This MG has been in the family for it’s entire life in Newnan GA. It was removed from our barn around the year 2000 and sent out for restoration. As can be seen in the before pictures, it has always been in pretty good condition but underwent a “frame off” restoration and has not been used much since with the exception of a few Joy rides and some excercise runs. It is a 10 out of 10 and drives as nice as it looks. We are simply parting with things that we are no longer using. Comes with a zippered bag for storage and delivery can be arranged depending on where you live. Because of the prevalence of scam callers out there, please contact me through Auto Trader email and I’ll call you promptly. It has been appraised for more but I’d rather see it go quickly to a good home than squeeze every dime out of it.

HISTORY OF THE MG TDThe successor to the popular MG TC, the TD was first constructed in 1949 with MG eyeing the North American market who previously fell in love with the sporty appeal of the TC. Improvements over its predecessor were plentiful with the TD being five inches wider (for more room in the passenger compartment) while front independent suspension as well as rack and pinion steering greatly improved handling. Smaller wheels with bigger tires allowed for more refined front fenders while a now standard 4-speed gearbox allowed for higher speed cruising. The hand-built quality of the TD added to the charm and production of the model lasted until 1953. A perfect combination of pre-war style with post-war performance, the TD helped to solidify MG’s reputation as a sports car company. The MG TD is still viewed as a charming British roadster with timeless appeal. It is no wonder why examples are respected and collected in both professional and enthusiast circles.Please visit www.schmitt.com to view our full inventory.
To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Amelia Island event, 8 - 9 March 2019. Estimate:$15,000 - $20,000 Offered from the Leon-Hackney CollectionLong-term single-family ownershipAn iconic early post-war sports carOffered with original workshop and owner s manualsIn 1950, MG announced the production of the TD. Built on the Y-Type saloon chassis, it featured the prior TC series drivetrain with a modified hypoid rear axle, rack-and-pinion steering, and the availability of left-hand drive to further entice American buyers. The enhancements worked, with the large majority of MG TDs exported to North America. TD production ceased in 1953, when MG debuted its replacement, the TF. Arguably one of the more successful runs of MG vehicles, the T series was produced from 1936 to 1955.The right-hand-drive MG TD offered here has been part of the Leon-Hackney Collection for many years; while the exact date of acquisition is uncertain, it was likely during Jay and Berta Leon s 1970s heyday, as the last registration sticker is from 1978.In older but highly presentable overall condition, the TD is finished in a classic MG color scheme of red with a tan interior, disc wheels with chrome hubcaps, and blackwall tires, and still bears British registration plates. Additional charming features include a central driving light and badge bar. The paint is in good overall condition, while the interior shows very little use, though the steering wheel is not original. The engine compartment is tidy and presentable, with a modern brake booster visible, aiding in modern road use. At the time of cataloguing the car recorded 67,971 km. It is offered with original workshop and owner s manuals.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/am19.

The MG TD was made in England from 1949 to 1953 and helped establish the sports car craze in America. Powered by a 1250 cc inline 4 cylinder engine with a 4 speed manual transmission. The TD combined the TC drivetrain with a modified hyphoid geared rear axle with the MG Y-type chassis and a familiar T-type styled body.
