The original MG marque was in continuous use, except for the duration of the Second World War, for 56 years following its inception in 1923. The 1950 TD Midget was announced in January 1950. A 1950 road test report described as "most striking transformation in the comfort of riding". For the driver the all weather protection was good by the standards of the time.
Nearly 30,000 TDs had been produced, including about 1700 Mk II models, when the series ended in 1953 with all but 1656 exported, 23,488 of them to the US alone. An example tested by The Motor magazine in 1952 had a top speed of 77 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 18.2 seconds. A fuel consumption of 26.7 miles per imperial gallon was recorded.

This MGTD offered here had spent most of its life with one local family. In 1998, the family decided to have the car restored to as new condition and brought it to our shop. We completely rebuilt the MG frame up and finished in the year 2000, just in time for a family members last ride. The car was later stored for a number of years until a family member decided to part with it. We then performed necessary maintenance and refreshed the matching number motor. The car has less than 7000 miles since the restoration was completed. The car comes complete with tan canvas side curtains, tonneau cover, and convertible top. It also has a hand tool kit with original jack, engine crank, owners handbook, and factory shop manual. Everything works including the clock. It is a stunning example that represents the TD model as it appeared when new. This TD can be driven down the less travelled roads with great enjoyment experiencing automotive history as it was.
