1951 MG MG-TD
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

In 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.
