1951 MG TD Motor Car


An exceptional MG TD 1951, restored and in excellent working order. New green exterior and red leather interior. Left hand drive.

The MG TD was introduced part-way through 1949 and featured an independent front suspension and hydraulic drum brakes. The 1250-cc four-cylinder engine developed just under 50 horsepower which was sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox. The series prior to the TD, the TC, was mostly right-hand drive vehicles.

Altering the TC to left-hand drive configuration was difficult and not cost effective; the TD resolved this issue. The chassis sat atop a steel box section unit with a traditional wood body frame and steel body panels.
