American Spec: ’53 MG TD
The MG TC sold well so it is only natural to make improvements when you introduce the successor. One of the gripes from US buyers was the right hand drive. Since we Americans have no history with jousting, we prefer left hand drive. Therefore main difference between the TC and the TD is where you sit. Architecturally, everything else is pretty similar with modest improvements in power. The MG TD still used the 54-hp, 1,250-cc XPAG inline-four motor to reach a top speed in the mid-70 mph range, which meant the second of MG’s T-Series cars was a tad slower than the first.The MG T-Series delivers a pure 1940s British driving experience. Its mechanicals are robust and mostly easy to source, which makes ownership relatively straightforward. Today’s offering, sent in from reader Jake M., is special because it is a low mileage car in very original condition. In fact, the leather interior has survived all of these years and is in remarkable condition. It has been fully sorted by the seller so it could be road worthy by the time the snow melts. This one does have a heater so perhaps you don’t have to wait. It is a documented 3-owner car with 38,000 miles. Not often found, so if you want a pure vintage experience, this is it.
