THE T-SERIES MG

The penultimate T-Series Midget, the TD appeared in 1949. A larger car than its predecessors, the TD owed much to the contemporary Y-Type saloon, using a narrowed and modified version of the latter's box-frame chassis, upon which sat an all-new body - roomier than before but retaining the classic looks of the traditional MG sports car and the proven XPAG four-cylinder engine. This saloon parentage was far from a handicap, for the Y-Type was a later and more advanced design than the TC Midget, employing independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. It became the 'gateway drug' for an entire generation of sports car enthusiasts and became a staple of early post-war American sports car racing competition.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This lovely TD was restored to have been sympathetically restored in the prior ownership about 20-25 years ago in New Hampshire. Repainted but retaining what appear to be the original leather seats, it was acquired by the current owner about a dozen years ago. Finished in Black over Red leather with a Red painted grill, it has been sparingly driven in the present ownership but is reported to be a fine driver.

A perennial favorite of enthusiasts around the world, the MG T-series is a back to basics, traditional motoring experience. This finely presented example will surely make for a wonderful motoring companion for its next caretaker.
