes. Wheelbase: 94"

This particular MG TD was purchased in 1995 by its current owner in San Diego. The car had previously been in climate-controlled storage for 30 years following its donation to a charity. While it was running, totally rust-free and complete in every regard, it required significant cosmetic work. Although not original to the car, the engine is from a later TD and the transmission is likewise believed to be from a later car.

After acquiring the car, the vendor commissioned a professional restoration in 1998 with the intent of making the car a very capable driver. As such, it was restored to period correct standards in every respect with the exception of Michelin radial tires, TF-painted wire wheels, stainless steel exhaust system and turn signals, all of which were added for improved drivability. In addition to the original factory handbook, this TD comes with all invoices and a photo record from the restoration, workbooks used in the restoration and a tool kit with Whitworth wrenches and sockets.

Finished in red with a red leather interior and a tan top with a matching tonneau, this car is complete with side curtains and a car cover. Driven approximately 5,000 miles since the restoration, it is by all accounts an excellent car and a wonderful example of Britainís beloved post-war sports car, the MG TD.
