I usually stay away from anything like this but I figured I would go ahead and make a post about the mg td kit cars I have seen for sale on craigslist and other places around the web.
For those of you who do not know the MG TD was a 2 seat convertible made by MG. The TD was produced from 1950 to 1953. The car featured high gearing, rack and pinion steering, and had a smaller 15-inch (380 mm) disc type road wheel. In addition it had a left-hand drive option and standard equipment bumpers and over-riders. The car was about 5 inches (130 mm) wider with a 50 inch (1,300 mm) Track.
Under the hood the driver enjoyed a face melting 57hp that would propel the MG from 0-60 in about 18 seconds while achieving 22mpg.
Over the years many, MANY kit car manufactures produced copies of the MG TD. MG only made 30,000 of them, but I would imagine there are 3 times that many MG kit cars around in various stages. Some of the better known MG TD Kit Cars were produced by …
British Coach Works
Classic Roadsters, LTD
Classic Motor Carriages
London Motors Corporation
