1950 MG TD ROADSTER #TD2912. (Stock #3606.) American servicemen discovered MG’s while overseas and many brought MG TC’s home with them. MG responded to this overseas demand in 1950 by making a more “modern” version of that car--the “TD”-- one which could be ordered with left-hand (American side) steering as opposed to the TC’s only being offered with right-hand drive. The new TD was powered by a twin carburetor, 1250 cc, 4-cylinder engine coupled to a 4-speed manual transmission with a cruising range of upwards of 350 miles on one tank of petrol. With the windscreen folded down, the car has a decidedly classic racing pose and, with the windscreen raised and the top and side curtains in place, the car becomes an all-weather tourer. Our car is one of those TD’s delivered new to America and is a pristine “Black Plate” California car. Restored as original in black with dark red leather and black canvas top and side curtains. The car is one of those rare examples which actually drives exactly as these cars are supposed to and it is a real treat to be behind the wheel—with the windscreen up or folded down with that competition look. This is also one of the very rare examples fitted with the very rare and curious “Midge” radiator cap mascot. A gorgeous car is fabulous condition throughout. Being the amazingly original car which it is, our car is accompanied by its original owner’s manual, shop manual, parts manual and showroom brochure. 71,941 miles. $29,000.
