The MG TD followed the TC in 1949 and was intended specifically for the U.S. market. Despite the familial resemblance to its predecessor, the TD featured many improvements and was raced heavily during the 1950s.

Given MG’s rich competition history, it was only natural that the TD would also be made available in ready-to-race form from the factory, or with a factory-supplied tuning kit. These cars were known alternatively as the TDC or TD MK II.

This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in October of 2010 at the Hershey Lodge, Hershey, Pennsylvania.

55 bhp, 1,250 cc overhead-valve inline four-cylinder engine, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with wishbones and coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 94".
