Roadster
Chassis #: XPAGTD228344
Sold for $27,500 at 2010 RM Auctions - Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey.
Designed specifically for the United States market, the MG TD followed the TC in 1949. Its styling was very similar to its predecessor, though it brought with it many improvements. They had left-hand drive, a much stiffer welded chassis derived from the Type Y saloon with box-section side rails, rack-and-pinion steering, new 15-inch pressed steel ventilated wheels, and a fully independent suspension. The TD retained the engine and transmission of the TC, as well as its classic body, which was slightly widened and given front and rear bumpers.

Nearly three times as many TD models were sold during a four-year production run, than the prior TC.

This TD roadster has been given a body-off restoration and finished in Ivory Cream with a red leather interior, a tan canvas top and canvas side curtains. It has Lucas fog lamps, a boot cover, an owner's manual and a workshop manual.

In 2010, the car was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $20,000-$30,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $27,500 including buyer's premium.
