Description

1979 MGB
The 1950 TD Midget announced in January 1950 combined the TC's drivetrain forthemostpart, the MG Y-type chassis, a familiar T-type style body and independent suspension on front axle using coil springs from the MG Y-type saloon: a 1950 road-test report described as "most striking" the resulting "transformation ... in the comfort of riding". Also lifted from the company's successful 1¼-litre saloon was the (still highly geared) rack and pinion steering. In addition the TD featured smaller 15-inch disc type road wheels, a left-hand drive option and standard equipment bumpers and over-riders. 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.

This MGB is a super clean example equipped with every option offered by MG at that time. The car has electric overdrive, air conditioning, wire wheels, accent stripe, stereo, and luggage rack. The performance has been enhanced by retrofitting dual carbs from an earlier MGB and a free flow exhaust system. We have just serviced the car including new brakes and tires. Perfect for Fall drives!
