Vehicle Description

With its sweeping wheel arches, free-standing headlights and distinctive radiator grille, the unmistakeable styling of the MG Midget T series was popular enough to keep sales figures up for nearly twenty years. Many decades later, these cars are still among the best known British sports cars.

This 1952 MG TD in the classic colour combination of red paintwork and black leatherette interior and convertible top was imported from the US. Its 1250 cc four-cylinder engine with 40 kW (54 hp) of power runs smooth, it is mated to a four-speed manual gearbox.

The paint, a solid respray, is free of any discernible evidence of rust or rot. The front right wing shows a prior damage. The canvas top has traces of use, but is in working condition. The chrome parts are mostly in good shape, with slight peeling at the boot lid trim strip. The typical boot-mounted spare wheel and four side screens are included.

The dash features speedometer, voltmeter, oil- and water temperature gauges and a rev counter. The interior looks well-kept  and presentable. A beautiful wooden steering wheel and a centre armrest complete the overall picture of this truly classic British roadster, which a recent Classic Data appraisal has evaluated at € 37,800 (condition 2+). It comes with historic plates.


 

The 4th generation of MG’s T Midget series was presented in 1949. The TD became by far the most successful of them all, with 29,664 vehicles built over 4 years, the large majority of which were exported to the US.

It marked a great technical advance over the predecessor, using the chassis from the Y type sedan, which had independent suspension with coil springs. On this, the tried-and-tested TC’s drivetrain and the recognisable T-type style body were fitted. The result was a car that was both traditional yet up-to-date. It was also slightly larger and the 1250 cc OHV inline-4 cylinder engine now delivered 55 hp.

As of 1950, the TD Mk II was available, which differed on the engine side by having a higher compression ratio, resulting in an increased performance of up to 63 hp. It also had a higher ratio rear-axle and modifications to fuel pumps and dampers.

Due to the popularity of this car, plenty of replicas were built after production of the original T series ended in 1955.
