The MG TD is the very definition of charm. We dare you not to smile when driving it!
After WWII, there was a prevalent adage that "export or die" with industrial countries preparing for exports as a means of survival. Fortunately for the Abingdon-on-Thames-based MG firm, it achieved just that, and the factory was able to resume production with the pre-war T-type Midget. The success of the 1945 TC was bettered by the extensively facelifted 1950 TD thanks to its LHD format, but also its superior mechanical improvements and chassis design which went some way into re-establishing the T-type as a competent sports car.
With around 90% of cars being exported, the majority to the States, this RHD example of the TD is one of a rare breed of TD’s. The car has several undiscovered secrets to its life, having been imported out to India early in its life, followed by a spell in America in the ‘80s and ‘90s. This remarkably straight and beautifully presented example now lives a life of leisure following a full body restoration in 2006. As a car that attracts nothing but goodwill and smiles, this has to be close to the ultimate feel-good car to treat yourself for this summer.
