1950 MG TD ROADSTER for sale. Motorcar Classics is proud to present this superb 1950 MG TD Roadster. Featured in Red with Tan interior and matching Tan top. This fine MG comes to us from its third owner, an enthusiast who owned and cherished the car for 43 years! Over that time the car was was restored to the last bits and pieces and there is a substantial history file included. The work was spread over long periods as the owner had time and money to do the work properly, and the car moved with him and his family a number of times. In the late 1970s the engine was sent to McBetts Racing in Copiague, NY they bored it .040 over and rebuilt the head. The clutch was replaced as well.The owner took the body completely apart and replaced all the wood with the exception of the doors, that were sound. While living in Virginia the car was sent to Bob & Pegs Vintage Tin where they took the car down to the frame, and painted the frame, engine, transmission, and body. The car was painted California Red and there are receipts for some $8K worth of work and pictures. The owner and the car returned to New York in the early 90s. The owner had the gauges rebuilt by Nisonger and he added a temperature gauge to the oil pressure gauge. The carburetors were sent for rebuild to Joe Curto. The car was sent to Mannings Imports in Glen Head, NY, in April of 2014 to be re-wired and re-commissioned to get it back on the road. Manning installed a new interior and put a new top and side curtains on the car. They rebuilt all the brakes and boiled out the gas tank and had it coated. Mannings worked on the car for 6 months and the receipts are in the documentation. The owner added turn signals, electronic ignition and an electronic fuel pump for added reliability. The rims were powder coated and new tires were put on in 2014. This fine TD is an original matching number car that has never been rusted and has always been garaged. The headlights, parking lights and taillights are original as is the body with the exception of the bumpers and over riders. The hand crank is present behind the seat. The correct jack is in the tool box. The car also has a period correct after-market heater. It throws out quite a bit of heat and keeps you warm on those chilly days. Amazingly, the car only has about 100 plus miles on the engine since rebuild so it is still being broken in!Post WWII American servicemen discovered the joys of these simple and nimble roadsters and they were subsequently imported to the US in large numbers. For many people these T series cars were their introduction to sports cars, and a lot of racing drivers started out the MGs. For collectors today these cars still offer the virtues of fun and simplicity. They are easy to work on and virtually any part is available brand new. With the top down, they are ideal for cruising back roads and challenging your favorite twisty bits. This is one of the best-kept MGTDs that we have had the pleasure to offer. The restoration is all well-done and authentic, making this car a great candidate to drive or show. It would also make a wonderful tour car as it is delightful to drive. Bring your string-back gloves!
