The traditional MG: light, quick, with cut-down doors and flowing fenders, and that upright MG grille up front. Evolution was slow at Morris Garage, but theres a reason why cars like this 1950a MG TD were brought home by the hundreds by GIs returning from Europe, and why they remain wildly popular today. The look is pure pre-war, with separate fenders and a long hood, but the energetic handling and performance were quite contemporary. This MG has been beautifully restored, but not to the point where youre afraid to drive it, which misses the point entirely. The body construction was traditional, but that also means that its light and easy to repair, and this one shows no signs of serious damage or the MGs arch-nemesis, rust. Hood and door fit are quite good, and the bright red paint is a very correct-looking finish thats got a great shine but no metallic, so it looks right on the diminutive little roadster. It is nice enough to have been invited to the 2017 Atlanta Concours dElegance, and the overall presentation is what endears MGs to their legions of fans; this car gets the look right. Of course, things like the chrome grille, stand-alone headlights, and simple bumpers give it an old-fashioned look, and theyre all in good original condition, with the usual light pitting but nothing that needs immediate attention. Inside the cabin, theres adequate room for two once you settle into the low bucket seats and assume the proper driving position. In actuality, youll probably find its easy to spend hours behind the wheel without fatigue and theres plenty of room for two normal-sized folks so no complaints about long road trips in this neat little roadster. Well, maybe your cheeks will be hurting from grinning so much, but the driving experience is involving without being exhausting. The interesting split bench seat has been properly reupholstered in pleated black vinyl, which does a pretty good impersonation of leather without the added maintenance. Matching door panels are the essence of simplicity and black carpets with embroidered mats complete the ensemble. The real walnut dashboard houses an array of pretty Jaeger instruments that retain the vintage British look, and were particularly fond of the ornate metal center panel with the secondary controls. The original three spoke steering wheel has that traditional skinny rim and there are wind wings that help keep the cabin comfortable at speed. And since MG lovers are serious about their cars, this one includes a fresh black canvas convertible top and side curtains for the cockpit. The whole point of an MG isnt brute power, but theyre plenty peppy with the 1250 cc inline-four, and it has a wonderful baritone exhaust note thats half the experience. This one is a wonderful runner, firing up easily through dual side-draft SU carburetors inhaling through a single air cleaner. The whole engine is scarcely bigger than a briefcase, but all the parts are easy to get at and maintain, which is the whole point. Its also beautifully and authentically detailed, making this an MG you can show with pride almost anywhere. The engines linked to a slick-shifting 4-speed manual transmission whose light action and progressive clutch are the cornerstone of performance driving and youll never get tired of dropping down a gear to hear the engines song. The chassis is a simple ladder frame with an independent front suspension, a recent exhaust system, and it sits on painted wire wheels with appropriately tall 165R15 radial tires. One drive and youll see why its so easy to love an MG and why the market on these cars is on the way up. Call today!

Now available in our DFW-Showroom is this splendid 1950 MG TD. MG s TC roadster sold well initially and proved American demand for an English sports car, but the car s right-hand-drive configuration and 1930s specifications meant it was ripe for a redesign by 1950. In response, Syd Enever and Alec Hounslow took two weeks in 1949 to strip a four-seat Y-Type Tourer and shorten the chassis five inches. Just like that, the MG TD roadster was born. The TD also carried a few modifications aimed at the U.S. market. Specifically, left-hand drive was offered, along with rack-and-pinion steering, smaller, 15-inch steel disc wheels (no wire wheels were offered), and larger bumpers. In turn, the car was wider and 200 pounds heavier than the TC. Keeping with its predecessor, the TD s weather protection was minimal. This MG TD was fully restored in 2009 by K&C Seippel, (marked by the brass plaque on the firewall). After that, the fuel tank was cleaned and sealed around 2012. It also received a new coil and master cylinder in 2012. This vehicle has won multiple awards at different car-shows over the years and even have the plaques in the glove-box to prove it. This unique ride certainly stands out in a crowd and is a great conversation starter, don t let this opportunity pass you by.
